We have come along way from the days of wiping mud on our faces and wearing twigs in our hair. Now we have digitized transitional camo patterns that work extremely well to camo fashion such as bright pink camo motif rifles and camouflaged prom dresses. You would think that military camo would have an equal amount of history, however; the art of camouflage for wartime has a more modern history. One such solid color has found to be an excellent transitional camo in urban settings. Not too dark and not too light, 5.11 Tactical has developed a shade of gray they call Storm Grey that has proven itself to blend better in urban and naval environments.

Those volunteers and first responders didn’t care if you had come from the wrong side of the tracks, who you went home to at night or the color of your skin. We were all just human beings that day.
