just go with the camo pattern that looks like the type of woods you hunt in. Really any one of those are good choices so you could just go with the one that looks best to you.

Most camo is more effective at catching the hunters "eye" than really hiding him. I like large open patterns and those with a lot of gray. Mossy oak tree stand is good, asat, cabelas outfitter are some good examples. They vertigo pattern also looks really good as it has a lot of white along with traditional patterns, so it will probably work best at hiding you than the others.

Like 5 said, large open patterns I really like predator fall grey,you will become part of the skyline in the tree, ASAT is good also. I dont care for camo that has pictures of tree limbs and leaves on it. Makes you turn into a blob,open patterns will break your silehoute(sp) .02 cents

They all work. Your movement is the biggest key. I had elk at 3 feet to 10 yards multiple times last week and I have a couple different patterns on. they looked right at me and went back to feeding if I didn't move. I think I had Realtree Hardwoods and AP.

I like MO Treestand, and I wear a lot of AP as well. Lighter(color), more open patterns are generally a little more effective from a treestand.

I like AP and MO treestand. I didnt like vertigo because of the white. When its just before you cant see anymore, the deer deer can pick up on the white and especially if the white is moving. I actually liked the feel and fit of the vertigo the best, but because of what ive heard from others, didnt end up getting it because of the colors.
