Well, as far as efectivness goes: Our team was surrounded by the opposing team and the opponents were raining down bbs on us, must have been like 20-30 guys surrounding us in almost a complete circle. I eventually got out after a good minute of bbs landing all around me. After that round I was approached by one of the opposing teams members, he said "man, that ghillie suit looks amaziong, one of the best iv'e ever seen, the only thing that we could see of you from our position was the shaddow created from the barrel of your rifle". That comment made my day. I was in prone on a mound of earth that had grass about shin-knee high in length. Shame I hadn't had a chance to adjust my hopup from more than 50', lol my bbs dropped t like 60' it was just sad. But I recieved at least 5 complements on how great it looked.
