Someone posted a camo helmet some months back, in there description they called it Atlantik Wall Camo, i seem to remember it was pictured on top of a stone wall. Personally that was one of the best looking camo's i had seen in a long time.

Default Concrete camo

Here is a shot of the one you are talking about. It is owned by Morte Homme in Norway. He has a nice shot of it on some era concrete that shows how well it blends in.

Default My favorite camo

I found this one in 2008 in a small, out of the way mountain village in Norway. 100% original concrete spray camo. My favorite helmet! Same substance used as on the concrete camo above. See how effective the camo pattern is on this one! There are at least three other helmets of this same general pattern in collections in Norway, for doubters out there. All M35 LW.

Hi Narvik, these are not the helmets I was referring to, but very nice all the same. The one i remember had a colour scheme of light and dark greys and it blended so well with the wall it was sitting.

Personally I've been being so curious about this helmet.Honestly I am not a fan of this type of vibrant sprayed camo with this poured on stripes.Looks a fiction fake but I would like to see some good picture at last.

I'll have to say all kind of field applied stuff is great. For ex. BBstraps, rubberband, wire and netting.

When it comes to more unusual camos I concur and say that Narviks concrete camo is one VERY interresting piece! I'm not a camo expert, but I've never seen anything come close to that one. I love it!

Cheers
