Hyperstealth’s front man Guy Cramer has written a rather extensive look at the recent history of US Army camouflage development. Inspired by the large number of online commenters stating that OD provided the best camouflage, he dug into his archives to demonstrate that this isn’t the case at all and goes one step further by using the US Army’s documentation to make the case for environmental specific camo patterns and explain why the Army ended up conducting the Camouflage Improvement Effort.
Cramer is very open about the fact that he worked with ADS Inc to offer the US4CES family of patterns so he has some very staunch opinions about camouflage. In my opinion, this doesn’t color his article but it’s worth knowing while you read it all the same. Ultimately, it is definitely worth your time to read.
