What pattern was this? I know it's vintage, but can't recall name.

From: LKH

Yes, like 30 years ago. Threw one out a couple years ago but can't remember.

An original Realtree around the same time as Treebark Camo?

From: Paul@thefort
28-Jan-18
at first I thought is was Treebark plus (with the green leaves) but I also think it is Realtree.

From: Woods Walker

It's Realtree, First Week of October for North of 36 deg Latitude. ;-)

Looks like marijuana leaf camo

I had one like that! Used to duck hunt out of it. Let’s say 1990. Does that sound about right?

Yep- Realtree. I was pretty sure it wasn't Jim Cromley's Trebark.

Sold by Cabelas, very warm, use when in the 20s. Zip up. I have the pants also. Would love to find an 1x jacket. Or bulk material to make another set. I have been using these for over 20 yrs.

From: Hawkeye

Yep...the original Realtree by Bill Jordan. I know because it was my first jacket and pants pattern in 1992!!

29-Jan-18
Old school...Love it!

Was that from the old Dick Idol collection?

From: Joey Ward

I have that jacket. It's an XL. Bought it from Cabela's many years ago. My son wears it now.

Willing to pay for one!!

It's a classic from the era of "blob" camo. If you did wear this and you had success with it then hats off to you, because you most definitely have the discipline and patience to move VERY little when you hunt!

From: Joey Ward
29-Jan-18
Uh...........Thank you.

From: ohiohunter

I personally don't see much difference between this "blob era" camo and a lot of the camo out today.

From: Woods Walker
29-Jan-18
I agree, and that's the roots of a lot of today's camo.

What these patterns prove is that camo in and of itself really doesn't matter, as long as you don't shine, make noise, and most importantly MOVE! Being aware of your terrain, background and shadows is also paramount to blending in. Treebark was another one of the classic blobs. It was great if you were in or standing right in front a thick tree and you had NO sky or other open background.

My experience has been that you have to be still no matter what camo you wear. I liked the old Trebark and Realtree. I set up in big oaks and I think I look more like a tree trunk with the old stuff.

From: Woods Walker
29-Jan-18
Yup. Point is more important to ACT like a tree trunk than to look like one.

I have this old camo coat. It’s reversable to solid white. It’s a great coat for late season deer hunts/coyote hunting

Gotta love the ol stuff

Woods walker ....right on brother.!! Well said

That's why I mostly wear drab colors. Deer and elk are drab colored, aren't they...?

Earth tones is what my interior decorator calls them....

Yeah right, like I have an interior decorator... more like interior dictator.

"Yeah right, like I have an interior decorator... more like interior dictator."

You have one of those too? Great! Now I don't feel so alone! (That's a REALLY good description!!!)

From: 76aggie

I believe it was Realtree Gray. I thought it was the best color in the world for hunting out of a Texas Live Oak Tree. I still have a Cabelas fanny pack and a handwarmer muff in that pattern. Gotta be at least 30 years ago. They also had Realtree Brown and then that became X-Tra Brown and they did away with the Gray.

From: Woods Walker
30-Jan-18
It's probably because the deer were able to ascertain the subtle differences between the brown and grey tones.........;-)

I have that same camo pattern in a jacket that I cut the sleeves off to wear as a vest. The sleeves were made for a man with 2' long arms. Lol It's all fleece from about 1990.

From: White Falcon

Almost like Original Real tree, but this has leaves. Still looking for a XL jacket.

From: fisherick

I had that original Real Tree fleece jacket and pants in 1988, gave it away about 10 years ago.
