Its nice, but you should add some burlap to the shoulders/neck to break it in better. You also should give it a mudbath. ;)

It looks alright but I'd add more to the top and vary the colour more, depending on your terrain of course.

The design however is great, more maneuverable AND detachable. You are giving me ideas for my next ghillie suit next summer. Karma for you, thanks.

Cheers man, it's built of the webtex concealment vest, the only problem with me being 6ft it doesn't cover my ankles so I need to make some leg pieces for it. I'm thinking bit's of fabric I can fasten round them kinda like gaiters.

Looks good, but I have to agree that it needs more burlap. And I feel you with the six foot thing. Im six foot five and so I really cant do anything but custom build all my ghillies. Which to be honest suits me just fine ;).

Everyone should make their own ghillie. ;)

Yes everyone should make their own ghillie (as I keep telling my friends as they insist on buying them from somewhere else!)

The dark patches of green you can see are the vests elastic loops for attaching veg. I originally attached all of my jute to these and then decided that it didn't cover it properly. Plus with the loops being so thick the jute didn't sit right and it was far to thick. So I put jute loops in pretty randomly until I had a light covering all over. There are a couple of patches where jute has come unattached when it was being dragged through the mud so I need to reattach these loops but with better knots.

I will add a spattering of burlap strips to the shoulder/head region and then see about adding in some dyed pieces as well. I have been looking into gaiters and buying a cheap set I don't think will work as they're all plastic materials and I'm not prepared to spend more than

Sorry to double post, I added some burlap strips to the shoulders the other night and thought I'd share with you a couple of new photos. I'm not sure if there is enough, but I feel like I don't want to add anymore either.

I am aware that it needs dragging through the mud again to make the new burlap match though ;)

As for colour, I'm going to add my colour with veg as most of my site is browns and light browns with smatterings o green!

Looking good! Remember to put a lot of veg on the shoulders, head and arms, this is (hopefully) what the enemy is going to see of you, without realising its you of course.

Now it's much better, but I would prefer it a bit shorter... So it won't catch on small branches and small bushes!

Right-o, cheers for the tips guys! I'm looking forward to actually taking this out and field testing it soon, I have time off next week so maybe I'll get a chance to then.

Ghillie cloak

Well, I finally got to take my ghillie out today and use it in the field. Unfortunately my gun packed in on my go I didn't get to use something with a wrap on it so my hide was spoiled to a degree! On the other hand, I had a couple of guys come up to me and say that spotting me was a nightmare and that my ghillie worked really well in the long/dead grass that surrounds our local site :)

Also, I think it established that it's scary in dark corridors too! (assault sniper, awwwayyyy!)

Stalking is fun, my ghillie is comfortable and easy to use, yeah I nearly fell flat on my face when I trod on myself but I still think the length is right. I just need to be more careful!

Next, to build myself some gaiters to cover the bottom of my legs and boots.

Glad to hear it worked out for you. I remember one of my first games in a ghillie; I had a blast!
