Generally I prefer subdued colours but I do often wear a pair of current issue MTP strides cos they are comfy and cheap and I can't beat the price.
Not keen on doing the cammo head to foot thing cos I don't want to look like a TA wannabee.

Subdued colours for me, BUT I live in the middle of Army grounds (around Aldershot, Hants) and I really don't want to get mistaken for "one of them"
Bit of a shame, cos there are many Army Surplus type places, and the camo gear is well built and pretty cheap compared to "outdoor gear" - if I could figure out a way of dyeing it, I'd be laughing ;)
Happy Easter all, stay well and stay safe

There's dozens of deer and a few bears (until hibernation) that walk the village streets.
Since we can't hunt in the village, people don't wear camo.
At the end of a day out, perhaps it's unavoidable.

Even the snowmobilers (aka sled-heads) strip off a lot of their riding kit (Pieps beacon, Avalungs etc)
before they shop the stores after a day's riding. No chance of getting whacked in the parking lot in front of the liquor store.
