Just How Good Is Blaze Orange Camo For Hunting?

Just How Good Is Blaze Orange Camo For Hunting?

October 29, 2017

Some hunters are reluctant to wear blaze orange camo for hunting. It is one thing to know deer can't see orange, but another to accept that you can wear highly visible bright orange and still be hidden.

But worry not! Hundreds of See3D customers are out in the woods wearing our blaze orange hunting camo. Let them tell you about their experiences!


SF of Montana Gets His Elk

Blaze Orange Camo

"Thank you for the suit. I'm very happy with it. I've got a great elk tag here in Montana next month. If I get a good bull, I will post a pic to your website with the suit on. Thank you!"

Of course, a month later, SF filled his tag wearing our camo!

 "A great 6x5 elk"

"The 3D camo is a hit, 15 yards and never saw me!"



The Other Side of the World - KG from Australia!

"The suit is really good, working better than I expected! I got 25 yards close to a buck, he was walking parallel to me. Took aim and as I was just about to pull the trigger I snapped a twig, it broke and off he went. I have never been that close to one yet.

This is my first one, a female sambar. The ground may look flat but it's not, the sambar like very steep Hills and I believe you me it was very hard getting up and down! Not many open spaces where we could sit back and wait."

Two Brothers From New York State

"Was finally able to give my brother his suit. He absolutely loves the suit works great at the new property. The highlight of the weekend for me was being able to stalk a large doe from 50 yards down to 30 before a misstep that snapped a Twig and she took off. The suit worked perfectly. Hopefully, I will be able to post a successful hunt photo soon!!"

Perhaps Best of all is from this hunter - NB from New York State

"Day 1 in NYS! - This camo is amazing!

I ground hunt, no blind, basically leaning against a tree. I heard a snap off to my rear left and turn ever so slowly to examine the sound. Sure enough, it is a deer about 25-30 yards away. She walks out a bit more and out steps a second, slightly larger doe. As I stand there in awe of the two deer going about eating acorns and other vegetation, the huge mature doe comes out. It was a large doe with two fawn.

They continue to go about their business moving around me and getting closer and closer. As they pass behind a large tree at 15 yards I position myself to take a shot if it presents itself. Out steps another deer, 14 yards broadside just eating a young medium sized doe. The larger mature doe had stepped off to the left into some brush watching to see if there was a threat. She waited a bit and decided to come out. She continues to eat and move about. Twice she looked directly at me 18 yards away and never even batted an eye. I decided not to take the doe with her fawn and watched as they moved up over the ridge.

I went to grab my bow and head in. As I picked up my bow I looked up the hill only to see movement. The mature doe with the two young deer headed in a trot straight at me. I froze and watched in wonderment as this deer was running directly at me. If not for a small downed tree she had to go to the left for she would have run directly into me. The three of them stopped directly behind the tree I was standing next to. The closest deer was 8 yards away from me. They just stood there staring in my direction and sniffing the air. They were too close for me to move to get a shot but for 2 to 3 minutes (felt like about 3 hours) they just stood there looking around before deciding to move on down the hill.

This camo suit is legit. I wouldn't have believed anything would mask someone so well if I hadn't experienced it first hand. If you ground hunt or hunt from a stand and want to be invisible this suit is a must!!!"

Then a few days later!

"You guys are killing me this season!! This camo works TOO WELL!!! This morning I was out gound hunting at the base of a tree. Was by far the best morning weather we have had this season. At 7:30 AM a doe comes out of thicker brush and walks directly toward me at 20 yards. She continues heading toward me and only paused once. She stops to eat acorns at 12 yards. She then mills about and get to 9 yards away. Looks up again and looks AROUND me to see what is behind the tree I am leaning against. She has come in so quickly and close I am unable to even get into a shooting position. She hangs out in front of me for about 30 mins before slowly walking away over the ridge. She never knew I was there!!!"



The proof is here.

Camo Suit Sizing

Our Camo Suits are cut baggy and designed, if needed, to go over the top of other clothes.

For example, here in Vermont late deer season can get cold with snow on the ground, so our suits are cut to wear a warm coat underneath.

Our sizes are organized by height:

If you are hunting in an area where you won't be layering, then these sizes can be ordered as is. If you anticipated layering bulky clothes or are heavier for your height, then consider a size up.

More specific measurements in inches are (note waist is elastic)

Length 42 44 44
Waist 30-38 32-48 34-52
Hipline 48 52 56
Chest 51 55 58
Sleeve 33 34 36
