Yep! I've been saying that since camo became popular.
Funny, but I got comments when i'd wear my old 1950's Woolrich coat around town. I'd get guys say things like...Hey! I used to have a coat like that. Now, I wear the camo jacket, and I just look like one of the boys. Nobody says a thing. Go figure.
For me, Prarie Ghost and Max 1 usually when hunting in sage and junies. I also use Mossy Oak break-up when hunting the timber. I agree with some of the other posts that motion is what usually gets you busted but i think you have a whole lot more wiggle room fully camoed out.
I have a few patterns but mainly wear Kings desert and mountain shadow depending on wear I hunt. Weather it makes a diffrence or not, I like blending into my surrondings. Wearing regular close makes it feel like any other day not in the field.

Mossy oak tree stand for me, It has a nice large contrasting pattern, lots of moss greens and grays. Small patterns and ones with little contrast, from a distance just blend together. The original tree bark pattern (30 years ago) made you look like a blue thing standing in the woods from a distance, it's pattern was so small it appeared as one color from a distance. It was useless. I had a set that was similar to predator pattern just after the treebark set and couldn't believe how much better it was. Those big contracting patterns, break up the human appearance. I think if it looks really cool, then it's not the best pattern. Too much is designed to sell to because it looks neat or realistic. It's not the 3d or life like looking leaves, but the deep contrast getting your shape, outline, and pattern broken up. Might be different in a desert setting, but the mossy oak tree stand works great in sage flats, pine spruce forest, and while in a tree stand back east.
If I buy more camo I like this pattern the best. Oops! Wrong pattern came up. Choose the Outfitter Camo pattern.

I buy all my hunting gear when it's on sale and I even choose solid colors if I can save some money. Backcountry gear is not cheap and a lot of the better gear isn't even made by the big clothing makers and the stuff that is....wow....300 to 400 bones for a rain coat....really? B.B. mentioned an event jacket from rei so I checked it out and caught it on sale for 130 and love it and it's solid black cuz. No one is going to convince me that I would be better off in a $350 rain jacket with a camo pattern in the rain than my black event jacket!
