TUATARA® CAMO

All camouflage is designed to make you hard to
see. But that’s just the table stakes in the world of
hunting.

The elite hunter is searching for far more. More
than just an edge, more than getting close. It’s
the ability to have total control over a situation. So
you can challenge every aspect of a hunt, take time,
reflect, respect and choose. Tuatara® Camo puts you
in a zone like no other and takes you closer to your
prey than ever before. Closer than you ever dared.
Become one with the land. Take your time and choose
your next move. Raise the bar, challenge old
traditions, embrace your primal instincts and rewrite
every definition of the word ‘stealth’.

Tuatara® Camo. Hunting as nature intended.

DEFY THE ODDS

If you can defy the odds and survive for over
200 million years, you must be doing
something right. In the unforgiving animal
kingdom, natural camouflage is what separates
the hunters from the hunted, and the survivors
from the extinct. New Zealand’s native Tuatara
is one of the greatest survival stories on earth.
It has survived from the Jurassic period against
all odds, using its natural camouflage to evade
predators and hunt its own prey.

Wearing Tuatara® Camo, you become one with
nature. A shadow in the forests. A rock on the
mountain face. The apex predator. The master
of hunting undetected.

BEHIND THE CAMO

Tuatara® Camo takes hunting to the next level. We’ve
redefined what it means to hunt undetected with four key
technical design elements that will confuse the animal eye
and enable you to become one with your hunting domain.

EDGE EXTINCTION

Tuatara® Camo utilises disruptive
colour patterns that effectively break
up your outline, so your silhouette
vanishes, leaving nothing for animals
to pick up.

DEPTH DEFIANCE

Tuatara® Camo creates a 3D like
effect where it challenges depth
perception. With 11 layers of intricate
design patterns, these combine to give
a much deeper depth of field,
confusing the animal eye and
misrepresenting your very presence.

COLOUR FUSION

The different colours in Tuatara®
Camo match and draw out the
natural colours around you. Stand
next to the green of a fern and the
colours will fuse to blend you in.

360 SCALE TECH DESIGN

Some camo use unnatural combinations
of patterns. Tuatara® Camo uses a
natural blend of peaks, scales and
contours. These serve as visual disruptions,
so whether you are standing, crouching,
crawling or lying, it’s hard for your
target to get any sense of where you
begin or end.

TUATARA® CAMO - Technical Patterns

Just as the Tuatara has adapted to an ever-changing
environment, we’ve adapted Tuatara® Camo in technical
patterns to match your chosen environment.

TUATARA® CAMO FOREST

TUATARA® CAMO ALPINE

TUATARA® CAMO URBAN

TUATARA® CAMO FOREST

With 11 layers of forest colours, shades,
light patterns and deep contrasts, the trees
suck you in, the bush envelops you and the
earth swallows you up. You are shadow and
stealth. A lethal mystery. TCF is designed
for hunting when close proximity, patience
and a cloak of invisibility is paramount.

TUATARA® CAMO ALPINE

In the harsh alpine environment, colours
appear deceptively flatter where the high
and exposed terrains embody a scorched
earthy palate of lichens, moss, grasses
and rocks. This is where TCA will break
up your edge and you’ll become the dusty
landscape, the slight shadow in the wind,
unhesitating, untroubled, patiently awaiting
your next move.

TUATARA® CAMO URBAN

Disruptive in the field. Distinctive in your
town. This is your pattern, wear it with
pride and passion. With as much function
as it embodies style, it works as hard on
the land as it does in the urban jungle. TCU
marks you out. A hunter with field craft. A
wolf amongst sheep.

Just like how the Tuatara has survived and evolved over the past 200
million years, evolving a new camo that redefines the meaning of stealth
is no mean task. Rather than rushing a camouflage pattern, we’ve
maintained our dedication to quality, innovation and meticulous detail
to ensure that our industry leading research, design, manufacturing and
testing standards have been met.

Over the past two years, we’ve been testing and refining our patterns out
in the wild with our elite test team. Keeping Tuatara Camo a secret hasn’t
been easy, yet our team have successfully put it through its paces and have
been getting the results to prove it. We cannot wait to share with you their
stories.

ROY SLOAN

“those old Blue Mountain bush fallow are so smart, I think
they can see you getting out of bed in the morning. this
past year I have been trialling the Tuatara camo, and I reckon
it has given me those few extra seconds needed to get the
drop on them, as I’ve been seeing them more than ever.”

Roy Sloan. Fiordland, NZ

KADIN WILLIS

Master bow hunter, Kadin Willis is out hunting every
weekend. He sees it as a way to escape the concrete
jungle and be in the 'zone' with just nature and his
bow. It also provides the opportunity to place food
on the table for his family. Since testing out the new
Tautara® Camo patterns, Kadin has been in as close
as four yards on Tahr in the Southern Alps. His gear
needs to be extremely tough, silent, lightweight and
reliable, which is why he chooses Tuatara® Camo to
give him the edge.

ANTO HALL

Anto is a passionate hunter and fisherman who spends
most of his time in the mountains and valleys
surrounding his home town. With access to stunning
Rainbow and Brown trout fishing, and a wide variety
of big game animals at his doorstep, Anto is constantly
putting our gear to the test in the rugged an
mountainous apline country of the deep south. Tuatara®
Camo Alpine range has become Anto's new favourite
weapon of choice.

SARAH MACDONALD

Born and rasied in the cold depths of the South Island,
Sarah's passion for the outdoors comes from a
childhood out following in Dad's footsteps - hunting,
fishing and exploring the hills around Otago. With a
clothing design background, Sarah heads up the product
design at Stoney Creek and spends most of her weekends
out in the wild, putting our purpose-built designs and
technical fabrics to the test.

BRENT McCONNELL

CEO of Stoney Creek, Brent has years of experience
hunting and within the outdoor clothing industry. Four
years ago Brent put together a team of experts in all
fields, to help him create a camouflage that would give
elite hunters, like himself, the edge. Two years later, after
receiving the first prototype, Brent has been testing the
Tuatara® Camo patterns in the New Zealand wildness for
the last two years, and the results have been incredible.

SIMON WARD

When it comes to using technical gear, they don't come
more discerning than Simon. With a science degree
background, he has a meticulous eye for detail and
demands quality, performance and innovation that gives
him the upper hand when out chasing big game with his
across the country. Simon's go to garments are his Fast
Hunt shirt and trousers, in the new Tuatara® Camo Forest
pattern. Which has helped him deceive plenty of Reds, Sika
and Pigs during the past two seasons of testing out in the
wild.

JULIAN DANBY

Hunting is about testing the mind and body against
the elements and the elusive quarry. With a need to
push the limits in all weather conditions, for Julian,
the Tuatara® Camo range comes into this equation.
It's the persistence and patient that he believes is the
difference between failure and success when hunting.
When stalking the North Island's elusive Sika and Rusa
Deer, Julian trusts the new Tuatara® Camo Forest
pattern to conceal his presence.

ELLA McCONNELL

Hunting is in Ella's blood. As the fourth generation of
hunter in her family it's not surprising that she's grown
up with an unquenchable passion for hunting. Perfecting
her stalking techniques throughout the year, Ella eagerly
awaits the roar to chase red stags across the country.
Always one to see each hunting experience as an
opportunity to learn, challenge her skills and pursue an
ever-expanding hunting bucket list, she backs her
Tuatara® Camo to give her the edge, and has the results
to prove it.

ROY SLOAN

Having hunted Wapiti deer in Fiordland for 30+ years,
and more than 25 years chasing Whitetail in Steward
Island, Roy knows a thing or two when it comes to
having gear that performs in the steepest, wettest and
coldest hunting environments in the country. Roy
works extremely closely with out team of technical
design experts, to continue our dedication towards
building purpose-built hunting gear, specifically
designed to perform in Fiordland's most extreme,
rugged and remote environments.
