Haven't seen much in the way of ghillie suits on here, so I thought I'd share my current project. :) This is my second suit that I have worked on, and is a design I came up with (original idea as far as I know anyway). It will function as both a crawling suit (no burlap/jute on the front), and a stalking suit (burlap on front and back) by attaching pieces of netting to the front. I'm still working on the design for attaching the netting to the front. Right now I'm going w/ buttons on the netting and the holes on the suit (to avoid snagging). The netting on the chest area will be in two pieces, so I can leave the left side bare for bow hunting. Don't want burlap getting caught in my bow :? !

Front view (still have to put on the canvas/rubber patches for durability):


Back view:

Looks pretty good, nice work.

A few suggestions:

Be sure to incorporate some sort of a vail or other means to cammo your face. If you look at the last picture, your pretty white mug kind of sticks out.

You may want to trim up the burlap down on your legs, it looks like it may be a little long for when walking.... I hate stepping on the burlap attached to the legs. In conjunction, cammo your boots, paint helps, attaching some sort of no reflecting cloth (burlap) helps more.

I was actually wearing what was supposed to be a veil that just has mossy oak printed on it. But as you can tell it didn't work too well :( , just the other day I bought a veil that is a little thicker and has synthetic leaves sewn on.

Didn't camo the boots cuz their my work boots :) , I'm planning on getting some used military soon.
