Forest Patterns
Mossy Oak® Break-Up®
Mossy Oak Break-Up features a computer-enhanced background of digitized red oak bark which is overlaid with a subtly mottled Bottomland pattern. It also features exclusive "Ghost Shadows" which depict the shading effect of branches and leaves that are out in front of the elements in the pattern, which significantly increases the three- dimensional effect of original Break-Up. All of the natural elements in the pattern (bark, leaves and limbs) are computer-enhanced digital images for exceptional realism.
Mossy Oak Break-Up Country

Mossy Oak® Break-Up® Country™

Mossy Oak Break-Up COUNTRY combines digitally enhanced, life-sized natural elements with the perfect colour tones to help you blend in and shadowing elements that truly break up your outline. So, no matter where you hunt, becoming a part of your surroundings won’t be a problem anywhere across the COUNTRY!

Mossy Oak® Break-Up® Infinity
Featuring unprecedented depth, unequalled detail and elements with remarkable contrast, Break-Up Infinity truly offers hunters another dimension in camo. Each element – leaves, limbs, acorns and branches – was selected to create unmatched realism and contrast to break up a hunter’s silhouette. Then they were placed over multiple layers of actual images from the woods to create a multi-dimensional depth of field unlike any camouflage ever created. Break-Up Infinity is the first pattern ever that you can actually look into much the same way you look into the woods.
Realtree AP™
This "all-purpose" pattern is neutral, open, contrasting and realistic all pieces of the puzzle to make a camo pattern versatile and effective. Realtree considered the effects of Mother Nature and washing machines and printed the pattern to hold its contrast through real-life conditions.
Realtree XTRA®

Realtree XTRA® 

Realtree XTRA® works in more hunting situations than any other camo pattern available. Patterned by arranging natural elements like tree trunks, limbs and a variety of leaves over large open areas, then layering these elements at different depths within the pattern to create an amazing 3-D effect. It's this unique process that makes hunters disappear in nearly any hunting situation they find themselves in.

Realtree XTRA Green®

Realtree XTRA® Green
Realtree XTRA® Green with its detail and contrast works great for early-season bowhunting - where green is needed and closeness counts. It uses the natural elements like tree trunks, limbs and a variety of leaves over large open areas while adding a variety of color in the leaves to set it apart. With this specfic colour palette, Realtree XTRA® Green perfectly matches the lush, vibrant greens of the woods, making it ideal for anyone hunting in spring through early fall.

  Seclusion 3D®
The most universally effective camouflage ever created with varying degrees of focus and contrast in three distinct layers of components, Seclusion 3D® gives the appearance of depth and shadow. It is this shadowed, variable-focus image that projects an amazingly realistic illusion of depth, instead of a simple two-dimensional scene. The first outermost layer of images has photo-quality detail for a perfect match with nearly any landscape. The secondary layer has six separate focal distances of varying clarity to enhance the illusion of depth to appear as though you’re looking right through it rather than at it. The background of dissolved universal tones creates shading and highlights to blend the top two layers into your surroundings. The pattern also incorporates blends of light and dark for a shadowed appearance that breaks up your entire outline with the same counter-shading effect that nature’s predators use to get within striking distance of their prey. You won’t just match your surroundings, you’ll vanish into them.
Zonz_Woodlands Cabela's Zonz™ Woodlands
Woodland hunters are likely to find themselves in one of the three "zones" while out in the field - whether perched in a tree stand, hiding in heavy brush or stalking through sparse, leafless branches. Now, for the first time ever, there's a camouflage that perfectly blends all three zones.
ZonzBackcountry

Cabela's Zonz™ Backcountry

Hunters are likely to find themselves in one of three "zones" while out in the field - whether hiding in pines at the treeline, stalking through the alpine slopes or traversing mountain rock slides. Now, for the first time ever, there's camouflage that perfectly blends all three zones – Cabela's Zonz™ Backcountry. It utilizes the science of macro breakup and microtexture in both digital and photo realistic applications.

Optifade_Concealment_Forest

Optifade™ Concealment Forest
As a science-based concealment pattern from W. L. Gore, this pattern prevents animals from recognizing a hunter as a predator, even when detected. Optifade Forest contains greens and browns that make a hunter's outline vanish against trees, brush and foliage. The pattern is ideal for treestand hunting in wooded environments.

Marsh/Waterfowl Patterns
Mossy Oak® Duck Blind®
With its unique blends of camouflage elements, Duck Blind is easily the most diverse waterfowl pattern available. Duck Blind is built on a base background of true dirt colours with different tones to represent wet and dry ground. With added elements of millet, wild oats, corn stalks, phragmites, Johnson grass, soybeans and native grasses, the unique shadows enhance depth and create a 3-D effect, while the muted shades of brown, tan, gray and soft black work well for blending into virtually any waterfowl environment.
  Mossy Oak® Shadow Grass®
The key elements in Shadow Grass are first the dark shadows that are cast from the blade of grass. Of all elements found in the outdoors, shadows more than anything are constant. These shadows run at different angles to add contrast, break-up the pattern and retain "Long Distance Visual Integrity". Second is the realistic detail in each blade of grass found on the pattern.
  Realtree MAX-4®
Realtree MAX-4 was designed to offer maximum effectiveness in open terrain - without geographical limitations. The pattern incorporates cattails, millet, milo, corn stalks, dead sunflowers, oak and maple leaves, cedar and oak limbs, plus a variety of other plant life into the largest camouflage artwork on the market. It melts into marshes, grasslands, deserts, broomsage, croplands…even the open canopy of a treetop. It’s ideal for deer, turkey, waterfowl and western big game. Coast to coast, border to border, it works.
RealtreeMax5 Realtree MAX-5®
Built with waterfowlers in mind, new Realtree MAX-5 is filled with cattails, reeds, cane and grasses to blend into flooded marshes. Plus corn, wheat, oats and sunflowers to hide you in open fields. It has branches, twigs and leaves that work in flooded timber. And with open areas that mimic mud, water, bark and shadows, MAX-5 literally adds another layer of invisibility to camo – no matter where or how you use it.
Seclusion_3D_Backwaters Cabela's Seclusion 3D® Backwaters®
Cabela's Seclusion 3D Backwaters is adapted specifically for waterfowlers from the popular Seclusion 3D pattern. The photo-quality images of fallen timber over a brown background effectively break up your form, so you can hunt sloughs and rugged backwaters without spooking ducks or geese. This pattern offers the same unmatched realism as all of our Seclusion 3D patterns.

Open Country Patterns
  Seclusion 3D® Open Country®
From the desert Southwest to the vast expanses of grasslands that stretch from Canada to Texas, many species of game thrive in wide-open country. To hunt them successfully, you need a camo pattern that blends with the sage, long-stem grasses and rocky ground found in these regions. Cabela’s Open Country’s unique digitally produced pattern does this better than any other camo. It has been optically formulated to blend with the colours of tree-less terrain, with a unique overlay of light brush that breaks the pattern up for effectiveness at any distance. Like all Seclusion 3D patterns, Open Country gives you the advanced performance needed for consistent big-game hunting success.
ZonzWestern Cabela's Zonz™ Western

Optifade_Concealment_OpenCountry Optifade™ Concealment Open Country
The first science-based concealment pattern from W. L. Gore. OPTIFADE Concealment Open Country results from studies done on how deer see their surroundings.

General Patterns
  Outfitter Brown™
From treestand hunts for whitetails to chasing elk through heavy timber, the dark, brownish background in Outfitter Brown gives you the versatility you need for hunting in nearly any terrain. A variation of the original Woodland camo, the shades, shapes and dark background in this pattern allow the human outline to disappear into a variety of settings.

Outfitter Camo™
Outfitter camouflage features muted greens and grays in a design that’s more open than most other camouflage on the market today. The shadowy pattern is excellent for hunting in the open country of the West and among the pine and cedar forests of the high country.
  Seclusion 3D® Outfitter®
Throughout North America and around the world, the terrain and habitat that game animals call home varies in detail and physical attributes as much as the animals themselves. But look closer, and you’ll find, no matter where you hunt, many of the natural colours remain the same. We took those common hues and shades and blended them into this optically balanced universal camouflage. With a pattern that disappears in wide-open country and colouration that blends with blow downs and all wooded terrain, Cabela’s Outfitter is the one camo pattern that will benefit any hunter no matter where he goes a field.
