The neat thing about this cloak is that it is simply a rectangular piece of camouflage printed mesh, but by using some some cleverly positioned press studs and a drawcord it turns into a cloak which is worn much like a jacket. The inspiration for this simply smart trick came from Snigel Designs Ghillie Cloak. Unlike Viper hoods, camouflage ponchos with hoods and arm holes etc. this simply clever design keeps the mesh base as a solid rectangular piece of mesh and as such it functions really well as a personal camouflage net for fighting positions and OP's.
The press stud closure system makes it possible to don and doff backpacks from underneath the cloak without removing the cloak itself. By opening up the "sleeve studs" you can remove your pack, rummage through it and then just reverse and close the studs. The studs also offer a quick emergency release of sorts, if you´re in trouble or the cloak has snagged really badly on some branches or crap just rip open the studs and you´re free!
The strong polyester mesh fabric of the summer woodland variant offers a reliable surface for attaching natural camouflage and other added materials to further improve the camouflage effect. This makes it quick and easy to adapt the camouflage cloak to various woodland terrains and seasons.
M05 woodland camo
100% polyester mesh, weight 260 g/m2. The base mesh fabric is the same which is used in many pieces of the Finnish Defence Forces M05 load bearing system, simply printed in M05 camouflage instead of just being dyed solid green.
M05 snow camo
100% polyamide ripstop, weight 70 g/m2. Just like the Finnish military issue personal camouflage nets also our winter version is made from a "normal" non-mesh fabric. Mesh simply does not function properly in snow, it collects snow and gets clogged and heavy.
The edges of the fabric are cut and finished only by the reinforcing webbing running along the sides. The stitching on the webbing keeps the fabric from fraying. If the fibres from the rough, unfolded edge of the fabric start to annoy you we recommend a simple trim job: cut and burn with scissors and a lighter. Don't try to pull/rip these fibres off, they won´t snap off and you´ll just end up with a whole lot of long loose fibres.
