Clay, there are plenty of online articles on building gilli suits. If you want to build your own you will need a suitable jacket such as a BDU four pocket, some nylon webbing, and either burlap strips or you can purchase commercially available jute. (lengths of dyed twine) You then stitch the netting to the jacket. Once the netting is in place you then tie the jute on in whatever pattern you like. You can match it to the foliage in which you will be hunting. I’m not much on gilli pants as they tend to grab every possible thorn, thistle and brier in the woods. If you do choose to use pants, go light on the jute or burlap. You can rearrange the colors until your satisfied with it.
