Now bear in mind, I did some research beforehand, and I think that the one good choice that I made was using a set of Ultra-Lights as the base for my ghillie. They, despite the jute thread's noble effort to thwart me, held up amazingly, and performed great to conceal me on their own when I got fed up and undid all my careful needle-work that was keeping the jute in place.
So, what I'm thinking of doing is simply buying some density upgrades and using my Ultra lights as a ghillie base, attaching them with the included zip ties. But this brings up a question in my mind. Doesn't the plastic on your skin get uncomfortable? Or does the included base that comes with the Action Ghillie set have some sort of liner that keeps the zip ties from coming into contact with your skin which is not in the Ultra Lights?
Also, while everyones entitled to their own opinion, I'm not particularly interested in hearing how "jute is sooooo much beter than action gillie, U must have dun it wrong!!!11!!". I'm pretty sure its just my field, but the jute doesn't provide the level of concealment that I need
P.S. sorry that this thread got posted twice, and sorry if its in the wrong forum, but after five days active it had like six views (five of which were probably from me!) in the Spec-ops goods forum, so I though I might have better luck here
[Edit] Dammit, just spotted the typo in the title! My bad
