Sniper Ghillie Suit Jacket Woodland Large
This suit is pre-treated with a Class A fire-retardant
Our same High Quality Jute Thread is sewn directly on to a Military BDU 4 pocket coat. These are made by Propper. The sewn on Jute thread covers the entire Back of the jacket tops of the arms and shoulders. The Hood is attached and thumb loops are sewn into the cuff of the sleeves for crawling. The Front Chest area and the forearms have a 1000 Denier Cordura Plus material sewn on for those long Sniper crawls. The Cordura Plus means it has a Urethane Coating for water repellency. The Hood is built the same way we build our Ghillie Poncho - by hand tying the Jute thread to a 1x1 netting finally sewing this to the Jacket. This design keeps you cooler allowing the wind to pass through and allows for better hearing. All the buttons on the chest have been removed and Velcro has been sewn on to secure the jacket closed. This makes your crawl more comfortable without feeling the buttons (Weight 6 lbs) . If Propper brand is unavailable at the time we will use Tru-Spec Brand.
Benefits of Jute Thread vs Burlap
All Burlap is manufactured over seas from either China, or Bangladesh India. Ghillie Suits’s material is also imported from over seas.
When a soldier receives his burlap, it comes on a 2” thick x 50-100 foot long roll. He then has to unroll the burlap color of his choice, cut a length he/she desires, (18”-22” long), then pull out the horizontal threads of each piece to get actual Jute thread in which he/she will attach to his uniform to produce a Ghillie Suit.
He/She then has to do the same for each color that is required for His/Her Ghillie Suit. This tedious project requires time to cut the burlap, and then shred the burlap resulting in a 50% loss of original product.
With Ghillie Suits’s Jute thread, our thread is cut into 18"-22" lengths, then those are dyed into eight different colors. These cut and dyed threads are then bundled together.
The end result is a Jute thread pre-cut and dyed ready to assemble to Military clothing, BDU's, or onto netting to be worn over clothing, or to conceal an object.
