My opinion on the new ACUPAT, is that the color is REDICULOUS!!! Unless you plan to fight in a gravelpit, what good are they? As a soldier, I intend to avoid the ACU's at all cost, and as a paintballer, I'll never wear them. Not SpecOps fault though. The AArmy in it's infinate wisdom has decided that we don't really need camoflauge anymore. Personaly, if that's the case, we should go back to blue, looks sharper. I intend on buying the MarauderII as my field wear, but there's no way I'm doing the ACU thing. Now the woodland Digi?
Love it, and if they've got MARPAT I'll like that better.
I hear what you're saying. I'm in high desert (Boise area) so everything here is much more tan in color. But I think you'd be surprised, especially in the shadows / shade.
As in camo face paint, you lighten areas of facial shadows and darken light areas (i.e. bridge of the nose, etc.). I've noticed, that while they stand out quite a bit when you're in wide open spaces, they actually do pretty good if you're in the shade by making you a false highlight-- versus BDU's when you're in the shadows, you just become a darker blob.
IDK, I think we're all stuck in a cycle of fashion. Honestly, if you really want something to blend in correctly, a wise person would look at other camo options out there, like Real Tree or Advantage... but then you don't have the PB functionality built in.
