    Default ?? about KUIU camo pattern

    Hey all,

    I have been following the gear thread on this line of hunting appearal.

    I would like to get some of the current users thoughts on the camo pattern. I am a big fan of large open patterns and I thing ASAT is probably my favorite.

    This pattern seems to have a lot of light color in it. Those of you that have used it or thought about it, what are your thoughts of this pattern?

    How well do you think it will conceal in the hunting conditions that Alaska provides? Bear hunting, caribou spot and stalk, dall sheep??

    I know a lot of you don't rely on camo, which is fine. I ordered a set of charcoal pants to wear for everyday hiking and to get a feel for the product.

    Thanks for all your replys.

    ASAT is a great camo pattern, one of my fav's, but the best camo is to keep movement to a minimum.

    I really like the ASAT pattern and think it is very good at breaking up your outline, and matches our fall colors well. This is one of the reasons I think the Kuiu pattern will work good. I'm going to try to give it a good test in the coming weeks. I have used the ASAT on many hunts and had good luck with it.

    No pattern is a substitute for proper hunting technique, but I have watched hunters through my spotting scope wearing the popular woodland patterns and they really stood out.

    In this photo, you can see how the ASAT pattern works in shadow.




    The ASAT pattern works good when in the alders.






    These shrimp never saw me coming...LOL

    All good camo patterns, but I've gotta say - that is a great moose, Stid.

    I really like the outfitter pattern from Cabela's. It works well everywhere I've tried it. Here in Southeast the deer don't even know you are there until you move. I was sitting on a shot rock road while my hunting partner blew his deer call. A doe came out all huffy and stomped all around. When I moved she jumped because she did not see me, only my partner.

    I dont like the colors they chose for the KUIU. I dont think they do either, thats why all the pics on their web site are in black and white.

    Or maybe, since animals don't see in color it represents how game animals see camo?????

    I've been a big fan of ASAT since it came out in the 80s. I have a wool parka in ASAT that I got from Day One and this winter I'm ordering the pants.

    The Kuiu colors and pattern look similar to Predator Fall Grey.
    Now what ?
