Please note that burlap is a flammable material so be cautious around open flame and other ignition sources. It is recommended to treat the suit with fire retardant spray.

    5 out of 5- Burlap Guillie

    My freind got one of these, not sure it's exactly the same, but how different can a ghillie suit be? Anyway, his is made out of burlap, and on ocasion he lets me use it. It's comfortable, for a bit, then, it gets annoying and hot. But, no one will see you, almost ever, unless you suck with ghillies.

    Pros:
    *Price: comparing to other guillies.
    *Makes you almost invisible to the un-trained eye
    *Works in a lot of terrain
    Everything about a ghillie i can't remember at the moment

    Cons:
    *Heavy
    *Gets hot
    *Gets annoying
    Doesn't blend into all terrain i play in.
    Doesn't cover your rifle.
    Price

    *Big Pro/Con

    Overall:
    It will make you a sniper ninja!(or ninja sniper)
    Get it, if you are a hardcore sniper, or if you are a hardcore sniper with a marksmans AEG.

    5 out of 5- Ghillies...YES

    I'm glad Shorty's brought this back. I had to make my own when I found out they didn't have this anymore (awhile ago) but other than mine being a full suit, they're identical. Any serious sniper(airsoft or not) NEEDS one of these things, and when used PROPERLY they will almost literally make you disappear into the landscape. Research how to use it right. You don't just slip it on and POOF you're invisible. But as I said, when used right this will be as important as your rifle.

    Pros-
    - GHILLIE SUIT!!!

    Cons-
    - Can get very hot very quickly(not so bad during winter though)
    - If you're a sniper newb and don't know how to use it, you will stand out more than blend in.
    - If you're not used to wearing it, it'll feel very heavy.
    - Can get caught on branches/vines SO QUICK.

    These cons are relevant to all ghillie suits. But these things are amazing.



    PS. -- this suit, being a poncho, is made for upright stalking/ kneeling shooting.

    4 out of 5- love it

    the burlap suit is a lot better than the other suit shorty sells. this blends in with almost any bush or tree, but if you don't know how to use it wisely you're going to be spotted very quickly.

    4 out of 5- WOW!!!

    Well let me first start off by saying that i got this for the hell of it and i thought it looked really cool...

    PROS:
    .it's a ghillie suit
    .it does what it's supposed to and does it well(if you don't believe me look at picture 4)
    .looks cool
    .makes the person wearing it feel cool

    CONS:
    .gets really hot
    .can get tangled in a lot of stuff
    .material falls out

    I recommend getting the polyester leaf ghillie suit instead of this one because it's lighter which means you stay cooler. And it's cheaper which means more money to buy guns! Also if you want more info read 50calsniper's reviews on both ghillie suits.

    5 out of 5- Sneak!!!!

    This is probably one of the most valuable things you should have in an airsofting kit.

    WHY??? because not being seen is the best thing you can have on your side if you are outnumbered. Most people think that if you just slip it on and sit in some brush then you're invisible. It does work sometimes, but it's not entirely true. In order for a ghillie suit to work properly you must insert natural vegetation into the suit, further distorting your image and blending in better. I'm not going to say 100% visible because you can put just ferns and be invisible in a field, that's dumB. I feel stupid explaining this because i think everyone should know that you HAVE TO put natural veg in your ghillie or you ll just be a sack of meat on the field.

    The best way to camouflage yourself is to make sure you know yourself and how you move. I will spend most of my game crouched so i use ferns on my back and lower regions, and use leaves and twigs for my upper half, and some sparse grass here and there and lots of mid level leaves for my chest because when you walk, people usually see you're front. Make sure your skin is camo'ed as well.

    Best thing ever.

    5 out of 5- Great for Hunting

    Ok so I got this Ghille suit for hunting and I gotta say that it is great. It works well if you know where to walk and how to act so you don't get tangled. It will blend in to any environment to hide you from animals and if you are using it for airsoft people.

    Pros:
    Light weight
    Blends well with the environment
    Great for hunting

    Cons:
    Idiots buy it and use it improperly.
    Gets hot

    (By the way snipers do not move that often, so you shouldn't buy this if you run around like a silly little girl.

    5 out of 5- woahh!!

    this is crazy! it keeps you camouflaged and no one can see you! get this one or the other one, it all depends on where you play airsoft. if you play in a swampy in-grown area you want this, but if you play in like a grassy, kind of woody area, then you want the other one.

    pros-
    camo
    decent price
    can't feel the bb hit you (also a con)
    looks cool

    cons-
    it makes you sweat and gets you hot
    sometimes you can't feel lower power guns hit you
    gets caught on stuff
    if the other team spots you, you're most likely dead if you don't have a spotter

    over all it's really good if you're a sniper and play real airsoft games. but i have even used this in some intense backyard games too

    5 out of 5- Ghillie suit

    First off, ghillie suits are amazing. I finished my own about 4 months ago, and then shortys brings it back. damn. oh well.
    Ghillie suits are pretty much perfect camouflage. Where i live, there is a mix of high grass and woodland areas, so my ghillie works great. this one is an amazing price for what looks to be a pretty good suit. at most sites a ghillie suit like this would probably cost about $160 or more. when i made mine, it cost me about $70 and two months to build. i would suggest that you buy this. only problem is that it can get really hot, and it doesn't cover your rifle. try getting a rifle rag or something similar.

    5 out of 5- The best

    I used mine to play airsoft, paintball, manhunt, and hide & seek tag games because they are so intense. It is the best in the nighttime, because no one can see you hiding - especially a hole in the ground or a ditch.

    GOOD DETAILS
    *Fun
    *can take top off
    *not too hot or too cold
    *great for anytime of day or weather
    *can cover most guns that are small
