I currently have a AG suit. I love it... its light, mobile, and breathable. But no matter what you do, you still get caught on everything, the AG just tears to make things easy...

I am thinking of a Ghillie blanket. Something that i can roll up and carry on a pack... what ya think??

any others use blankets?

pictures?

The blancket is easy to throw on and dosen't need to be put on like the action guillie. The added thing is that you don't need to strip off your gear if you have to use it in a hurry. I'd say keep the guillie blancket in a butt pack or in a pouch with in easy accsess and out of the way of your pods.

The blanket has it's place in both rapid deployment and when you're going to be in the same position for a good while.

I don't have a blanket (yet... :heart: ) but that would be likely when I would use it. However to properly use it to maximum advantage it's best used for when you'll be at the same position for a good while, that way you have time to add natural foliage to better conceal yourself.

If you feel you are more often in a situation that you could benefit from the use of a blanket, I agree, keep it rolled up where you can access it but it won't get in the way.

I don't have pictures, but I use my home-made ghillie suit as a blanket as well, and keep the hood over my head. I like it and it's easy to move, the only problem is when your cover is blown and you have to drag it with you.
Aim for anything that is visible, most of my shots are either leg, elbow or head... that is if you see me first.

I went with a ghillie poncho. I don't like to suit up in the staging area (gives away part of a sniper's surprise), and a ghillie poncho is easy to stow in an ALICE, pull on without removing my mask when I get to my hide, and remove before going back to the staging area (people may now know there is a sniper, but not necessarily who). I am wearing the head piece in my sig.

Yeah my old poncho I found it's easier to use it without a backing like a BDU, on and off. Right now though I'm building my new poncho from the ground up. I have a ghillied mask I'll use and by the time I'm done the poncho will be Mil-Spec. I just make a better ghillie than I can buy, I've done too much research. I started with a kit and I had to order more netting to get the poncho the way I like it. I put Multicam cordura on the bottom front and back and tied on a grid of paracord from the front of the hood to the bottom of the poncho both front and back, now I'm tieing on the jute.
