The ghillie suit, or the “yowie suit”, may seem quite odd in urban areas, but once you wander into the woods and find yourself wondering a moving lump of moss, you will understand why the ghillie suit was invented!
The suit’s purpose is to break up the human outline (especially the head and the shoulders) and to camouflage its wearer as effectively as possible. The suit is built upon a base layer on which thick jute-like threads of different colors have been sewn. The threads break up the human outline creating an odd yowie-looking form. The coloring of the threads helps the wearer blend into their surroundings while the threads also create shadows that hide the suit’s wearer even from the trained eye. All in all, the ghillie suit works as a camouflage in many ways! You can blend in with your surroundings even better by adding materials found from the nature to the suit, such branches and leaves.
The parka is like a long hooded jacket which extends to the area between the knees and the rear. Although the parka looks more like a cape when worn by younger players, this does not affect its usability.
The base layer of the costume is made of breathable mesh material which is definitely a great thing. There is no escaping from sweat during the summer when wearing this outfit!
