I may have missed it, but the main benefit of some of the new 'high tec' fabrics isn't their color patterns, but rather their ability to keep you alive. After growing up with nothing but cotton, I quickly learned in Alaska that without wool to retain body heat, even in relatively mild temperatures, that hypothermia could kill me and it nearly did. However, old school wool is heavy and really, really heavy when wet, so I changed to some Moreno wool, but mostly synthetics that allow perspiration to escape and that dry quickly. That's where Kuiu and Sitka shines, and I love it, but you can find similar fabrics without camo patterns for way less money. I've found solid color pants by Wrangler (that look like Kuiu) and hooded 'fishing' shirts at Walmart on sale for a small fraction of what my Kuiu cost, but still perform for me here in Colorado and on hunts to Arizona, New Mexico, and Alaska. The expensive stuff may last longer, but my box store 'gear' has held up for several years now at roughly one-fifth the cost. Where you will be hunting 'light is right' but dry will allow you to keep you hunting and get you back home alive.
