I've been "Kryloning" gear & weapons for years. It works great on both. I dont really worry about patterns on my gear and I think it looks even better as it starts to wear off from use.
OD TT med bag hosed down.
Fuel bottle camoed.
Kifaru EMR dusted for a trip to the desert.
Old Colt 6920 painted.
Ranger Green RACK sprayed and wearing off.
Same RACK freshly sprayed tan.
My M24 binos.
Couple OD RAID pack shots painted tan.
Camoed Nalgene bottle with the measuring hash marks left exposed for use.
Point is that it works! IMHO, YMMV......
