View Full Version : A Camo Question?

03-06-2003, 09:25 PM
As a guide I am always looking for a great new camo. The camo I would like to ask you al about is the KING of the Mountain line. The camo is suposed to be wool, waterproof, wind proof, and warm. So I was wondering has anyone used this brand and what sort of pattern is it in. Also where might I find it and price?

It looks like a subline of Sleeping Indian products.

The camo patterns look to be grey or brown woodland derivatives.

If I'm not mistaken, Sleeping Indian Designs branched off from King. Try the KOMS (http://www.kingofthemountain.com/) homepage as well as Backcountry, Inc. (http://www.backcountryinc.com/shopping/htm/shopwool.htm) They both look like high-quality gear.

The Sleeping Indian wool clothing is made by the same person that designed the King of the Mountain clothing. His name is Ted Ranck and he knows wool better than the sheep that wear it. He separated with his partner to start up Sleeping Indian. I belive that he also has a degree in art as well, so he knows a bit on how to design patterns to fool the eye. This Sleeping Indian wool is by far a better product than the King wool. I have had alot of wool hunting clothes in my possesion at one time or another and the Sleeping Indian is hands down the best of them all. Sleeping Indian was the softest to the skin, has the tightest knit, the brown pattern is made up of colors that blend in just like deer do. The clothes are EXPENSIVE, so DO NOT WAS THEM IN A MACHINE as King recommends that you do with theirs. The wool clothes are also heavy, compared to synthetic clothes(especially when you've been in a rain storm w/o a poncho). Just give Ted a call and make sure that you have some time to talk because he will give you the straight scoop on wool and the proper way to layer under garments so that you can maximize the insulating properties of the wool for different climates. I belive that the link was posted earlier <a href="http://www.woolcamo.com/" target="_blank">http://www.woolcamo.com/ (http://www.woolcamo.com/)</a> . If you want King wool, Ed at BackCountry is a straight shooter as well as a hunter himself and he uses what he sells and you wont go wrong if you buy from him. <a href="http://www.backcountry.com/" target="_blank">http://www.backcountry.com/ (http://www.backcountry.com/)</a> That's my 2 cents worth and then some.

No wool is waterproof, unless you have a liner that is. Also, http://www.graywolfwoolens.com/ is a much better product in the best cam oout there
