Hunter Concealment Redefined
Based on effectiveness not appearance, our patterns have been tediously created through years of diligent testing. We use proven core camouflage principles as the foundations for our designs, delivering adaptable concealment solutions capable of performing within multiple hunting environments...
The evolution of Evade has been an ongoing process that has been many years in the making. In it’s infant stages it began as a mimetic pattern, then moved onto an abstract design. There have been in excess of 60 versions created with more than 20 costumes constructed to gauge environmental effectiveness. Each prototype was field tested, photographed, evaluated then revised. This tedious process led to the final development of RTM (Random Tonal Microstructure), which is the key element we use to develop our abstract camouflage.
Coincident disruption refers to a camouflages capability to blend into its surroundings, when not attempting to literally mimic it (as opposed to mimetic camouflage). Our patterns are created through an abstract design process; they do not employ HD imagery or photographic elements, as such they do not aim to mimic any specific environment. Our testing has demonstrated that the randomness of tonal microstructure consistently delivers the most versatile blending capability over a wider range of habitats.
As distances increase, one of the major drawbacks of many camouflage systems is the condition of isoluminant equilibrium. This phenomenon results in a patterns tones and colours melding and uniting into the appearance of a single tonal value, creating a dark silhouette at distance (blobbing out). To counteract this complication, our camouflage employs duo tonal macro pattern elements to enhance visual boundary recognition confusion while assisting with outline boundary deception.
Years of designing camouflage has led us to develop Random Tonal Microstructure (RTM) as the core framework encompassing our camouflage construction. It's use does not employ any geometric elements (pixels, squares, hexagons), nor does it rely on photo-realistic imagery (branches, leaves, grass etc). Composing of spattered, random, shapeless, tonal flecks; the use of RTM allows us to achieve coincidental disruption, enabling the perception of a hunter to visually unite with their background.
Our First Production Pattern
Evade OmniVeil (Omni - in all ways or places, everywhere / Veil - to conceal, hide or obscure) was developed as a multi-terrain camouflage with the active stalking hunter in mind; it incorporates the very best features and is the culmination of all our previous versions.
