Specifically trousers and long sleeve shirts.

For the pants I just desire built in knee protection and good durability, and somewhat camouflage.
For the shirt, it just has to be comfortable and be somewhat camouflage.

I guess just drop names or links or whatever

I use these:


I'm not a speedsofter so I never knee slide . Having said that, they have held out very well with my use (I've field them around 20 to 30 times without any wear - I also wash them after EVERY game - I know some folks are against washing camo, but I rather not smell like a sewer rat)

Some reviews suggest that they tore theirs when they tired to remove the kneepads. While it's a tight fit, being careful with removal is key. You could also do what I do and just internalize the whole kneepad to avoid tears. Offers the same protection on your knees without the physical pads being exposed. Again...I don't speedsoft...so I don't knee slide...I would imagine if you try to knee slide with pads internalized, you will tear the fabric.

The fit is great, but I would order varying sizes from amazon and return the ones that doesn't fit if you usually have fitment issues

These are suppose to look like cyres... they have the gen 4 out, but you would have to order them directly from china...
I wouldn't risk that personally

I rather like my SSO gear.

Sniper Suit "Sumrak" (grey-shop.ru)
Sniper Suit "Partizan" (grey-shop.ru)
Suit "Gorka E" (grey-shop.ru)

The 2 sniper suits are light weight and pretty damn durable. Though no integrated knee pads. They are reinforced however. I have yet to damage mine running around in a mesquite thicket with cactus and other spiny staby things.

The Gorka is a bit thicker, but not terrible. Quite durable, more so then the mordor tac.

Other options are paintball gear, such as the Dye Tactical 2013 pants and top. i loved my set of Dye Tacs, but too bad im a bit of a fat ass now so they do not fit. Valken has a couple options as well, but they no longer make the cuts of gear I have. Planet Eclipse CR and HDE sets are nice, not a fan of them slapping there logo all over them though. I would cut them off. I wish I could get another pair of 2005 Angel Airtime pants, those were some of the best pants I ever owned period. Amazingly comfortable, and could take 10 tons of abuse. Far more then any tactical pant I have owned.

Then there is 5.11 tactical, I wear those for work. I have Taclites, Strykes, Apex, and Defenders. DO NOT USE ANY FABRIC SOFTENER. EVER.

So I found some stuff I like that seems like good quality.

For pouches and mag pouches, I'll probably go with Novritsch and whatever ones I see around that seem okay

For a top, look on AliExpress for a camouflage compression top. They are cheap as. They also last for a reasonable time. I am always in amongst black berry and gorse and the compression top has lasted about 3 years. I have just purchased a replacement as the elbows have finally worn out.
Do not get the Cool Dry ones as the material tends to pull more and so you will have stringy bits hanging all over the place. So a proper compression top.
It will also mean you will keep cooler while in a ghillie and you can feel your shots better
