Ghillie Suit Information and Resources
ghillie suit is a type of camouflage clothing that is designed to break
up the human outline and help the wearer blend into nature. Made from
natural jute twine, burlap or synthetic thread, it is constructed to
resemble heavy foliage. Ghillie Suits are typically constructed using
an inner shell, netting and jute. Jute is attached to netting or
directly onto military BDUs or jumpsuits.
Who wears a Ghillie Suit?
or airsoft players who want to be snipers wear these camouflaged jacket
and pants to help them blend in with their surroundings. The ghillie
suit offers an additional concealment advantage over players with normal
camo clothes. Paintball and airsoft ghillie suits are very popular with
those who play these simulation sports. They have recently become very
popular as camouflage costumes for kids on Halloween.
and local law enforcement have been increasingly using them advanced 3d
camo suits to aid in undercover surveillance. The sniper suit provides
excellent cover for observing, gathering evidence and taking
Hunters use them to help them get closer to their
prey while hunting or they use the cover its natural looking 3d pattern
to sit and wait for their prey to move towards them.
course, there are military ghillie suits that the United States and
other countries of the world uses in their tactical operations. The
USMC, Marines, Army and Special operations all employ ghillie suits.
What kind of ghillie suits are there?
are many different types of ghillie suits available. Most can be
broken down into 2 categories, a jacket and pants combination ghillie
suit or a one piece ghillie poncho type. We typically recommend the
jacket and pants combination as it is more mobile when worn 100% of the
time. For the airsoft and paintball player, this is their main
concern. The main advantage of the poncho type suit is that it can be
quickly deployed. In conditions where you may have to move fast or walk
a far distance and do not require the added camouflage, one can move
with the ghillie poncho stowed away and quickly put it on once at the
destination. A sniper ghillie suit is a type of jacket and pants
ghillie suit that does not have thread material on the front.
Suits come in 4 main color patterns, woodland, mossy, desert and snow.
The woodland pattern is by far the most popular pattern we sell.
Desert is second with mossy coming in third. The patterns differ by
manufacturer so you must look at the pictures carefully if you are
comparing a woodland suit made by Arcturus vs. Bushrag vs. Ghilliesuits. The chameleon and jackal ghillie suits are very
different than the standard ones.
What about Ghillie Suit Accessories?
leading ghillie suit accessories is the rifle wrap. If you are going
to purchase a ghillie suit, you must also consider camouflaging your
airsoft or paintball gun. Your hunting rifle is probably the only piece
of equipment that will protrude from your ghillied up outline. You
must soften the gun's outline with a rifle wrap.
If you wear a
backpack you may want to consider a ghillie pack cover or using a
poncho. Again, you must make sure that your entire body's 3d outline
has been broken up.
