Attaching the Ghillie to a BDU?

Hi folks! Convenience question here.

I have a BDU I use for jungle games, and a separate Ghillie I wear on top of it. It's a poncho type if I'm not mistaken: jutes attached to a netting and only covers the sleeves, head, and back when worn.

My question is it better in terms of

1) cleaning
2) convenience when crawling
3) Ghillie wear and tear

if I attach it to my BDU by sewing/gluing it, or is it better if I just keep using them separately?

I'd appreciate all your insights.

Thanks guys!

Well, technically, your ghillie is a cape, not a poncho, but that is inconsequential. Really, I think it should be kept separate. Mainly, this is so that you can be on whatever team you want to at larger events that use camo to determine team. However, should the urge to simply run around screaming while waving a 45rps M4 in the general direction of your enemy, you will not be confined to a hot and stuffy ghillie suit.

I like having my ghillie on my BDU

1) I never clean my ghillie. Sure, I probably have a self-sustaining environment growing in it, but whatever.

2) super for crawling, having the ghillie part only on the back and sides makes it great for crawling.

3) wear and tear- more durable on the ghillie that a poncho because if it gets stuck on a branch, it is sturdier to your BDU rather than a poncho

I wear a belt rig between my ghillie and BDU and so I do not like them to be attached.

If you want to use your ghillie effectively, you must be willing to get down and dirty and not think twice about it.
For durability, it really depends on your effort in build and use.

One option would be to have some attachment point on your BDU's where you fasten the ghillie (molle style webbing, paracord pieces with reinforcements, quick release buckles etc.) That way it can be removed when needed (seasonal changes, repairs).

Seperate ghillie net
Attached on a multicam blouse

Here you can see the base somewhat better:

Your ghillie catches on something: what is your expectation as to what will happen next?

If your solution is "push through it" you better be sure it is /really/ attached to that bdu

I attached mine directly to a BDU and some appropriately colored cargo pants. Works great for me with the durability of a BDU to crawl on with my "Ghillie" on the back. Also youll want to make a hood for your BDU, I did this out of an old blanket then put velcro along the bottom to attach it, but also allowing for the ability to take it off for storage. I punctured four holes in the top of the hood and used them to weave burlap through and drape over.

Sorry for the late reply, but thanks for all the help guys!

I will consider the attachment points, and will stick with keeping them separately so I can use my BDU on its own too. :)

HA! NON-ATTACHMENT PARTY WINS! Just kidding. Good to hear your choice man, hope it works well.
