"New Realtree Xtra and Xtra Green truly live up to their names, giving hunters extra effectiveness in the field," said Jordan. "All throughout the development process, we focused on creating incredible depth, visual confusion and 3D effects in the pattern mid-grounds and backgrounds while still retaining total sharpness and detail in the foreground elements. The result is as close to nature as we've ever gotten."
Realtree's proprietary printing technology allows printers to layer sharp foreground elements over a progressively ghosted mid-ground to an incredibly soft background – all combined in a multidirectional way to create visual confusion. This makes new Xtra and Xtra Green the most versatile camo patterns ever.
In addition, the subtle shadows, highlights and textures in these new patterns blend and mimic more varied terrain and lighting conditions than ever before, allowing both patterns to be used across a wider range of habitat.
New Xtra and Xtra Green look great with 12 warm, natural colors that blend with an incredible variety of natural settings. The patterns offer all the key elements of the outdoors – tree trunks, large and small limbs, a variety of leaf types and colors, large open areas, and extreme contrast from light to dark.
While both Realtree Xtra and Xtra Green work exceptionally well year-round, hunters may find one preferable over the other in certain areas or as the seasons change. As a general rule, Realtree Xtra Green works best from fall's early bow, muzzleloader and gun seasons right through the leaf change, and then from mid to late spring. In some situations, hunters may want to use both patterns at the same time to better disrupt their outline.
