Waldo attire blends nicely! I saw it in a book and TV, so it must be absolute.

It depends on your area of operation.

Urban - normal clothes, maybe khakis, dont want to look tactical at all, or combat ready at all.

Rural - camo is a must however I would shy away from military grade why? it sucks. Mossy Oak or any region/season specific hunting grade camo is way more effective. If you must use military (tiger stripe, MARPAT digital, German Flecktarn depending on the time of year and region). In my region the forests are thick jungle like huge leafy plants, thick underbrush during the summer hence the tiger-stripe or MARPAT, fall flecktarn/MARPAT.

However for in town usage normal clothes by far unless my community rallies into a common defense for each other, in which sticking out wont be a concern. Then again in my area people wear camo all day anyways.

thanks man, i didnt know that about the military grade clothing. thanks!

Camo won't let you blend in urban or suburban environments. Wear street clothes in neutral colors like dull green, brown or gray. Baseball caps have sharp edges and make one easy to spot in the woods. Same goes for wearing black - you'll be too dark.

You should watch the show called Mantracker.


Mantracker is all about finding people who escape into the woods.


Camo will be of no real use in those situations.

Wrong

It is much easier to spot a moving target that contrast the background.

Camo works better the farther you get away from it. The idea is to slow identification as a target.

Wearing a red ball cap? I dont care if your are moving or not...if you are withing 300 yds I can see you.

Camo at 300, much better chance of evading ID as a target.

Like anything Camo is a tool, not a miracle. If you don't know how to make use of camo it's useless.

I would advise a good understanding of movement, light and noise discipline.

I'm wearing something that brings out the color of my eyes.

I'm wearing something that blends-in with my couch.

I'll be rocking back and forth in the fetal position wondering if I should have gone with camo.

Note to the scouts: a moving target will appear in your peripheral vision better than watching for something. Move your point of view and stare at an object (don't move your sight around) and if something moves, your off center vision will pick it up. If your view is moving, this trick doesn't work. Change your sight window every few seconds to cover the entire field of view.

Remember that knat buzzing around you can see until you try to look for it? Same concept...

Want to be avoided? Put on glasses, shave a strip down the middle of your head, walk kind of funny, and roll up your pants legs while pulling your socks way up. Completely dork it up/crazy. Regular people will actively avoid you, and military types will point and laugh at you but not see you as any type of threat. Keep aware, put lower your head and just keep walking. Only threat in this case is mil-bully types that could see you as an easy target. They would want to get you in a secluded area to mess with you though for fear of public backlash, so odds are in your favor.

Personally, I think if troops/cops are around, I'd wear jeans or shorts and blend in as a poor schmuck.

Plus I don't want to attract attention from neighbors/strangers that would make them assume I have any preps.

Only if I hooked up with others/friends would I do that.

 Quoting: TheTruthNeverLies


Because they are idiots. They are putting their face out there for other people to recognize them as preppers. All so they can feel important. Urban camo is to dress like a hobo. Make it look like you have nothing and people will not try and take anything. Make it look like you have kids if you are not a parent and they what ever oppressive force will less likely just hose the place down before entering. It is all about misdirection.
