Putting On Your Ghillie Best

When Looking for Better Cover and Camouflage

Any experienced hunter or marksman is familiar with the necessity of camouflage in any situation where it is important to blend in with one’s surroundings. While most hunters own a bit of camouflage specific to the environments where they spend the most time, some might find the search for even better covering a bit intimidating if they aren’t quite sure what they’re looking for. Websites devoted to making this search for better camouflage as easy as possible, like, are determined to bring as much information on these types of products to the buyer as possible.

Ghillie Suit Comparison Shopping

When deciding on a Ghillie suit, it is important to know the structural variances between the different types of suits so one might make the best decision based on the quality of the garment and the amount of money they would like to spend. One of the biggest mistakes buyers make when purchasing a Ghillie suit is not putting enough research into it before they decide to buy. Rather than basing their purchase on the quality of the suit, many buyers end up basing their purchases on the price. In doing this, it is impossible for buyers to be confident in what they’re purchasing, how it’s built, how long it will last, and how it compares to other suits on the market. The team at Ghillie Suits plan on changing that by educating the masses in the differences between the three types of construction among suit manufacturers.

There are three different types of Ghillie suit construction. These three different types are usually classified to as ‘Good,' ‘Better,' and ‘Best’. The important difference between the three suits is how the Ghillie thread is attached to the garment. 

The Good Ghillie Suit

The form of suit construction classified as ‘Good’ makes up the less expensive brands of Ghillie suits. The manufactures fold each thread in half, then sew across the loops of the thread in a row, leaving the strands of thread to hang down and form the camouflage. While these look acceptable, those folded threads mean it doesn’t take much force to remove them from the suit, so they are easily caught on trees and bushes and, in the long run, will end up leaving the suit with some noticeable tufts missing.

The Better Ghillie Suit

The form of suit construction classified as ‘Better’ is among the medium-priced brands of Ghillie suits. These manufacturers also sew each thread in a row, but the thread in this type of construction is not looped. Companies like Ghillie Suits have patented their own method of manufacturing ‘Better’ suits. They begin by making the thread on a mill, much like weaving a blanket or fabric. The thread is then woven, folded in half, and sewed in a row. 

The Best Ghillie Suit

The form of suit construction classified as ‘Best’ is among the more expensive brands of Ghillie suits, and is international patented by Ghillie Suits. Like the way a military sniper is trained to build his own suit, the thread is tied to the netting by hand and is then either sewn right to clothing, or the netting is used as to drape over one’s body or an object. The reason netting and hand tying the thread is more expensive and desirable is because there is no discernible pattern left in the suit when it is complete. In addition, one can also remove certain colors from the netting, add colors, or even add local plants and vegetation in order to blend in to your current environment, even if you are moving from one environment to the next.

Choosing the Ghillie Suit that Works Best for You

After doing a bit of research and deciding which Ghillie suit works best for your needs, it is time to decide how much money you’d like to spend. It is important to note that your Ghillie suit should be fire retardant due to the flammable nature of the materials. If you are considering this an investment, you might also want to consider making sure your suit is covered for theft or damage - either through home insurance or property insurance. 

Whether you’re looking for something that will last a long time and give you your money’s worth, or something inexpensive that you may only use once or twice a year, finding manufacturers who are experienced and informative is one of the most best ways to make sure you end up happy with your purchase.
