Harvest Moon Camouflage from Moon Shine Camo is named after the phenomenon when the full moon appears nearest to the autumnal equinox on respective hemispheres of the Earth. The next full moon following the harvest moon is appropriately called the "Hunter's Moon".
How fitting that the design for Harvest Moon is void of any color and calls to mind the darkness of night, where shadow and moonlight collide to create something beautiful. That's one of the reasons Harvest Moon makes such a great pattern for hunters and hunting enthusiasts alike. Moon Shine Camo describes the pattern in the following:
Words that come to mind with this pattern are sniper, stealth, and covert. Words that come to mind with this attitude are aggressive, assertive, and stern. Far from your typical camo, this pattern is designed for the varmints we hunt at night, and besides that, it is a noble form of expression.
Harvest Moon accomplishes what few other camouflage patterns can; contain great design and breakup without any color.
Most camouflage patterns rely on color and tone to be effective camouflage, but Harvest Moon boldly disregards color in favor of great design and breakup. There is strong contrast between the black silhouettes of the trees and the white branches and foliage emerging into the foreground. All the while, the background contains cloudy or foggy greys, the required neutral tones to keep the blacks and white at bay.
Harvest Moon is not just about camouflage, but attitude. It's a design only the bold would dare use on their firearms and gear. But the risk is not without reward as this particular pattern looks fierce and draw attention, in the best ways. There may be "boy" and "girl" camo on the market, but Harvest Moon is neither and both at the same time. Because of this, Harvest Moon can dominate the hunting scene with little competition.
