    I'll try to remember that. BTW, my oldest son has put in 19 years in the Navy so he's been on board a ship or two. It's been a great thing for him.

    OregonJim, my Cirrus is a nice medium gray that blends well. If you want camo then look at Wild Things. A bit heavier, but from all accounts its good gear.

    Thanks that would be much better than some of those other colors.

    I guess if you cover it up it wouldn't matter anyway.
    I have tried on a Wild Things jacket and it look like it would do well.
    I really wish some of these high end companies would offer some of their products in some colors that were more HUNTER friendly.

    No one not aiming at the hunting market is going to make things in camo and of course some hikers, bikers and climbers really dislike hunters, but you can usually get their stuff in gray or black, sometimes brown.

    I wouldn't worry too much about "hunter" friendly colors. I've bowkilled Western critters in all shades of gray, blue, neon green, and others. Remember, movement is usually the death of an encounter, not color tone. Remember - these backpacking "yuppie" companies make better, lighter, occasionally not as durable, but usually higher quality gear than 99.9% of hunting companies...oh ya, and it's usually cheaper. As a TIGHT budget hunter, it makes for an easy decision.

    To add suggestions to the thread, GoLite has a nice 1/4 zip midlayer with wind blocking features built into it. Makes a great outer layer in the September high country. The exact name is slipping my mind, but Canyon something or something Canyon. Very lightweight and I've yet to own a GoLite product that I wasn't impressed with.
