I agree that the BDUs are wonderful for many activities. However, they
have one serious drawback in that the current camouflage designs make it
harder to see (and properly identify) wearers. When I have a group of
scouts hiking through the woods, I want them to be visible, not hidden.
On the other hand, Hunter Orange isn't appropriate either. Perhaps
someone will come up with gear that blends "with" rather than "into"
