Green-based Camo

Hi guys,
I recently got a Tactical Vest to compliment my solid OD combats. However, I find that OD really doesn't camouflage at all, even in dense foliage, like I expected (Not that I play in any dense foliage anyhow, considering how dry it is here in Calgary). I was wondering if there was any kind of Woodland or green-based camo that would go well with my OD TacVest. I'm not spending the money to buy a new vest, though (preferably), only the BDUs. I also prefer digital-type camo, although it doesn't have to be digital.

Any recommendations on a scheme?
All help is appreciated! Thanks!

The US military issued OD kit with US Woodland BDU's (I'm thinking LC2 pistol belts and ALICE gear) so that would be your closest bet.

I read somewhere that CADPAT is 40% more effective than OD. I figure I just need something that breaks up the pattern.

I wear whatever I have handy. I wore a DPM rig on ACU (UCP) last week in a skirmish.
I have an ACU rig bit it's for a pistol and I was fielding an M4.

Either woodland digi (a cheap knockoff of marpat) or actual marpat looks good with OD and cadpat looks great with OD. Infact Multicam looks good with OD.

There's tons and tons of "green" patterns. The most widely available:

-CADPAT
-MARPAT
-Multicam
-British DPU
-UCP (Not very effective)

You can get into more exotic patterns if you'd like to have something different from the crowd. Try looking into European patterns. My favorite sets I have are Russian KLMK Berezka and Swedish M90, both very effective and look awesome.

Have you seen the Mexican camo?

Its basically a digitalish US Woodland. I'll post a pick later.

Marpat I'd best with od
Acu/ucp is only good with foliage green or ucp

Multicam works really well with OD, however multicam is considered a tan camo. Woodland or British DPM are both safe bets. Woodland is very easy to obtain, DPM is sorta easy to find. Anything like AOR2 or A-Tacs FG is not readily available at all yet. And honestly A-Tacs flops in most environments badly. It will go with MarPat, but it's not a green based camp at all. I'd say woodland is your safest choice. Green based, very easy to find, works well.

But thanks for all the info guys, I'll look into some Woodland MARPAT or British camo.

Thanks again!

Edit: Do you know if France has any Green-based derivatives? Purely because I run with a FAMAS.

Sorry for the double-post, but this technically isn't related to my previous post.

I found two MARPAT schemes.
This: https://www.sealsactiongear.com/cata...p?idProduct=34

And This: https://www.sealsactiongear.com/cata...?idProduct=988

(This is a surplus store, not an Airsoft Retailer, so no need to go about removing links again)

Which would work better with my OD vest? One looks brown-based, and the other, tan-based.

confuzzlement.

Both those MARPATs are the "same". It's just down to lighting and colour correction in the photos.

Go to a few more games. Check out the guys you can't see and look at what camo they are wearing in your local area.

That MARPAT seems popular with some of the Calgary players that I've met in B.C. I don't know if they were dressed for home or away though.
