Jackal Ghillie material

Recommended Posts

I've decided I want a ghillie hood kind of like the cobra style that covers just the head, shoulders and upper arms. Material wise though I'm looking to recreate the Camosystems Jackal-style suits with a mix of synthetic strips and camo net. Thing is, while I can find a cheap source of the base Cobra Hood, I can't seem to find anywhere that sells the strips of camo material.

 

Anyone got any ideas?

I meant put material through a paper shredder

 

And you knew it

 

:D

 

I'm cheeky, me.

 

 

 

 

Except my decent shredder is cross cut and my old shredder would either jam up or not cut material properly. I know where you're coming from though.

Office shredder at work?

 

Is in fact my old shredder (small company see).

You knew there would be someone suggesting scissors.

 

Scissors.

 

 

Apart from that I don't believe anymore in bulky ghillie. I had one similar, just the hat and shoulders but it always got caught in the branches. Leaf suit with some added extra bits is much better IMO.

Craft knife and cut 89-90% of the width of the fabric in straps. Will leave u with a Base strip for attaching. Sort of the way women's hair extensions are done. And u can layer them to create a bush like effect.

OK, so we all have an idea on making strips of material......but where can I get the material? Remember - we're not talking about standard ghillie thread and raffia/jute here.

For cammo strips try and find some cheap surplus clothing with the pattern you desire, then just cut it up into strips

OK, I'm thinking you've not quite grasped what a jackal suit looks like.....

 

The strands are of various colours, but one colour each, not a camo pattern. Nor are they a woven material but a synthetic that won't rot or smell like a bush wookie, intervowen with chunks of camo netting.
