I know where you're coming from -- you want the best camo ever. You may or may not agree with this statement in a year or so.

Forest BDUs have a lot of green... more important than the colors however, is the pattern. Any camo will break up the recognizable human form. I use forest bdu camo -- from head to toe starting with a beanie and ending with my boots. I also play in the Las Vegas desert -- not exactly a forest.

People tell me I am very hard to see at any distance except up close. Look for yourself: Slideshow of PB1 - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting



Keep this in mind. A ghillie suit is fantastic camo because it's three dimensional... it also comes with three dimensional problems like snagging on terrain and needing upkeep/repairs.

You could get away with adding materials to your mask, gun, and shirt. Forest BDU camo is a good base to put some netting on and adding three dimensional materials.

I just wanted to warn you that with the complexity of a ghillie suit comes the problems. My friend wore a ghillie for about two weeks before he decided is was far too much trouble. Now he is in regular old camos and he is nice and mobile and can spend time on his game rather than on pulling his suit from brush and tree.

A ghillie suit will achieve your goal then. I don't mean to beat a dead horse -- if you can deal with the suit then by all means go for broke and make a nice ghillie.

Stealth is 90% movement, 10% camouflage. The suit will make the job a bit easier, but don't expect it to do the job FOR you.
