Which do you prefer? Natural gear seems to be running a little cheaper. I want something light that breathes well for early season.

Jdub,

To be honest - I've never tried the Natural Gear suit.

I got an ASAT 3D a couple of years ago am really pleased with it. The 3D material is sewn onto a fairly coarse mesh fabric - can't breathe much better than that. I use mine from Aug. thru Feb. - just layer other clothes underneath.

Hope this helps!

You might want to consider the new MAX-1 leafy suit at bass pro... it's 3D and is made of mesh and would probably fit in real well in FL. Oh yea... the suit is CHEAP. Pants and a coat for like $80.

ZA206: What is your thoughts on the Max-1 3d suit? The Max-1 pattern has brush that doesn't really fit my area (NE Texas and SW Arkansas), but the lights and darks seem to make it an "open" pattern which seems to be what everyone is going to.

What is anybody's thoughts on the Max-1 pattern for areas that don't really have the type of brush shown in the pattern?

The realtree guys are actually starting to use this pattern even when they are hunting out of their tree stands. The lighter colors help breakup your silohouette better than all the real dark patterns.

ASAT 3D Leafy suit for me...it has a better blend of lights and darks, wear whatever I want underneath, works in the trees or the ground. The only time I won't wear it is when I'm in my DB Matrix...then it's ninja-wear:ninja:

I just got the silent stalker suit in Max-1 from Bass Pro... it's not leafy, but very lightweight for hotter climates. I personally think the Max-1 would blend in very well in almost every situation and in every area. I bought it for my elk hunt next week (looks perfect in the aspen groves) and for turkey hunting next year here in the Carolinas.

It's a much better all around pattern than MONBU or Hardwoods IMO. I also think it's better than MO-Brush b/c brush doesn't have enough definition for me..... literally, you'd have to be sitting in grass or weeds to make that stuff work.

Anyways.... those are my thoughts.

Oh yea... I get a headache looking at ASAT.:eek: :wink:

Seems to be a toss up so far, I'm going to run over to Bass Pro tonight and check out the Natural Gear and Max-1 Suits in person. I like to be able to put my hands on stuff before buying.

Well, I ended up with the Natural Gear. Found the 3-D suit for $70 bucks on sale, kind of hard to say no at that price. The Max-1 stuff at BPS looked great too, but they about sold out of everything.

I was in a bass pro the other day and there was a guy pushing mothwing camo and I told him I was a ASAT guy and he was like oh ok like I was being a smart arse I am not to sure he even knew what it was. The mothwing looked to me like some more of that fade to black camo when you put a little distance on it.
