    I think these are the patterns that Gore was creating to be tailored to animal vision aren’t they? I remember seeing something a while back about it and thought it was pretty ingenious.

      That’s what they say. Regardless if that’s true or not, the patterns work great in my experience.

      I hope they release this pattern for US markets.

      I was under the impression they were made by Hyperstealth?

      I wasn’t aware that “high end hunters” in Europe had started wearing tactical-dude camouflage and orange baseball caps. Times sure must be changing.

        Sitka isn’t tactical-dude duds. It’s high end hunting couture.

        • Jeff S says:

          After five years in Germany, I would expect “high end hunters” to be wearing a dark green or brown outfit from Härkila or Jagdhund… Something a bit more traditional. At least that’s what the hunting stores sold.

          Oh well.

      One of our team members used their “waterfowl” pattern in Afghanistan to great effect.

    I am both encouraged and annoyed with so many new patterns being fielded. Encouraged because more suppliers, more startups and more innovation is always a good thing. Annoyed because logistically, the availability will be depending on a single supplier, rather than a number of companies supplying an industry standard pattern or set of patterns.

    That said, Sitka makes great stuff, and I like this darker pattern. Their initial pattern colorway is far too close to ACU for my comfort.

    Looks like M81 Woodland colors with a lighter “sand/tan” color added.

    Need to see it under better lighting, but not bad at first look.
