Seems like I'm helping you out again. I think I deserve the Most Helpful Award on the forums. So, heres the deal. Getting a premade ghillie suit is a horrible decision. Literally every leaf you get near will snag onto you. Its also a waste of money. You could just make it yourself! Look up some tutorials online and you cant go wrong with it.

You really don't want to get one of those bro, they suck big time(I made the mistake of buying one). As stated above, the synthetic jute WILL grab everything and not let go. The full body net design grabs many things as well.

Ya I know that they will suck but I did the math and if I made one it would probably end up being more expensive than buying one.

Full BDU outfit: $30
Netting: $10
Glue: $5-10
Jute/Burlap: $30-50
Etc.

You see, it ends up being more expensive...

Hmmmmm... True. Ok I'll hold off of buying it and instead start to see what I should buy. Do any of you guys have good links to jute/burlap/ghillie? Also I need netting but I don't know where to get some...

And if you have to wait a bit to get it, but some camo BDU's in the mean time. You dont need a ghillie suit to snipe. But it would help greatly, and in my opinion, a ghillie suit defines a sniper.

Here's your link -http://www.ghilliesandstuff.com/store-categories-Ghillie-Suit-Kit_3338850.html
If you are building to last, use a strong thread and follow that with a touch of shoe goo which is usually found in craft stores such as "JoAnns".

You can find shoe goo at wal-mart in the shoe department. Funny I find E6000 easier then shoe goo. E6000 is the industrial version of shoe goo.

If you watched Shooter, at the beginning of the movie they blended in perfectly with the tall grass. You have to go to your field and know the colors of it. Then you spray paint your sniper those colors and make the ghillie that color. Adding vegetation in game helps you blend in as well.

I haven't watched the shooter yet and I already know the colors of my field and I already painted my gun those colors. Now I'm just wondering where you guys get the separate hood pieces and how I can make a ghillie cape like Coldy's and the ones in the pictures.
