Make your own. Do not buy one. A company that makes them doesn't know where you play at. And besides if you don't have the patience to make a ghillie, how are you going to have the patience to play the sniper mindset?

I would think a woodland style (regardless of ghillie material) would suit you best in much of Florida, although I have seen some fairly barren looking areas there. If you use bushrag, you can cut the material shorter, and spread out your ties, which would lighten the ghillie. There are several synthetic bushrag materials available now which are lighter, and even water repellent, as well as leaf-style ghillies or hunting suits which are more lightweight and cooler. If you buy a pre-made bushrag style ghillie or a kit, you can remove and add bushrag material as suits your particular environment, and order more of particular colors separately. Bushrag ghillies are also a little easier to add field improvised camouflage to. The kits come with instructions, and more examples and instructions are available on the web.

You don't have to invest in a ghillie suit to play the sniper role, but a couple of sniper veils are very useful to cover your marker, head, and shoulders, plus they are easier to conceal until you need them, cooler, and useful for other field applications.

I have been playing sniper for a few months now.

I started out with a Jute Ghillie Suit. Way to heavy and it was like a pancho so I found it difficult to crawl in.

As far as color. I think you have to ask a few questions

What position will you be fireing from? If you intend to move and flank usein stelth what colors the primary colors of your field above ground level? You need to try and match that as best you can. Don't use all one color vary it up but use more of the color that is in the enviornment.

On the other hand if you plan on being a person who fires from a prone position you need to match the ground to blend in. I manly like to fire from the prone bosition so even though their is alot of green on my field it is high up and there is a bed of dead leaves on the ground so I make my suit mostly brown on the back. On the other hand I made the front a little more green so when I am in a upright position it blends in better when viewed from the direction I am faceing.

I personally like SO action Ghillie as it has good freedom of movement and has a good 3d effect.

Dude,

If your in Florida don't go with Burlap you will Melt. I reccomend using the CAMOLEAF, but I agree with HeadshotPhantom make your own!

My buddy has a suit made of this stuff and the only thing you can see is a sometimes a glare from his mask lense. Works great here in Colorado.
