Any hunter who is serious about his or her camouflage wardrobe has to adapt for the season. To mimic the forest’s color palette, it’s best to go with brown camo for the colder months and green camo for when it’s warmer. That, of course, usually means buying two sets of gear.
However, outdoor outfitter Cabela’s new line of color-changing camouflage apparel seeks to kill two birds with one stone. The company says “ColorPhase is the world’s first camouflage clothing to be printed with rapid-change, temperature-activated dye.”
When temperatures dip below 65 degrees Fahrenheit, the fabric takes on a shade of barren brown, just like vegetation does. Warmer temperatures cause the fabric to take on the greener hues of a blooming forest. Though 65 degrees seems a little warm for cool spring mornings, ColorPhase apparel should give hunters a leg up. If anything, it’ll cut down expenses and make them feel like a chameleon. Or better yet — Predator.
Cabela’s has released a line of caps, gloves, pants, shirts and jackets equipped with ColorPhase technology, ranging in price from $20 to $80. Check out the color-changing gear can in the video. Happy hunting.
