Nice!

I wonder how well this would work in SW Flordia though.

This is the pattern I'm actually developing, I just received the fabric samples from the factory, check out the FEAR Camo Facebook page to see how it was developed...

I checked the page, and you have your operation nicely under way.
By the way, in practical thinking, have you considered the wehrmacht/russian style with cheap, light, camoed overalls? Meaning, you can have any sort of BDU underneath, but the primary camo application would be a light jacket/pants combo, which can be easily switched in different environments. The most-used example being modern snow camo.

For some reason it only linked half of the URL... but I guess any one interested could google it.

Yeah, I have thought about light weight mesh style one-piece cover-all type suits, what I had in mind was to provide a temporary solution so it could be stowed in a pouch and donned and doffed as the environments changed, so a woodland uniform would be complimented by a snow cover-all (looks like we're on the same page...).

But that is for future developments, see how thing play out...

If the US army woulda taken that approach with afghanistan, they might have saved millions of dollars (as afghanistan is arid/semi-arid with some spots of good old green)!
Basic uniform woulda been woodland, or maybe the 6-color desert, and the stowed mesh camo woulda been an appropriate second pattern.

But the mesh overalls have one good advantage when compared to regular BDUs: they're baggy. Combine that with a good disruptive pattern, and you break up the human form really well.

Roger that! I just posted 2 more images to illustrate why I have designed 2 Multi-environmental patterns to help address the diverse terrain in Afghanistan.

And couldn't one basically wear some stuff under the mesh suit? Like certain pouches (access slits necessary for such), kneeguards, some protective items (such as a plain flackjacket). Wouldn't such increase the camouflage "value" of a soldier?

Oh, that reminds me. I'd like your input as to how we should proceed with the camo testing project. Comment here, if you have any insight to share.

Yeah, the suit would go over all of the regular gear with slits and access panels. Obviously the wear and tear on the contact points like elbows and knees would would mean that the suit would have to be semi-disposable, ie. only good for a few short 1-2 day missions before needing to be replaced so it would have to be very cheap to produce...

I'm just going to take a look at the testing project now.
