List Rules Only military production camo (any era). No self made. No custom. No hunting. No prototypes.

Camouflage is used the world over by man and beast, to hunt, to hide, to be seen. While many animals have specialized their camouflage to the local environment, military needs are more varied. More often than not military applications must be useful in multiple locations and in varying conditions. What is the most affective camo pattern, past or present, could be argued until the cows come home and new patterns are being prototyped every day. What we're concerned with here is the popular opinion on production prints.

Whether serviceman, serving or retired, pattern aficionado, paintball or airsoft warrior, or simply like to voice your opinion on the best looking cloth -here is the place to vote.

The best military camouflage patterns is an open list, please add any missing patterns and respect the criteria.
