I have never been a big fan of the Mitchell camo but, I like the shelter half for sure! I have been keeping my eyes open for one as well.

It’s Mitchell pattern camouflage. Used in the Vietnam War

I've never met anyone that can explain to me the origin of the term "Mitchell pattern". It seems that someone pulled this terminology out of their 6 o'clock and everyone bought into it. lol

The origin of the term has come to light very recently actually. Look up Melton Mitchell and his work in developing camouflage patterns for the military

 

Here's a short video uploaded Sep 30 2019. So very recent.
