IMO predator breaks up your outline better then any camo out there right now.

Greg posted this site a while back, these pictures show just how great this camo is. http://www.whitetail.com/camo1.html

Here are some of the pics in black and white from that site.









This is the Mossy Oak type pattern, you can see the black blob


This is the predator, you can see it breaks up the human outline much better


This picture shows the excellent breakup ability of the fall grey pattern. The hunter is even skylighted. Try that with mossy oak or realtree.

I don't believe in the latest and greatest research that deer see in black and white so those pictures are mute. ( I do however believe in Predator but not Fall Grey except perhaps treestands, late season, I'd prefer Fall Brown which is obsolete)

When I buy camo, it's for all seasons, all terrain so given that, I wouldn't wear Fall Grey in the turkey woods, I would however wear ASAT and the new Enigma in the turkey woods, treestands, fall ground cover.

If I could afford several camos, which I could and actually own all the above, I might wear Fall Grey in the right situations however when I head to a stand and anticipate wind directions, my plans change and I might find myself on the ground, let's say the first week of archery in the green woods, the last thing I would wear is Fall Grey Predator if nothing more than I would feel like a sore thumb in the open wearing it. I love Fall Grey in a tree when the leaves are down but that's a specialty situation come late season.

If you can afford to buy multi camos for various situations, I'd recommend Predator Fall Grey, Enigma, ASAT and even Predator Spring Green. If I'd buy one camo for all situations, I'd go Enigma or ASAT but because of customer service alone along with the material called Wolfskin, all else being equal the new Enigma intriques me, I'd pick Enigma.

I'm a tried and true ASAT guy, but my Enigma suit will be here Monday or Tuesday.....That's my choice for this year. I'll post some pics when I get it. I'm very, very excited about it, especially after reading "iamyouhuckleberry's" Return From Africa thread.

This will be my 3rd season using ASAT which is what I use most. However I also have a Mossy Oak set that I use from time to time.

I mostly wear Army surplus camo in 3 color Desert and Woodland , but given a preference I'd wear Natural Gear . I have a jacket in that pattern , deer look right past it and never notice you .
