Opinions On Natural Gear Camo

Postby SUduckman65 » Thu Jan 24, 2013 12:27 am

Just looking for some opinions from people that have seen it or actually used it. I duck hunt in north Alabama and was wondering how well it would blend in down here. Found a ton of it on sale is why I'm curious.

Too light and grey. I like mossy oak bottomland.

Believe it or not, it is one of those that isn't very eye appealing up close, but get 50-100yds away and it blends in to a fall background amazingly!

That's what I've heard, that it blends in pretty well with just about any setting. I just wanna be sure before I commit to new waders and a jacket in the pattern.

It matches in to flooded timber better than anything else I've seen. I'm a big fan of bottomland,but the natgear stuff is legit

better than bottom land because at a distance everything gets darker with shadows and such. I love my natty gear for deer hunting and I'm going to pick up some more for next year.

I have NAT GEAR and find it works very nicely here on Kansas rivers, when in the trees, against a leafy riverbank, etc.
It doesn't match that well in cattails, bulrush, corn, or other tan-colored environments...but, it's not that bad, either, even though there are better patterns for that stuff.
As others have said, at least it doesn't appear black from a distance.

Doesn't catch the human eye as appealing and it doesn't catch the birds eye either :lol3: I think it's one of the best patterns out it just doesn't sell because it doesnt have all the grass and stuff, plus it doesn't get dark after 50 yards almost everything else does

I have two coats in Natural Gear ASAT camo pattern, the one made by NAT GEAR is greyish. The one made by AGO is brownish. Something to keep in mind....

Does Natural Gear fit true to size? I am looking at the Medium sized jacket (size 40 chest) but the size chart says a 40 chest would be on the high end range (size 38 to 40) for a Medium. I plan to layer at least a slim fleece vest underneath.

Also, there windblocker fleece pullover is by far the warmest and cheapest pullover out there.

I like my natgear! It's great for hunting the river or tree lined lakes. Also bean fields, or pea/lentil fields up north it works great too. The only time I don't wear it is cattails, or corn/wheat fields. It's a great all-around camo that doesn't break the bank.

most folks don't like nat gear because it's not appealing to the eye and it's not a big sponsor company. And now a days with all these tv shows its all about the sponsors and money. Nat gear always amazes me in hunting situations: in rocks it blends in nearly perfect, tree stand n ground hunting especially with white oaks you will disappear, corn fields does well, and just about enerywhere else. I also like the fact you can order it direct from nat gear their thick 400 gram windproof pullovers are 59 bucks and a macks or drake made basically the same go for 90 to 150. i have been wearing one for 7 seasons and it's still nearly like new.

I have had blinds, and camo in Nat gear for over ten years. It is a great pattern, and blends into anything.

I recently bought some Max-4 camo. And after hunting 3 or 4 times with my buddy who wears all Natgear, I'm regretting my purchase... He blends in to every hunting setting we've encountered. Invisible in flooded timber (Literally, he had to take off his glove and wave at me last weekend so I could make it back to our hole after chasing a cripple) and it even looks good when we're hunting rice and reeds. It'll be the next pattern I buy, for sure.

Like the other guys have said, it's not gonna win a fashion contest, but it's the real deal where actual camoflage is concerned.
I was told people wouldn't take me seriously without a signature.

Nat gear, works great tin timber so it works well for duck and deer hunting and works good enought around ponds in dead grass. Really like Nat gear. Get the Nat gear windproof hoodie in fleece and you have a good piece of kit.

In terms of price, quality, and pattern that blends well where I hunt, nat gear is one of my favorites.

The nat gear fleece vest and pullover are some of the thickest, warmest fleeces I've used.

Two thumbs up for nat gear! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Blends in very well for timber hunting; doesn't appear too dark at a distance and matches the color of the water better which is a part of the background. I like the lighter color, too. Not as eye catching on the shelf as patterns with sticks and leaves, but in the woods...

SC2 looks really good when things green out

Great camo. I like bottomland really well, but natgear is more versatile for where I go.

I wear nat gear coyote hunting. It is the best looking camo you can get. I have killed many a coyote wearing nat gear.
