The BDU Sniper Jacket Ghillie is made in the USA and is built using a tough BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) Jacket. This is the Sniper version of the BDU Ghillie Suit which means that the front of the Jacket is left bare of Jute Thread. The front of the Jacket is instead reinforced with a layer or Cordura to make it last through long sniper crawls. The Sniper BDU Ghillie is tough enough to last through a military training course.
This BDU Jacket uses the original Jute thread which makes it almost twice as heavy as our Ultra-Light version. Some prefer this style because the Jute thread is sewn directly to the BDU.
You can still add local vegetation to this suit by tying it on using the Jute thread. Not having netting helps this suit to not "hang up" as much in heavy brush.
BDU Sniper Jacket
Our High Quality Jute Thread is sewn directly on to a Military BDU 4
pocket coat. These are made by "ATLANCO". The sewn on
Jute thread covers the entire Back of the jacket, tops of the arms,
Thumb Loops have been attached to the sleeves so they don't pull up on your arms when crawling.
The Front Chest area and the forearms have a
1000 Denier Cordura Plus material sewn on for those long Sniper crawls. The Cordura "Plus" means it has a Urethane Coating for water
repellency. All the buttons on the chest have been removed, and Velcro
has been sewn on to secure the jacket closed. This makes your crawl
more comfortable without feeling the buttons. The weight of the BDU Sniper Jacket is about 6 lbs).
The Hood is built by hand tying the
Jute thread to a 1"x1" netting and then sewing this to the
Jacket. This design keeps you cooler by allowing the wind to pass through
and also allows for better hearing.
On the BDU Jacket the length on the small is 29" from the bottom of the collar down, 32" on the Regular and 35" on the Long
Care Instructions: If the suit needs cleaning just hand wash and hang it out to dry. On the Jute suits you will need to reapply fire retardant after washing.
