    Snow Camouflage

    Post by Camo_fiend on Wed Dec 15, 2010 12:48 am

    Hello all... not sure about all of you, but I know for the majority of us, it's wintertime and many of us are going to be experiencing snow at some point or another. As such, I thought it'd be neat to start a thread to discuss and share snow camouflage from various countries around the world.

    I'll start with my all-time favourite snow camouflage: Finnish M/05 snow camouflage.

    It's such a great pattern... it's so effective at breaking up the outline. I had to recount to make sure there were only 5 soldiers (6 if you count the elbow of the one in the corner) in the above photo! I would love to get my hands on a set of this stuff, even if it was a copy, just for the pattern!

    The Finns have also come up with a pattern to wear when there's a dusting of snow in the area of operations, but not enough to warrant the full white & gray suit. Again, this looks to be quite an effective pattern for its intended environment.


    Then there's the classic German "Schneetarn" white & green/reversible to all white snow camouflage uniform. I've actually got a set of these on the way!


    In my research of snow camouflage, I also found that the Russians have come up with another pattern for use in the snow. It's very similar to the German pattern, but the blobs are smaller. I don't have much information on it, though.


    If anyone else knows any other patterns, or even has their own to share, please add them to the discussion! I know they're out there! Smile

    Ordinarily, the last place you would expect to wear desert camo. However, believe it or not, Brit desert DPM is a good match for the dead stalks of winter grass.

    And Gary -- I fully understand...my dog sticks out in the snow as well, but disappears when she ventures into the brush at the edge of the yard. Laughing
