It had to happen

Cabela’s has introduced ColorPhase technology, which allows certain colors in camouflage patterns to change from greens to browns and grays when the temperature drops below 65 degrees. Cabela’s is the first line of camouflage clothing to be printed with rapid-change, temperature-activated dyes.

In mild temperatures, these special dyes allow certain elements in the patterns to show as vivid greens that blend perfectly with early-season foliage. When temperatures drop, the greens change to browns or grays, but spokesman Wes Remmer said body heat, sunlight, moisture and wind can affect the color-change process.

ColorPhase is used exclusively in Cabela’s two new camouflage patterns, Zonz Woodlands and Zonz Western. It is available in a limited numbeer of garments constructed of cotton and cotton-polyester fabrics.
