I bet it's pretty effective if you're hiding in a laundry basket in a laundromat right off base. [:)]

I would have to see that placed in the field and check it for thermal signature before I could evaluate it. It does look odd. Probably best used at low light and full follage.

The government determined that they could save 15 pence on each suit, if they didn't put a hole for the guys head. It is left up to the individual trooper to burn two eyeholes in it with a cigar, like a Klan mask.
