Ok the day I got them, I wrote out a huge review. However my computer crashed and I lost it. Oh well this'll be short and sweet.

First off, I'm a big sweaty bastid. I'm 6'6 260lbs. Obviously I present a huge target, and I tend to spend the whole day covered in buckets of sweat. The best thing I ever did was go to the Ultralights, however camo just doesn't do it when you're trying to hide something like me. So I started researching ghillie, i read every Jute vs Action Ghillie thread out there. I ended up realizing that if I'm collapsed on the ground from heat exhaustion, my cover is no use. So I went with AG!

I'll probably post more about it later. Its lighter than burlap by far, if there isn't a breeze it gets pretty warm, but the second that air hits you, its perfect. Everything in my neighborhood is brown, but the areas I play have plenty of green leafy trees and undergrowth. Oddly, much to my surprise it didn't snag at all playing. Only time it snagged was when i hopped over a barbwire fence, it caught and i just pulled, a small piece tore, but not completely off of the pants.

Everyone on the field loves it. They call it cheating :-p In the pics, my fiance was never over 100 feet away (she was taking the pics).

Did you add in a Density Uprgrade to that? Also wat type of camo did you go with, eg woodland etc. Because where i play is pretty similar.

This was actually the premade kit, so it was "all season". It has a bit of everything as you can see. I bought a density upgrade with it in woodland digi, but its pretty dark for right now in montana, so I haven't put any on.

The mask was the kit that comes with a bunch of different types.

Honestly though, the premade is the way to go. It costs a bit more, but dang its so simple.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has their's a bit bulky. Especially the hood, I thought it was just me not knowing how to do it right.

I need to get a review going too.

Nice pictures, thank you!

Man thare is nothing like sneeking up to people and talking to them, then watch as they slowly go insane thinking they got a voice in there head, or jumping out and scareing people, or if you really good sneak around at night and put random.... I shouldent be giveing teens ideas huh?.... Well it's also good for training for millatary jobs or hunting... And photography.. ;)

Ay, yo! I just bought mine this year. Yes, it is very nice having the pre-made suit and I'm near your size and the AG hides well. Still haven't gotten the density upgrade tied in yet. I went with an Omnipat up and I'm wanting to get another big chunk of the woodland to fill in some of the "holes" were you can still see the cammies. The AG is extremely light and breathable, love this stuff.
