Top tips for buying camouflage jackets for shooting

The type of camo you are going to need can differ depending on the time of year, location or quarry you are hunting. The basics will always apply: pick a camo that will help you to blend in with your surroundings and made from a quiet material that will help to mask your approach. There are plenty of technical patterns and fabrics available to choose from but don’t forget that tweed was helping to keep hunters camouflaged before they all came along, taking its colours from the moorland with patterns to break up the hunter’s outline — just like its modern descendants.
