All camouflage is designed to make you hard to see. But that’s just the table stakes in the world of hunting. The elite hunter is searching for far more. More than just an edge, more than getting close. It’s the ability to have total control over a situation. So you can challenge every aspect of a hunt, take time, reflect, respect and choose. Tuatara® Camo puts you in a zone like no other and takes you closer to your prey than ever before. Closer than you ever dared. Become one with the land. Take your time and choose your next move. Raise the bar, challenge old traditions, embrace your primal instincts and rewrite every definition of the word ‘stealth’.
WHAT IS THE TUATARA?
WHAT IS THE TUATARA?
If you can defy the odds and survive for over 200 million years, you must be doing something right.
In the unforgiving animal kingdom, natural camouflage is what separates the hunters from the hunted, and the survivors from the extinct. New Zealand’s native Tuatara is one of the greatest survival stories on earth. It has survived from the Jurassic period against all odds, using its natural camouflage to evade predators and hunt its own prey.
At Stoney Creek, we were inspired by this living dinosaur and spent four years working with experts to develop a technical camouflage pattern that embraces the natural stealth ability of this mysterious creature.
Wearing Tuatara® Camo, you become one with nature. A shadow in the forests. A rock on the mountain face. The apex predator. The master of hunting undetected.
TECHNICAL DESIGN ELEMENTS
TUATARA® CAMO FOREST With 11 layers of forest colours, shades, light patterns and deep contrasts, the trees suck you in, the bush envelops you and the earth swallows you up. You are shadow and stealth. A lethal mystery. TCF is designed for hunting when close proximity, patience and a cloak of invisibility is paramount.
TUATARA® CAMO ALPINE In the harsh alpine environment, colours appear deceptively flatter where the high and exposed terrains embody a scorched earthy palate of lichens, moss, grasses and rocks. This is where TCA will break up your edge and you’ll become the dusty landscape, the slight shadow in the wind, unhesitating, untroubled, patiently awaiting your next move.
