    Personally, I think Digital Woodland is the best. Works well in nearly terrain, especially at a site like Tigerland. I've seen other player's use Tiger Stripe and CADPAT, again, personal opinions.

    I'd also look into Italian Veg. Woodland and AOR2 (AOR2 seems to be the best where there's more green plant's/grass).

    in common Irish fields.

    i use cadpat and seems to do okay, try not to have one solid colour though as it can really give away your position espically the darker ones
    also flectarn always seemed pretty effictive to me

    Marpat is very popular alright for our environment, there are loads of choices, British DPM, Swedish M90 splinter pattern, good old US woodland Tri-colour. A-TACS foliage green seems pretty good for our wooded areas etc.

    Depending on the time of year multicam is alright.

    Well MARPAT is just short for Marine Pattern, so there basically the same thing.

    My preference is for flecktarn. I picked up some very cheap used gear from asmc.de. Its ex army gear so it can be a bit washed out colour wise (esp on the pants) but i think that adds to the realism and effectiveness of it.

    You don't want shiny new camo!!!

    you will probably be surprised when I tell you that is me wearing the hat and not just an empty room:) Is it the amazing camo or my natural ninja concealment skills? I don't know........
    Be you on a budget or looking for something different I can't recommend http://www.thecamoshop.ie/ enough

    What camo? No sudden movement. But for clothing, the one that's got greens and brown.

    In short, how long is a piece of string. It'll depend g really on the site & its environs, and the time of year, weather, etc.

    I agree too, but it only works for couches.....

    On a serious note, only for mountain areas, rocky terrain, etc.....

    who left their boots on the couch again lads.. oh wait :rolleyes:

    For irish fields? Irish DPM :p
    I find flat OD works just as well as any actual camo pattern. If you just wear different shades of OD for the tac vest, top and bottoms, seems to do the trick :)

    Ye had to bring out the couch photo..........

    Ok back on topic, for close woodland i like to use flecktarn or dpm, for more open ground i use mtp and for urban, it does'nt really matter maybe some grey/ black clothing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37 ✭✭✭ adoyler97


    Im thinking AOR2 combat shirt ,OD vest, AOR2 bottoms and an OD Fast Helmet Sprayed in a snakeskin pattern or AOR2 Hydro dipped
