Adventuring around the country testing the mostly excellent Cabela's TCS™ Ghillie coverall in Mossy Oak™ Brush pattern, followed by a "door top" review. From Florida to Kentucky to California to Idaho, the video shows its use in a variety of foliage. It is an excellent ghillie options with a lot of upsides: super lightweight, compactable, breathable, sized large for underneath gear wear (even a tac vest works), good patterns, excellent hood, easy on and off, slant pockets, and relatively affordable (compared to many other ready made ghillie options). But it definitely is not perfect. A significant downside of the TCS™ Ghillie is the use of lightweight 100% cotton fabric strips for the camouflaging. They will shred in rough brush, will probably fade in use, and most importantly lack double-side camo printing. The lack of this reverse side camo creates a problem after the coverall has been packed up tightly then used: the fabric strips, bent from the storage, will reveal a non-camo lighter side that may diminish the suits effectiveness (depending upon terrain). These strips should be upgraded to 100% polyester fabric that is double-printed (by Cabela's). That would increase durability and resistance to rough use. However the current cotton fabric does a good job mimicking natural foliage as it moves with the wind and it does effectively break up the human form. Overall the TCS™ Ghillie is a remarkable quick donning ghille suit that provides instant, highly mobile, and impressively versatile camouflage, especially in the outstanding Mossy Oak™ Brush pattern. Compared to traditional burlap ghillies, the TCS™ is an improvement in most categories. /////////////Nutnfancy Initial Likeability Scale: 8 of 10 (may be seasonal in availability)
