Camouflage Overalls & Baird Night Vision Pocketscope:

“My battlefield usually the streets or some sticky alley, and sometimes my other-wise endearing death’s head outfit is a bit garish for a sudden firefight. It occurred to me that in ‘Nam, we spray painted our old camos to get rid of the sheen. With the advent of disposable but tough paper overalls, what better way to fashion urban camouflage than with spray cans?

When I’m sneaking around someplace and I think the goons might be well equipped — say, with night vision devices — I’m pleased to have this garment in my arsenal. Image intensifiers amplify surface brightness, but they do need a certain contrast against the background to work. This tight little grid pattern seems to confuse most night vision devices. It confused these two: the little guy is a Litton Night Vision Pockotscope, with an alternate lens; the big guy is a Baird Night Vision Binocular — really one image routed two ways. When both were hooked up to a TV camera, they tended not to resolve this pattern.”
