What's the best flat black exterior paint either paint on or spray that will withstand the test of time out in the deer woods?

Whatever's on sale?


No, seriously, I always seem to wind up with Rustoleum for some reason, in spray paint. I think. Once you get in the paint aisle you realize you don't have that many choices in flat black exterior anyway (or any flat exterior that you'd use for hunting/camo).

I read the labels and get the least fancy, easiest to apply. Apparently I haven't been wrong yet, since everything from cargo racks to treestands seems to be holding up.

I wouldn't know about regular paint.

+1 on the Rustoleum. Seems to hold up for treestands.
