The Most Versatile Mountain Camo Pattern Part Two – Alpine Environment

In the second installment of our camo comparison we shot in very wet, overcast conditions in an alpine boulder field and scree slope. Here in BC there is often some greenery present well above 5,000 feet so again this specific shoot scenario may not be as applicable to those that hunt in drier, warmer climates. But there’s no question part two occurred in the kind of weather you’re virtually guaranteed to run into at some point if you spend enough time in the mountains of the high North or Northwest.

We were given the opportunity to include First Lite’s recently released Fusion pattern (fourth pattern in order below), which was not available for the rainforest shoot in part one. Fusion is an intriguing addition to the line-up and is without question a unique and highly effective approach to the new science of concealment. As is generally the case, competition benefits the consumer and with First Lite’s proprietary foray into the concealment realm mountain hunters now have even more choice available to them when selecting the most effective pattern for their given environment.

As always, only you can be the judge as to what pattern and company is optimal for your needs.
