About Oilfield Camo
In these times when a large portion of the population has adopted a negative view of the oil and gas industry, Oilfield Camo Founder Mark Lipari hoped to clear up these misconceptions. He wants to make the public aware that the oil and gas industry has given much more to our environment, wildlife habitat conservation research and maintenance than it will ever take away. In designing the Oilfield Camo pattern, Lipari considered where people hunt. Drawing influence from his South Louisiana surroundings, he started with a color scheme that would be effective in hardwood, marsh, or any other surroundings. Rather than using bark, branches, or leaf patterns to break up the hunter's silhouette, Lipari chose oilfield icons such as rigs, platforms, crewboats, liftboats, helicopters, and other identifiable images to build a pattern that is both incredibly effective and meaningful as well. So whether you are hunting bucks in a hardwood bottom, chasing ducks through the Louisiana swamps, or boarding a crew boat on your way offshore, Oilfield Camo is YOUR pattern. Oilfield Camo. It's not just a pattern... It's a way of life!
