    Multicam almost always ranks second in tests the Army has done. To rank first you need a specific pattern for the environment.

    exactly why hunters use environment specific patterns. If you can only have one set and don't know what environment you will be in then multi-cam is the best you can get.

    If you need better than that then you are going to have to start attaching the environment to your body.

    +1 on earth tone colors. Unless you're actually in the military or live in VERY rural areas, actually wearing camo in a SHTF situation just doesn't make much sense to me until much later in a POST-SHTF situation. For the first 6 months or so of SHTF you don't want to draw attention to yourself by wearing camo IMO.
    I'm slowly trying to replace my entire wardrobe with basic tan and greens in cargo pants and in shirts. My daily uniform is a pair of jeans and a T-shirt as it is, so it's only a slight change.
    I also have actual camo/ghillie suits for hunting / later use POST-SHTF.

    Camo should match your terrain - by that I mean, if you live in the city, don't wear camouflage clothing at all, you will stand out like a sore thumb. The best urban camouflage would be to dress like a homeless person, no one even acknowledges their existence. In a more sub-urban area dress like everyone else. In rural areas, do pretty much the same as in the suburbs. If your out in the wild, there are many types which will work. I'm partial to Realtree, and a new Mossy Oak type called "Ghil-leaf", (available at Cabela's) which is a ghillie type suit that incorporates leaves and other debris to make the effect even more lifelike.
