I'm thinking that hoarding camo really lacks a lot of practicality, and would probably rather have a solid "gray man" setup in a SHTF scenario.

I like the idea of using darker tops and lighter bottoms for a general guiding principle of camouflage if needed, but in this case, using muted earth/neutral tones. I live in Seattle, where there's both plenty of concrete as well as green PNW woods, moss, and tall grass in and out of the city. Due to the climate, having something that is water-proof/resistant is pretty important, as well as something I can layer up with and move comfortably in. Something that doesn't scream "tactical", isn't BDU baggy, but serves the functions as such discreetly and effectively as possible.

I'm liking the idea of getting a green Condor Aegis hardshell jacket along with some khaki Condor Cipher pants and just throw on some boots. What do you all think?

Flannel plaid shirt, 5% spandex blue jeans and growing a beard works (I used to hate them, now I'm 50/50). Along with a basic analog watch, thumb ring and footwear of your choice; you can blend in almost anywhere. I've been this outside of work since I got by CCW. I look like a basic hipster, but have 6 to 30 rounds of .45 under my belt and no one is any the wiser.

Not trying to be an asshole, not trying to be argumentative here, but please hear me out.

I think you may be overthinking this. 95% of the normies don't notice this shit, nor do they know one camo pattern from another if they should happen to notice that someone was wearing a surplus-store M65 field jacket and skinny hipster jeans. Really they don't. And, depending on what part of the country you live in and the time of year, a Mossy Oak camo hoodie and jeans can be more commonplace in line at the supermarket than suits and ties or "business casual." So long as you're not fully Multicam'd out and wearing battle rattle and war paint with an M4 slung over your shoulder, you're highly unlikely to get a second look. Gadsden Flag t-shirts might draw an equal amount of unwelcome attention in some areas. Khakis and a hoodie, or sweater or coat appropriate to the weather, are pretty solid for what OP seems to have in mind. I do not think anybody's going to say "oh shit, he's wearing khakis and a faded brown sweatshirt, he must be some kind of TURRORIST going for an urban-camo effect! Let me dial 91 and then hover my finger over the '1' and wait for him to do something!" Hell, Wal-Mart sells camo hoodies just because some people just like them and wear them for shits and giggles.

Others have already noted that the 21st Century Tarnhelm is fluorescent vest + hard hat + clipboard + acting skills in the unlikely event you are approached.

While grey man is obviously useful, is there any real merit to carrying around 30 pounds of guns and gear at all times? Having previously carried around spare mags, ifaks, and at some points a pistol AR in a pack, I felt like it was more equipment than I actually needed for my average grocery run.

Mitten State here.

When I am going to be spending an extended period of time outdoors in cold weather, I do layers.

Inner layer: skivvies and t-shirt, of course.

Over that, double layer thermal suit--spandex shirt and pants over the skivvies and shirt, insulated thermals over those.

Depending on how much time I'm going to be spending outdoors, I may wear a pair of sweatpants over that, and over THAT I put on whichever pair of clean cargo pants is up next in the rotation, usually black because I used to work for a company where black cargo pants were mandated by the dress code. A heavy lined flannel shirt tops it off, maybe with a sweater under it. Oh, and an M65 field jacket. And yes, this is bulky enough to require some thought to be put into the sizes as you put them on.

I worry a lot more about good wool socks--not cotton, not synthetic, REAL WOOL--than what kind of pants to buy if I'm going to be out in ankle-deep slush for hours. Insulated real leather gloves are always appropriate in a state where most years it snows from October to April, too.

A balaclava is good if you are not going to have to deal with minimum-wage security types who get to sit in heated guard shacks and whose "training" tells them that having your face covered (outdoors in -15 F. temperatures and high winds) means you're some kind of "turrorist."

This is an oldie but goodie.
Choose based on your biome #1.
For hunting, whatever you pick make sure you have that blaze orange hi-viz on over it. You do NOT want to be mistaken for a 4-legger.
I chose Marpat myself years ago before multicam came into being. Milsurp is also easy to locate.

holy fuck I didn't even see the CADPAT for a while. I was so focused on the bunny and then the others.

I got myself some surplus woodland camo (which are supposedly even the kind that soldiers wear for possible chemical attack prone areas, but I have my doubts) since I live in the Puget Sound. Seemed closest to what I've noticed bumbling through the woods, and I've never bought camo before so...*gestures widely*

Note also that CADPAT is darker than most of the others, and the gentleman wearing it is standing in front of what appears to be a partially shadowed depression in the ground. If he were standing ten feet to the right or left he'd stand out almost as badly as the guy in the repro tiger stripe. But also remember that any camouflage pattern printed on cloth is going to be a compromise.

Modern reproduction tiger stripe cammies from companies like Rothco seem generally to be printed with the same four colors as M81 Woodland, and have much too much black in them, plus shades of brown and dark olive drab that are way, way too dark. Look at Bat Guano's posts, >>18110 and >>18111, for images of what real actual period tiger stripe cammies actually looked like. The current copies mostly seem to be trying to shrink the original pattern by 50% or more (why? I don't know, but look at catalogs and note that the pictures of the repro gear show a much smaller, finer, denser pattern of skinnier black horizontal stripes than the originals). Between the smaller scale pattern elements and the much darker colors, trying to reproduce that pattern with the four colors of M81 Woodland results in a pattern that "blobs out" into muddy brownish greenish almost-black from more than fifty meters away, as you see in the picture. It could be much worse but there are better patterns out there.

If they were going to redesign the pattern anyway they might as well have put more khaki in it--well, really, the lightest color in some newly printed M81 Woodland, the "tan," is almost exactly the same shade as some companies' "coyote brown" or "flat dark earth," and the brown and green are nearly black. To work with the four colors from Woodland, it needs wider stripes of tan around the black stripes, for more of a disruptive effect. It might work better with the four colors from Green Dominant ERDL, or even from DPM, with its lighter green and khaki providing more contrast and breaking up the outline a bit better.

And yes, the biome in which you will use it is the determining factor. UCP only works well in very specific environments, for example.

I am given to understand, if I may be slightly more serious, that various of the US military's spec-ops units have been for the past decade or longer been using uniforms and web gear made in various civvie deer-hunting patterns for specific circumstances and specific environments. They have used various patterns created by Mossy Oak, Realtree, and

The east German SS uniforms were chosen because the Ossis wanted to have a "uniquely socialist" uniform different from the western uniforms (at the time more of a "military double breasted suit" like the Royal Air Force's uniforms) and uniforms of the Soviet occupational forces.

Of course as Germans are known for their cynicism, perhaps choosing the uniforms of the National Socialists was a subtle joke about how yes Hans, we are the baddies.

they were ballistically superior to the former german helmet. the east germany government also wanted to keep german design but not offend the soviets by using the m40 line of stahlhelms.

Going to the gym in my complex just now, I saw an elderly gentleman walking his dog. He was OCing a pistol in such a fashion that I'm not sure I was seeing it right. I had to get closer.

He had a slim leather holster, barrel sticking out, trigger guard barely covered, obviously meant as a concealed owb holster. The gentleman had it set up as a crossdraw holster.

Are you getting the image? It's a skinny fucking swatch of leather with minimal coverage with THE GRIP FACING OUT FOR ANY WHO WISHES TO SNATCH IT!

>"That is a very poor setup."
>"Well, I like it."
And on he walked.

How are you carrying?

Shield .45, 8 +1 with the Hyve extension. Holster is kydex from a company called Invisiholsters, added an Ulticlip clip, and a crux accessory. The crux pushes in the handgun more, making it easier to carry with a longer mag. Hardly prints at all when I bend down, doesn't print at all standing up.

I was about two months into switching to a Glock 19 Gen fower in a relatively generic leather IWB holster with no cant. I was a little hung up on going so large, but actually it was working out great and I will order a T-Rex Arms nomad for it in about 2 and a half years...


For inna woods I carried a Glock 20 Gen fower in a Gunfighters Inc Kenai chest holster. That shit was the bomb dot com when going up into the back country with full pack system. My 19 actually fit in it quite well too, but there was little reason to when I could have a 10mm in the same basic footprint.
