If you are relying on clothing for camouflage you are already off base. Any camo chosen should be made up from materials that are indigenous to the environment. Camo is much more than clothing, it is being one with your environment. Smell ,shine, texture, movement, all will give you away. Color is really less important than most people think. I hunt in khakis and a flannel shirt, with great success. It really has more to do with how well you fit into where you are.
In any survival type situation camouflage should really be of little concern. We have been conditioned to believe that we must have it in order o blend in. It is just another lie from marketers trying to separate you from your money.
The Apache scout always wore a red headband indicating his position. It was a badge of honor. They are still considered to be some of the best guerrilla fighters in the world, camouflage was part of their training. I can hide in the desert with a fluorescent blanket. It is not what you have, it is how you us it.
