In a post-SHTF world, the last thing you want to do is draw attention to yourself. Hungry, desperate people will be everywhere, so if you’re wearing nice clean clothes and carrying a bag full of supplies, then you may as well paint a target on your chest. To reduce your chances of being attacked, you should wear clothes that help you blend in. That way muggers won’t notice you until they’re fairly close, and it will be easier for you to slip away if they do.
The Prepper Journal published a great article on this topic. It’s by an ex-British Army soldier named Orlando Wilson. He writes, “It makes me laugh when I see a lot of SWAT Teams and PSD guys wearing Tactical Black and other colors that look cool but do nothing but make them stand out. In reality black is one of the worst colors to wear. Ask yourself, what is black in nature? Look around you and what in your surrounding’s are black? I expect very little… In urban areas most walls are white, gray or cream… Light colors! The colors you wear should blend in with your background whether its day or night.
“At night dark colors stand out, especially when moving past light backgrounds and in urban areas most backgrounds are light colors. Even in rural dry areas when moving through low bush and fields the silhouettes of people in dark colors are easy to see at a distance.” Follow the link below to read the rest.
