- This suit is pre-treated with a Class “A” fire-retardant
• Built on a BDU 4 Pocket Jacket
• Urethane Coating for water repellency
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.
This Jute BDU Jacket has a 3 layer construction design:
The Base Layer is a Military BDU which comes in 6 different pattern choices. These are made by Atlanco. On the front of the BDU we sew a 1000 Denier Cordura Plus fabric. The Plus means the Cordura has a urethane coating which makes it water proof, so you won’t get wet while lying down.
CORDURA Reinforced– the front of the Sniper Ghillie Suit is reinforced with a layer of matching Cordura material.
The 2nd layer is our 1″ x 1″nylon netting. This is sewn directly to the back of the Military BDU Jacket and pants with Industrial strength sewing machines.
The 3rd layer is where the Traditional Jute comes in. It is hand tied directly to the netting and covers the back of Jacket and Pants and also the attached hood.
Our High Quality Jute Thread is tied directly on to 1 by 1″ netting which is fastened to a Military BDU 4 pocket coat. These are made by “ATLANCO”. The Jute thread covers the entire Back of the jacket, tops of the arms, and shoulders.
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.
