Weird question maybe: What brand do you preference when you buy your gear and why?

I try and keep all of my gear the same brand so that the prints and everything line up as good as possible.Gonna try and stock up while things go on sale. Seems like Drake is leading the market in my area, I like Banded but their line of stuff isn't very deep.
What other suggestions do you have.

I prefer anything given to me, or what is available for the right price at the right time. Just an FYI- You can find high quality name brand hunting clothes at goodwill in cities for cheap- if you go regularly and look.

IMO- Coordinating patterns is for you, not the birds. They don't care what pattern you're wearing, as long as you're not moving. But if you feel better coordinating, and have the funds to do so, by all means go for it.

The only brand I do shy away from is redhead brand (bass pro gear). I haven't had any in a LONG time (15-20 years?), but in the past their hunting stuff just didn't last as long as other gear, and was overpriced for the quality. May have changed, but that was my experience in the past.

Try a pair of these, some of the better hunting socks I have. And if you put a hole in them, they get replaced for free. https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/redhead-lifetime-guarantee-all-purpose-wool-socks-for-men

I'm also the guy who just wears brown pants cause I'm sitting in the mud most of the time. No ego about what I wear as long as I'm warm and hidden.
I tend to think that in North Texas all of the green in Max 5D is too much. Need a tanner color.

I held out for a really long time on getting Sitka but was given some as a gift for Christmas and absolutely love it. I will definitely be buying more of it.

If your a real duck hunter you gotta get Sitka brother! #Sikforit

John Paul knows what's up! Guys like me and JP don't mess around. Sitka is it!

Not sure who the Flying V is...

$10k is right for that crap. I actually hate the way it looks too.

Mossy Oak Shadow Blade is my pattern of choice.
