Left is a surplus Woodland BDU jacket, middle is the Tiger Stripe, and Multicam is on the left. I live in a pine forest, and these pictures were taken about an hour before sundown in mid spring. This is by no means a professional test, but for the casual airsofter it will serve just fine. At five feet, the Tiger Stripe is the least noticeable of the bunch.
A few more paces back, the same is true. The woodland pattern works very well in this area. The tan in it seems to be out of place during the spring, but as a more all-season pattern it works well. Looking at these pictures after the fact, it seems like I should use more than one test location for a more legitimate study. The tiger stripe has the same coloration as the woodland BDUs, however the tan is only used sparingly, to contrast the black stripes. This dark pattern fits wonderfully with the dark tree behind it. The multicam appears out of place. From the end of summer to the winter, it would blend nicely with the dead foliage.
