i am looking into upgrading my camo this year. i am selling my UA Ridge Reaper set and going to try something new. i like UA, but i have heard great things about Sitka and Badlands. i am active duty military and move around quite a bit and need something to tackle different climates and scenerys. my ridge reaper is realtree ap, as well as my boots, packs, etc. i was loving the Sitka gear, but idk about the digital camo. i am sure it works but i will look like a fool with different camos on imo. Btw i and OCD about matching idk why it just bugs the crap outta me. i was hoping you guys had pics of your camo in action or advice on any of the mentioned brands, or really any camo. Thanks

What type of hunting are you planning on doing? Western elk hunting? Bowhunting whitetails in PA?

the more i look into Badlands the more i like them. they use kevlar in their Enduro gear, which sounds like it would really last

Kuiu. Better than Sitka. Owned by the dude that started Sitka. Prices aren't bad either for the quality. Similar or a little less than Sitka, but higher quality materials. Do some research.

Kuiu has a nice camo pattern but from the pics, i really dont see alot of detail in the clothing.

KUIU is top notch, the vias and verde patterns are awesome and they listen to their customers. As was already said, if you research them, you'll see they're awesome. They also carry a full line of merino wool base layers as well as outerwear and accessories.

ASAT is the better pattern IMO......but I love my Sitka....shop AT, Fleabay and Amazon for some deals and you will get it about half price.

I agree. For what you're looking for, you'll be very satisfied with Sitka Gear.

I have some Badlands clothing and bino case. All in Realtree AP and it's my favorite pattern. The only thing I don't like about the Badlands clothing I have is the zippers are hard to open and close.

Look at Kryptek. Versatile patterns and the gear is modeled after military gear. The owners are vets themselves and their slogan is "battlefield to backcountry". The patterns are second to none IMO
