I am making one out of an old pair of mechanics coveralls. I was just going to sew the burlap onto it instead of using a net. Is there any problem with this? Is hte net for anything other than making it easy to tie the burlap on? Aviator

Sewing on the burlap doesn't allow you to easily change patterns in contrast to removing one color and tying on another.

Good point, but I plan on using this in one area, in one season normally. Aviator

In that case, go for it. Let us know if it works.

Make sure the stuff you attached does not interfere with crawiling on all fours. I found that out the hard way, in the field. Scared off some good ducks cussing at my ghillie gunk! ROFL

I'm sure you already have thought of this....but also make sure you spray it down with some fire retardent spray....don't want to end up like that Paintball sniper guy.

Just make sure the strips you sew on are all made of MARPAT! [}:D]

I would like to see a picture if you have any. I am currently working on sewing the netting on my suit and would be interested in how you are going to attach and properly fray the material. Goodluck

I'm against making ghillie suit out of BDU, mechanics overall, and flight suit. Its probably better to have a poncho style ghillie so that you also can put it on or take it off easily. You also avoid getting overheated or dehydrated. Ghillie suit is not something you wear all day long. You put that on when you stalk. Ghillie suit is also a fire hazard. It also becomes extremely heavy when wet. And its damn uncomfortable to move in.
