An investment geared towards the right camo for deer season is worth every penny.
Over the years, I've been through many different camo manufacturers and patterns with incredibly mixed results.
Some brands live up to their marketing, others fall extremely short. The problems that often arise in choosing the correct camo is the ability to be flexible when weather patterns change throughout the season, and more importantly, throughout the day.
From what I've found, picking the right camo for deer season is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Luckily, Badlands is blazing a trail for camo that is all you will ever need.
Badlands offers a lineup of camo that literally covers every season. It all mixes together and is mostly interchangeable.
For example, for the lineup that I have chosen and will be wearing exclusively this year, a Badlands fleece with a vest is all you will need for the early season.
As the season drags on and the weather starts taking a turn for the worse, this is where Badlands really shines.
All of their camo retains heat much better than any other camo I have ever worn, and also much less bulky as well. These two features combined made this next step in deer season camo a no-brainer.
For bibs that are incredible packable as well as incredibly warm, you can't do any better. I keep these bibs in my pack until I need them.
Adding this layer in the treestand is like turning on the heater in the truck.
Finally, the last layer is actually a system. The Shed Jacket is all you need for whatever the winter may bring.
The jacket has a detachable fleece on the inside with a waterproof outer layer that is all easily packable. You are now in business.
This three-in-one parka has all the parts that will keep you warm and waterproof during the mid season, then combined to top off the best camo for deer season you have ever worn for late season.
As mentioned above, all of this camo can be crushed down and fit in a backpack together. You simply can't find that with other manufacturers.
Pack it in, put it on, and pack it out. You can stay cool on the way to your stand, warm as can be in your stand, then cool on the way out.
One thing to keep in mind though, the secret to all this camo mentioned above is great base layers.
Once that part of the system is in place, you will find you will actually be able to focus on hunting instead of worrying about the weather is going to do.
All and all, you simply can't find better camo options than this.
