I wear a red rock brand bought from amazon. It has a head piece too. I’ll sit in blow downs and add branches with leaves on them to really blend in. Keep the wind in your favor.

Stick with watcha got. The “shaggy” ghillie suits are an absolute pain in the butt—especially around briars! They snag on everything.

I make my own. Just wait for clearance deals, then buy a sheet of burlap and one of camo mesh screen. Cut the mesh into strips, then use gorilla glue to attach to burlap. Cut a slit in center for your head. Then glue some strips on a brimmed hat, and done. All costs about $15. Works great, have killed many deer and turkeys in a cheap bag chair. So cheap and easy its stupid.

My swamp ground blind I take my weedwhacker and clear the path in and around my blind so it's free of briars.
My other ground blind I walk the field to it. I'll wear black jeans, ghilie jacket and head piece most of my hunting trips.

For the last 7 years I've been using a Rancho Safari gillie, not cheap but I don't think there is a better one. It's not something you are going to still hunt in because yes it will snag. I carry mine in a back pack till I find a place to set up. I love the mobility of it, if you setup 20 off where you need to be get up and move easy peasy. A huge rush to have deer and turkey just a couple of feet from you.

I lost most of the pics on my phone. So this is the only one I have. Its during the process of making it. Since, I have painted in some darker colors and adjusted the hat layout. Will get it out soon and update the pic.

These look really nice!
i dont still hunt, i find a spot and park it there.
so this may be a option.

i like the ASAT one but you cant mix the size's. i need a 2xl top and xl bottoms but had to get 2xl bottoms and they are way to big, and a pain in the butt. they help cost me a deer i seen last season.

thanks for all info i appreciate it guys.
