depends on what your looking at...nock..pin..fletching etc.

i like neon green pin..and noclk...but all white fletch and wrap.
but i like zebra stripe white fletch and wrap to break up the pattern
deer are said to be color blind ( but not proven) but they can pick up and will on anything solid..so i like aything that breaks it up.

like a neon green-tiger stripe wrap would be cool and stand out in low light and you think they would..but deer wont see it.

stay away from red, just like in water, red is one of the first colors to dissapear as light begins to fade....its also, one of the last colors to appear as Dawn starts to light up the sky.......

Loops, I've used flo orange and flo green. I think I see the green better. White and also flo yellow should work good too.

There's a few on this page Smokes.
If you were varmint hunting after dark I think one of the stabalizer flashlights would be the ticket. I tried the hat one but it's too bright on your sight but not bright enough all the way to the target. Not to mention a PIA to get the angle of your hat just right.

Gander Mountain has them in a few different colors and camo patterns.

Why not get one of the 5 LED clip on's that cplit to the top or bottom of any hat that has a bill. They are brighter and less expensive than a hat that has the lights in it. I think I paid about $8 or $9 for mine.

In my opinion if its to dark for me to see my loop while out hunting then its probably past legal shooting time anyway(jmo)

Mabey whatever he's after is legal to take after dark. But he did mention low light. No doubt a light or flo colored loop is easier to see in your perrifial (sp)vision, so as to keep an eye on the important things. The hat/light could be just for getting to and from.
