Again I say, your money, go for it! Just saying, its NOT a necessary requirement! ...Deleted by CalHunter... Enough time and energy spent on the simple subject of camo!

How could a simple post such as the op made turn into a skunk spraying contest! Good grief!

It is IMO all kind of a pig in a poke. Camo effectiveness often depends on the dyes used. Game sees it differently than you do.

I guess if you could put it under UV light before purchase that might help some.

Waterproof is nice, but I've yet to find any that didn't trap heat to some degree.

I once bought a top of the line, middle insulated, camo, waterproof coverall. After trying it on, I thought all was good. The first time I took it to the woods and was was someplace really quiet, I figured out my coveralls squeaked when I walked (crap). The squeak was almost undetectable by me, Deer and Hogs hear a lot better than I do. Those coveralls have been collecting dust for most of twenty years. I sometimes wear them fishing.

Apology accepted. post edited. To regain some perspective, the OP did ask for member's to post "their" opinions on the subject. Obviously each of us can have different opinions, experiences, parts of the country where we hunt with different terrain/cover and thoughts on the subject. It's pretty smart of the OP to ask for opinions as there is a wide mixture of age, experience, learning curve and opinions on the subject. In essence, the OP got a mini-course on camo which should help her in making decisions on what to buy or not buy. It's part of what makes this forum so invaluable.

But then the deer know you're worried about getting shot and they don't want to stand next to you.
