mojo maestro Got a buddy that wears a white jacket & pants combo. The jacket & pants have "treelike" lines running up and down. He disappears just standing next to the trees. Foursquare possibly......

Must just be a photo-op or training shot. No suit, plain black gun, etc.
Lol one of the guys in my unit is actually from Finland and served in the Finnish army before joining the American Army, Dude is nuts and is probably why we are friends.

That is most defiently a photo op lol. There are no natural black colors in nature and that dude would be seen from far away, you also never want to have any sort of perfect circle outlines when viewed from the front.

I've thought about wearing my ghillie suit on the mountain this year, I need to make a new one anyways so I wouldn't care if I trash it, plus it would be funny to come smashing out of the trees with a nerf sniper rifle

Now for pure snow, I would rather have coveralls with some loose straps of some sort of cloth on it. Ghillie suit is just something to improve your silhouette and the human outline.


Come to a snowboarding forum and I end up talking about sniper shit . Also the ghillie suit posted above is horrible, the fake nylon shit sucks and puts off too much shine and even after completing a ghillie wash will not dirty up like you want. You want to use real natural jute fibers and then you only want to use about 50% of that on your ghillie suit. You want to use as much natural vegatation as possible, which you will also need to change out every half hour or so depending on how hot the weather is and the terrain. One of the things that we were taught in sniper school is veg up 10 times before taking 1 shot
Cool info.

For the purpose of laughs, those cheap ghillie suits are pretty great though. Nothing like doing some grocery shopping in a ghillie suit

TheNorminator I saw someone in a Yoshi suit. He would go screaming down the mountain, waving his arms. I laughed my ass off every time I saw him. The thing is, though, he was good. He was catching big air in the park, doing 360's and shifties, all in a Yoshi suit. Such a great day.

I haven't actually heard anything good about that place on this forum.
I rode down it too, the entire left side had caution markers up because it was literally dirt. God that was a fucking awful week of riding. Everything was tracked the fuck out and icy.
