I have been considering making a ghillie for stalking when hunting. I don't know that I'm ready to invest the time for a standard type ghillie suit. So I've wondered why making a cloak style ghillie is never done? I imagine using netting as the cloak base, then adding fibers as needed, would save hours, and include an integral hood. The only con would be tugging on your neck, but using some shoulder or chest ties (tying off to a bdu shirt or something) would prevent this.
I'm sure this has been tried, so what hangup am I missing?
