There is no doubt that a Ghillie suit is far better camouflage than a regular uniform – it more effectively breaks up the human shape, and picks up all manner of detritus to help you blend in with your surroundings. The only real drawback is the heat – due to the thickness of the layers you are far more insulated than in a normal BDU, which is perfect for the colder months…but you really feel it in the dead of summer.
This particular one is a 4-piece set: trousers, jacket, hat and rifle cover. The benefit of this system is that you can pick and choose what you need for the given situation, whether it’s the full suit, or just half n’ half.
Manufactured by Mil-Tec, this Ghillie suit is perfect for both open field and woodland use. The more you use it, the better it gets! As you move through the woods, the suit picks up leaves, twigs, moss etc all of which works to camouflage you more effectively within the area. It is extremely effective, particularly at a distance as it completely breaks up the human shape, so watchful eyes will more easily gloss over the area allowing you to be a lot more stealthy.
In the military snipers will custom make their own suits, however that takes an awful lot of time and dedication. This 4-piece suit from MilTec is perfect for airsoft use, and is ready to go out of the box.
