Choosing the Right Ghillie Suit

Before you go and purchase a Ghillie Suit its important to understand and know the various ways that a Ghillie Suit is used so you can find out that best fulfills your needs. The first thing to know is that the whole point of a Ghillie Suit is to provide complete camouflage for individuals who are going to be hunting, sniping or engaged in a game of paintball. Made from natural materials, like moss, leaves, twigs, covered in mud, and manure to eliminate the human scent, which differs from basic military BDUs (battle dress uniforms) – put together to create a suit that will provide you with camouflaged invisibility.

Ghillie Suits come in various shapes, styles, designs, weight, colors and many other customizable features. When choosing the right Ghillie Suit for you, you should take in consideration that they can be a full body suit, Ghillie pants, a poncho style upper body suit, or you could even get a Ghillie hat. Ghillie suits usually, almost always, have their pockets inside the lining to store ammo, water, food and other necessities; because if these pockets were on the outside the pockets and its contents would get damaged or fall out when crawling on your stomach. Depending on your need, the weight of your Ghillie Suit can range from a mere 2 pounds to as much as 10 pounds. For the beginner hunter, sniper, or paintballer looking to blend into their surrounding we recommend the Ultra-Weight Ghillie Suit, because it will be easier for them to maneuver and wear the Ghillie suit. Ghillie Suits are the best tool in instant invisibility, short of super hero powers of invisibility, as they provide the best possible coverage.

The Light Weight Ghillie Poncho

Choosing which Ghillie Suit is the right one really depends on two things – mobility and maneuvering. The weight of the Ghillie Suit should be a big part when choosing the right Ghillie Suit, because if you intend on standing for any periods of time, it would be best to purchase a lightweight Ghillie poncho. I recommend the lightweight poncho, because this will give your legs maneuvering freedom, as the backs of the ponchos extend all the way to the ground, so you will be able to lie down and remain undetected. While the lightweight Ghillie Poncho is great, you might also want to look into another product we offer which is the upper body only Ghillie ponchos.

The Full Length Ghillie Suit Poncho

If you want complete coverage, then the full length Ghillie Suit Poncho will best fit your needs. You will want a lighter weight suit, like the ultra-weight Ghillie Suit featured on our site. These types of Ghillie Ponchos can be trimmed down to fit your height requirements and be an overall better fit. Another important point to make is that if you will be on the ground or be crawling for any periods of time, I recommend that you choose a Ghillie Suit that uses a Velcro, as opposed to zippers or buttons. Have you ever had a zipper accident? If you haven’t then you should know that zippers and buttons can become very annoying, cause discomfort and paid if you plan on spending a long time crawling or laying down on the ground. With Velcro closure will be much more gentler and easier for your mobility.

Ghillie Suit Safety Considerations

The temperatures inside a Ghillie Suit can be very hot, and if you intend on using your Ghillie Suit in warm climate, make sure you get a Ghillie Suit that is lightweight, and avoid health risks like overheating. Another concern is fire hazards, if you choose a Ghillie a Suit that is primarily made from jute, make sure its pre-treated or you treat it yourself with a fire-retardant, as jute, burlap and items like twigs, and leaves are highly flammable. Do not smoke while your in your Ghillie Suit, and practice fire safety like avoiding open flames, sparks and other fire hazards.
