Heat and Ghillies - Tips?

Live in Texas, and during the summer it gets so hot, so I can basically only wear the top (semi-)comfortably. I've been looking into creating a belly hide for when we play on private property, which should help as I won't have to wear 2 layers of clothing. Does anyone have any tips in regards to how to manage heat?

Use a leaf suit. They're typically cooler. In that kind of heat, probably just wear a moisture wicking shirt underneath, and consider only using the top instead of the top and pants.

Also remember the purpose is to disrupt your outline. You don't need tons of crap hanging off of your suit to do that. A little can go a long way if it's placed in the right spots.

Another option would be to craft a lightweight combat shirt and attach jute, raffia, cotton, haloscreen or whatever you use directly onto the shirt.
Me bolty:
-Action Army T-11
-SCW Piston
-GunSmithy TDC
-AA 6.03x300 steel inner
-ML MR-Hop 50
-VisionKing 1.25-5x26

Me secondaries:
-Mk23 (ssx gen 1)
-Action Army AAP01 SMG'd (ML Decepticon 60)

I built my suit to work with several different load out options and weather conditions.

My warm weather option..

I stitched crafting leaves and jute to OCP top and pant. I wear that with a Viper Tactical concealment cape that has been fitted with crafting leaves and jute. I use a simple chest rig and stay cool.

Like Accurate said with the leaf suit. They make nice ones that are more of a mesh/screen so there’s TONS of air flow. In the summer I usually wear shorts and a t shirt then throw my field and stream suit over that. I’m better off than the normal combat style top and bottoms! The mesh style is great for attaching and as long as you don’t overkill it, you’ll stay cool.

Can you wash these ghillie or mesh ghillie systems in a normal washer/drier?
(I mean the 3D ones with leaves)

Or is it more like soak in a bucket with water/bleach mixture and call it a day?

I’d only wash in a washer/dryer if there’s no attachments. But a bucket setup is the safest bet. However I just never wash mine lol.
