For decades, Realtree Xtra was the flagship camouflage pattern for Bill Jordan's line of Realtree Camo. While not his first design, Xtra was the go-to choice because of how versatile it was. The user could wear Xtra during the Fall, Winter, and early Spring. "The Xtra in Realtree Xtra stands for extra effectiveness in the field." There was no need to change up your apparel and gear for every hunting season.
Like most sticks and leaves camo, Realtree Xtra uses the tried and true layered approach, featuring sharp details in the foreground, a semi-transparent mid-level foliage, and a soft, blurred background. The artwork contains a blend of dense tree texture consisting of overlapping limbs and leaves with open areas of color tones to give a varied look to your gear and apparel.
Realtree Camo has been designing camouflage since 1986 and they have definitely made a name for themselves. Their antler logo can be frequently spotted in a window decal on the back window of a 4x4. Xtra was such a hit that they even used it as the foundation for their Xtra Colors Series, which offers a variety of different background tones to match the personality of any wearer.
