Top 5 Whitetail Deer Hunting Camo Gear Picks
The Gear Needs of a Whitetail Deer Hunter
From Alberta to Mexico, Oregon to Maine, and throughout the heart of the Midwest, whitetail deer and all its sub-species span most of North America. Whether you’re hunting in a tree stand, ground blind, making a drive, still hunting, or doing a spot-and-stalk, our versatile layering system will match your style of hunting.
Regardless of species, KUIU’s approach to hunting gear centers around a technical layering system, and whitetail deer is no exception. The clothing layering system enhances your performance in the field by scaling your insulation up or down during high and low-level activity. Moreover, hunts often bring an ever-changing climate.
Our layering system is built in three parts: Next-to-skin base layers, mid-layer insulation, and outer-layer protection that allows you to adapt to any style of whitetail hunting. It’s an entire system built to complement how you hunt and withstand the elements you’re faced with.
For most whitetail hunting applications, clothes that are warm and quiet are a top priority. Here are our customers' top-five best whitetail camo products that will keep you comfortable and undetected.
Developed from the ground-up for silent stationary situations, the KUIU Proximity features patent-pending removable hood, internal pocket attachments, heat pack pouches, safety harness port, and stretch gasket cuffs combine for all-day comfort and complete concealment.

- DWR Coated for water-resistance
- Anti-Odor to remain undetected

Whitetail hunting-focused features include a layered safety harness port, magnetic quiet-closure hand pockets with interior heat pack/hand warmer pockets, and dual chest pockets with accessory loops for secure rangefinder attachment. For added stealth and silence, all zippers feature quiet sliders, while the wrist cuffs leverage a tapered stretch opening instead of using a hook-and-loop closure system.
Leveraging Polartec® Technology, Wind Pro is engineered with a compact knit surface structure for up to 4x greater wind resistance than regular synthetic fleece, while remaining 85% as breathable. This added protection deflects the elements while still maintaining soft comfort and breathability. Thermal air pockets retain the warmth needed from an insulation layer, all without the use of a laminated membrane. DWR treated, Wind Pro is dependable and versatile in inclement weather conditions.

For the early season, while the vegetation is green, Verde is a top choice for whitetail deer camo. Verde is also ideal in evergreen environments year-round.
Valo is the top choice in hardwood applications after the colors have changed and the vegetation has died off or gone dormant.
Vias is also a proven choice for the late season, when grey vegetation and terrain dominate the landscape.
KUIU dark-color solids are ideal to minimize detection for hunting from the shadows of an enclosed blind.
