If that's what you read cob then i guess in your world that's what i wrote although if i had meant to say that believe me, i would have been much more direct.
I guess you've never heard of the tactic of provoking to induce discussion. Never mind, there's stacks of stuff i haven't heard of either. I won't hold it against you.
I'll tell you whats going on syzygy. I'm looking to see if there's any sensible people on here that'd like to offer their objective opinion on the, in my opinion, weird fad where everyone and his dog kits themselves out in camo gear as soon as they're doing anything outside. When i say everyone that is of course an exaggeration but sometimes you need to exaggerate to get a point over. Anyway, instead of that happening what has happened is a few lads have taken it personally (and you'll have to ask them why they're so insecure or touchy over that) and have fallen back on name calling and generally being pratts as a way of making their opinion seem more valid..Yeh..am i right or am i wrong, i don't know..can anyone with a bit of sense tell me without including name calling or other hostile intent?

I personally think it degrades our boys out in the world that are doing a wicked job keeping us safe...it makes me think these guys are hitching a ride on others glory.
Saying that, I know it's not true in all cases or even perhaps the majority but in some it most definitely is.....
I can also understand people wearing camo in they are hunting as that is all about staying out of sight of the prey..but metal detecting!...what prey are you guys hiding from.
Many see us as people who steal our heritage (not concerned about whether that is right or wrong)...wearing camo while detecting in my books only reinforces those opinions and adds to the sleaziness.
Ok, these are just my opinions......Cob and Co are welcome to their opinions...kids that just want to mouth off have no place here..

I thought it looked kinda dumb when carp fishermen started adopting camo as standard and i think it looks even dumber when metal detectorists do it. It looks sleazy as if we're trying to hide away or maybe it's just as simple as camo is gung ho and gung ho is good...i don't know.
personally i wear what is comfortable and thats it. I don't feel the need for any type of army surplus as in my books that is for active soldiers and no one else. It's almost as if some people try to cash in on that hardened soldier look...sad i think.
Army gear is durable..no doubt about that because it has to be. Civvy are not jumping in and out of trenches, doing staggered fire fights or any of the other things army gear is designed to withstand.
Nah....people that wear camo in their everyday pursuits are making a statement has more to do with their frame of mind and not a lot to do with practicality..There's shed loads of other non military clothing anyone could use. At the end of the day all we do is walk on fields and dig holes...your run of the mill brickie has more need for more durable clothing than we do...Protection from the elements and comfort can be covered in a thousand different ways without looking like some wannabe hairy arsed squaddie..
BTW .. jeans are not rubbish...rubbish jeans are rubbish so why buy rubbish jeans and not buy good ones instead ;)
People wear army surplus because it's reasonably cheap, hard wearing, warm, normally has plenty of pockets, if I tear it on barbed wire I'm not going to be as upset as I would be if I was wearing a£100 Beghaus jacket. Yes I can see us all rushing out to buy designer jeans to go detecting in. It's an outdoor persuit, not a fashion show. By the way I'm ex forces, and I couldn't care less if civvies wear camo gear, would never think for one minute anyone wearing it has delusions of being Rambo.

Surely originally the Army/MOD gave approval for civilians to wear camo gear by selling off genuine army surplus in the first place, thus creating the market?
Personally I think camo is like perfume - a little goes a long way!
I cannot see much wrong in wearing it though.

Spot on post Lord, I served 13 years, did Gulf war 1, and now my son is serving in the Royal electrical and mechanical engineers, to infer people are trying to ride on the coat tails of the serving military because the wear camoflage for metal detecting is really quite insulting.

Hmm..i notice your'e all latching onto the ex squady part and ignoring the whole public perception of us nicking our own heritage while wearing camo in an attempt to hide our supposed nefarious intent.
Look to yourselves for why you've chosen to focus on one thing and not the other.
A chip on my shoulder about ex squaddies...chuckles, don't know where you got that from mate but you couldn't be more wrong..Still, i don't suppose there's any chance of changing your mind so i won't bother.
All the other remarks concerning my motives are your opinions and you're welcome to them.
So...no one has anything to add on using camo gear to hide away as if we're doing something we shouldn't be? .. or do you guys just want to carry on ranting.
If you guys want to deny there are people out there that are hitching rides on others glory then that's up to you. I know differently. Like the guy i personaly know that likes to tell everyone he was in the falklands and has even brought 2 para memorabillia to back his bogus claims up..yeh, these sad individuals are out there..but eh..thats just probably my chip talking and has no real substance in the real world..anyone would think i've touched a live wire the way some of you have got all riled up...
Am i taking the piss....for some of you, you bet. To you others i'm just woffling on looking for a bit of spice and pickle on an otherwise dreary evening.
Still think the heavy useage of camo for metal detecting is ridiculous though..That opinion aint going to change anytime soon. Any other opinions i might have stated have a bit more give in them.

I think you've just got a general hang up about people wearing camo and your perception that they're pretending to be something they're not, and as Detectorists wear it this forums given you somewhere to grind you axe. I'm not playing anymore, this is a metal detecting forum not the army rumour service website (where this type of topic is discussed ad infinitum), if you want to bash civvies for being Walts (walter Mitties or fantasists for you non military folks) that's your place not here, on our 'friendly' forum :D

By the way folks, members of the army service website sometimes 'drop' into other forums for a bit of trolling and winding people up, they then have a good hoot posting all the replies, would not be surprised if this is along those lines.

I've never been in the military and have worn army surplus gear because it was cheap and hard wearing, and the contentious stuff mentioned earlier never crossed my mind.

However in recent years I have discovered Go Outdoors! hill walking trousers, Gortex and the theory behind layering clothes, so consequently I'm warmer, dryer and have better freedom of movement and don't need bulky and uncomfortable ex military gear any more.

I am finding it difficult to believe the comment regarding camo wearers are latching on to anybody or anything in the military. ..
As for the public perception of us most think we are a harmless bunch of quirky middle aged or retired harmless lot wandering round fields digging up "stuff"...usually in groups and mostly in broad daylight. The illegal minority have no need for camo pants as they do it in the dark....

I fully agree there Ray, hes just out to get backs up for some reason, perhaps he had a beasting when he was in the Army Cadets for that week? Definately ruined Clints thread with his silly perceptions.

Check out the Army Rumour Service website, enter the word WALT in the search box and you will see in the Arsepedia section that metal detecting doesnt have its own category yet!

If you care to read it you may learn what the people that wear camouflage for a living think of those that wear it for fun.

Caution may be required as the Army sense of humour is very twisted and sometimes very rude.

Gentleman and any ladies...please be aware that I'm watching this thread....

Personally I don't care what you wear,for me I've never seen the attraction to the cami route...yes for me it does feel like your lurking in the bushes and not wanting to be seen...on the other hand I can also see the durability of it in comparrison to other clothing.

I have a tendency of wearing brown karrimor boots, black crag hopper lined trousers and a number of differerent overcoats ...no special underwear etc lololol.

People of every hobby will wear whatever they feel comfortable in,some will want to be ahead of others, some behind and others don't care...I'm the latter I'm afraid..I do whats comfy for me ::g

Please also be aware that this is a forum,whilst all types of debate...on both sides of any subject is good for people's knowledge, I WILL NOT ALLOW ANY ISSUES DEPICTING ANY PERSONAL CONFLICT,..

If you read this and decide that rather than debate,you would rather get one up on someone..this is not the place for you, and you won't last long here either.....we run a fair site,with fair debate And conversation...as I hope you will see this as too....

Any further info regarding my post then pleas feel free to contact me, also feel free to wear camo gear, a tutu or jeans..I don't really care, nor does 99% of this forum.

As already said, if you wish to have a serious discussion regarding what you like to wear whilst detecting, then carry on..if not you know where to go
