I rarely miss a game at "The Front" - I don't plan on missing the last.

I'll be shooting a brown GEO or tan Automag... wearing either the Sly in my avvy or a Multicam Profiler.

Everything is cheaper than Dyecam, :).

I've seen two different options on solid colors in that color range - Desert Sand / Desert Tan (whited out sandy color) & Coyote Tan (beige/yellowish color). Coyote tan looks better w/ MC, Desert Sand is closer to the color of the old 3 or 6-color Desert.

Depending on the material - you should be able to find a full set of MC BDU's for around $80 online, check around (may even find free shipping).

Dyecam is nice, the pattern is pretty close to MC (my Rotor matches pretty well w/ my MC) - but the cost of buying it isn't really for the pattern, it's for the clothing. Dye makes some really nice softgoods, I have a pair of forearm pads that I've beat the snot out of for the last 2+ years & they barely look used.

If you are keeping the ACU's... never wash them. Just let all that dirt & mud grind into them to help dull them down. Otherwise it's way too bright a pattern to wear in the woods effectively, imho.

The bottom line is if you are interested in using your camo to assist in hiding, you need to find color schemes that works best with the regions, seasons, and positions you hide in.

QFT - good stuff

And that's exactly what he means by neutral... Coyote Tan, Coyote Brown, or OD molle base w/ either camo or solid pouches - mixing it up is perfectly fine. That way if you do get two sets or even find yourself adding another set down the road it won't cost you a full new rig as well.

The place I play in NE Ohio - lots of underbrush, grassy fields, full-on forest, concrete urban area, etc... colors all change w/ the seasons, from the browns of Winter to bright greens of Spring & tans/yellows of late Summer / early Fall. I've had an exceptional experience w/ Multicam. I've had teamates lose me when only 15' away & groups of bad guys walk within 10' only to look right over top of me. It isn't absolutely perfect in every setting of the field but unlike most patterns, it's never bad in any of those areas. At the same time, a lot of guys at the field use Woodland Digi to great effect. I would've walked right up on a guy this past Saturday had I not seen his bare hands through the 15' of brush that were in between us, it was getting close to dusk so even without any green it blends pretty well in any darker environment like underbrush & obviously works great when the forest is full green. However it looks pretty bad in any lighter background, especially during the Fall or in town.

If you have to go w/ one setup then MC is pretty ideal for varied terrain like you may encounter in the Midwest, if you can swing the two then add Woodland Digi. Most Woodland digi is pretty easy to find locally (surplus stores) & is typically the same price as any ACU or Woodland. As for MC, the cost isn't as high as it used to be (usually around $5-10 bucks more for a pair of MC BDU pants vs. woodland/acu/digi) & w/ online shopping anything MC is pretty easy to find. If you really want to save money on MC then you can try the Chinese knock-off versions but they can be hit or miss as far as colors.
