Product Review – Cotton Camo

Cotton Camo is a unique pattern that combines the landscape and unique patterns of the cotton field into a camouflage pattern for hunters. I reviewed a pair of pants, short sleeve button up shirt and hat in the Cotton Camo pattern.

Immediately upon opening the packaging I could tell the clothes were well made, with thick cotton and polyester that will withstand numerous washes in scent killer detergent and will hold up in thick, thorny brush like the mesquite trees and cactus I hunt in around South Texas. This is an important aspect in choosing hunting clothes for me because when stalking, hunting or doing other work there is a lot of contact with thick brush and snagging can ruin them instantly. The zippers, buttons and stitching appear to be well made and sturdy. The shirt has pockets and a collar, while the pants have side cargo pockets to carry my gear, side waist adjustments and drawstring leg bottoms for easy adjustments. The hat is a Velcro style to allow for easy adjustments with the logo just the right size and color to not overpower or deter from the camouflage effect.

The pattern was unlike anything else I have ever owned with a 3D effect. The touches of green on the browns, tans and beige breakup make it versatile for various terrain and the cotton seed flowers are beautiful and visually appealing, especially for women. The small ‘flowers’ add just a hint of femininity to the pattern that I really appreciated. Women will enjoy the contrast of a lighter camo pattern to the darker ones currently available especially in terrain like South Texas or in those dry winter months when all the green has disappeared. Although the Cotton Camo logo is located throughout the pattern it isn’t overwhelming and actually took me a while to even notice the few places it was located.

Concealment/Blending Ability:

I tested Cotton Camo’s camouflage ability in South Texas with various landscapes and settings with great results. The pattern seemed to blend well with the greener foliage around the stock tanks and ponds, matched up great with the few bigger trees, and blended exceptionally well with mesquite trees, cactus, and even dirt. In South Texas most of my time is spent low to the ground because the trees are not very tall. With a lot of crouching, looking under brush, and even laying prone to hunt, the Cotton Camo pattern blended very well. I was impressed with its concealment in such sparse trees like the Mesquite trees that provide very little cover. For those areas of hunting with taller trees the pattern will blend very well with the bark of the trees and low brush.

The only downfall I experienced with the Cotton Camo products were the fit and size. Currently they only offer their products in unisex or men’s sizes. I am a small build female who has trouble finding the right fit of hunting clothes in general and sometimes even in women’s sizesit was unfortunate that the product did not fit very well, even though they were size small. I would recommend women’s sizes and fit in the pants, shirts, and even hats to appeal to more women.

Overall Impression/Price:

I would definitely recommend this product to hunters because of its durability, its unique, versatile, and functional pattern, and the reasonable price for a well made product. The prices range from $15 to $50 and are a great value for the money.
