American waterfowl company Rig’Em Right have paved the way using new camouflage technology.

They have introduced GORE™ Optifade™ Concealment to Europe this year, in both Waterfowl Marsh and Timber varieties. The GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl Marsh and Timber patterns take into account how ducks, geese and other waterfowl see. Rather than mimicking the surroundings, the new technology makes the hunter seem like ‘nothing’ to the animals. The Marsh Optifade is lighter in colour. It’s great for settings like stubbly fields or areas with a lighter backdrop. The Timber is a darker camouflage, offering better cover in darker backdrops, as well as areas which may well end up muddier than others. Whichever you choose, the technology is fantastic to hide your accessories and blinds, etc whilst you are hunting.

Science Behind It

Waterfowl have a wide, almost panoramic view of the world around them. They are particularly sensitive to colour in the environment, as well as continuity with their surroundings. The micropattern used on the waterfowl concealment is critically important and is as detailed as possible to confuse bird vision.

Wildfowling is carried out in a high contrast environment; you have the light from the horizon or reflected on the water, along with darker areas in the rushes and mud. Light through the rushes or any gaps will create concentrated light spots. The waterfowl patterns are therefore designed to be high in contrast alongside the environment. It also includes elements which are darker and lighter to be consistent.

For the tough waterfowlers, all of the accessories featuring the Optifade design are as tough as ever and perfect even for the toughest, harshest hunting conditions.

Unlike many brands out there, Rig’Em Right test their products in every possible situation and location to ensure that the end user is getting the best product physically possible to use whilst hunting. The new GORE Optifade has been developed and tested alongside many hunters along the way, and has proven time and again to be the ideal addition to a camouflage layout. Adding new technology and being the leaders in their field is what sets Rig’Em Right apart from many other companies out there claiming to know what is best.

Rig’Em Right use the new Optifade on their layout blinds, as well as some of their hunting bags. It is offered as an option to those who want to try something different from the more traditional camouflage equipment out there on the market. Many of Rig’Em Right’s products boast an easy and quick set up, and their Optifade range is no different.
