How To Make A Ghille Suit

In the event of a hostile takeover, concealment is going to be vital to your survival. If you can get your hands on an old camo military issue uniform jacket you can make a ghille suit.

  • Military Issue Jacket
  • Military Issue Boone hat
  • Roll of fishing net
  • Dental floss or fishing line
  • Burlap sack or braided jute twine
  • Shoe glue
Start out by cutting the fishing net into pieces at least 2 squares wide. Sew the fishing net squares to the front, back, and sleeves of the jacket. Leave about 8" between each piece of net. After the net is sewn in place cover your stiches with shoe glue for durability.
Unravell the burlap sack or twine into single strands and seperate them according to length. You will use the longer strands for the sleeves and front of the jacket and the shorter pieces on the back.

Can you see the person wearing a
a Ghille suit?
Bunch 15 strands together and fold them in half to form a loop. Starting at the bottom of the  jacket, pass the loop under the netting and pull the standing ends of the burlap through the loop. Continue to do this until the jacket is completely covered. If you need further concealment choose natural plant matter to weave into the suit from your surroundings. The procedure is the same for covering the boone hat or your bug out bag.

This idea came from outdoor life magazine I have included a link to their website.
