The guys over at Gray Light Productions have a great hunting camouflage comparison over at their forum. The comparison features several of the most popular (and newest) hunting camouflage patterns, including: Realtree AP, Realtree Max-1, ASAT, Mossy Oak Treestand, Gore Optifade Open Country, and KUIU’s new Vias pattern.

Be sure and visit the thread for many more comparison photos in varying terrain.
This comparison really shows the different approaches that the patterns take at concealment; some patterns try to blend the person in to the surroundings (realism), while others try to break up the outline of a person (fragmentation). I typically wear Realtree AP, and I am pretty happy with how it performed in this comparison.
How about you? What pattern do you typically wear? How has this comparison changed what you thought about a certain pattern?
