Hey, with winter coming up and all, I figured I'd share my info about winter camo! I personally think a ghillie suit looks wrong in the winter, because the snow smoothes everything out, and a shadowy leafy white thing looks out of place! They still work of course, but I just think it's not worth making one when you could make/buy an alternative for very cheap.
And now, presenting the German Snow Poncho



(This last picture is from a thread on MiA, here)http://miairsoft.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=gear&action=display&thread=1003

I got one several years ago and only recently was i able to actually fit it, lol, and I've discovered how effective it really is! (Super effective)

A few pros over a ghillie:
Lightweight
Cheap/time efficient
I believe it blends in better anyway

In the winter, there are basically two colors. White and dark brown/green. The contrast between the dazzling white and anything else renders that other color almost black! In fact, a pure black suit can blend in almost as well as white in some areas.


And here is how to make one!


Ok, so I took a closer look at the poncho I own, and starts, not with a rhombus, but with two 3'x8' sheets sewn together to make a 6'x8' rectangle. Other than that the construction is the same.
(8' is an estimate, Just use whatever length necessarily to fall to just below the knees- Or anywhere else you prefer for that matter!)

oh LOL. Well there's your solution I guess
I dunno, this gives more room for customization for one thing, and if you have the materials, (like me) it would be a lot faster than ordering online and waiting for it. Also some people (again, me) don't have the ability to easily order stuff online, I have to go through parents or older siblings, and that takes a while/isn't always possible!

So yeah xD Your best option is probably to just buy one five :B
