I'll agree to this for the mostpart. However in my last year or two, i've found myself playing in the woods a whole lot more. There's many times where the only reason i find the player who is shooting at me, is because they're wearing a bright piece of clothing, or they have a reflective mask. Granted, it's given away by movement, but muted colors would have made it MUCH harder to spot them. I've taken from this that if you're going to try to be sneaky, you should probably wear colors that are not bright, or reflective (mostly reflective masks give them away)


Now at D-day, we found that a ghilie suit is very effective for ambushing tanks. But that's something completely different.

To echo and more explicitly call out what quite a few here have been saying: In modern 'woodsball' (smaller, more clear cut fields, with shorter time limits), Ghillie Suits do not really serve their intended purpose.

In longer format (size and time) games, Ghillie suits, if used correctly, can be very useful in recon and, in 'sniping' (via extended range, accurately placed, FS rounds).

It really depends on what field. I play at splat action, a very old field indeed.(it recently had its 30 anniversary

Ghillie suits are not needed in a sense that during the games happening in a free terrain, outside of standard paintball fields, even a guy with a fitting camo waiting in the forest with some ground-level concealment could be deadly; and usually has the first shot no matter how much you try to spot first during your advance.

Ghillie suit can help you in these moments, if you have a firm trigger discipline and other guys around you; but once you are spotted you are more dead than without the suit (not counting that every hit kills you in the soft suit to keep the game fair).

On paintball fields ghillie suit is often a waste of time beside the largest densely forested fields.

Games are on the first category of his post then, too small and too short for a ghillie to be of use.

But they are already shooting at you....

How do you know it's the colors and not the fact that paint and sound are flying at you from a certain direction that you are finding them?

Hmmmm, too bad there would probably be too many variables to accurately test this

Kid with ion (quiet) and flashy colors and kid with flatline tippmann (loud) and Gillie suit. Both shooting at you, which do you find first?

I'm betting on the tippmann kid because of the sound. Even if you are behind cover you can get a general idea of the direction.

Players in the right environment who understand camouflage and field craft max out a chillies suit.

A vast majority of players meet none of those criteria. I include myself in this group. I have met elite ghillie players.

Cool swag to promote your sport!

Honey badger don't care! Honey badger don't give a @#$%.

Shipped price is valid to domestic buyers and will be USPS priority. International buyers are welcome, but will cover additional costs. Insurance costs are included. If you prefer an uninsured package, you the buyer will assume all risk once I ship.
