New version of my Sniper hide/Ground blind (Opinions wanted)

BlackWillow ·
I'm in the process of updating my Sniper's hide and I'm looking for some input. My latest design is a 5'x9' Multicam in Epsilon (40D). I switched from a single pole down the length to a smaller pole across the top/front. My challenge has always been how to allow access in and out without compromising the camouflage. With this design I'm leaning towards a 2-way waterproof zipper down the front dead center. That way it can be used for access, air ventilation, and a murder hole by unzipping the...

Thanks man. That's Isabella (Izzy). She's a Texas Healer. Very similar herder breed but made with Australian Shepherd and Blue Healer. She's a ham and a half.

Have you thought about putting a camo net on top of the sniper hide? A one dimensional sheet tends to stand out as "something's different ". A camo net on top of it adds dimension especially when the wind blows. If all the leaves are blowing around and your sniper hide isn't, that's a clue for your enemies.

Have you thought about thermal threats? The group I train with has seen several monocular type thermal units being fielded and has started experimenting with thermal defeat options for patrol base shelters. Not snipery per say just food for thought. Afaik the most recent prototype is a 3 layer system with thermal defeat on the inside, waterproof layer in the middle and camo net on the outside for the above mentioned reasons.

I've used the ATACS-FG or AU bug netting on previous versions but like you point out, it's still not enough depth perception. So I'm considering a jute netting, which would add considerable weight especially when wet, or sewing on "leaves" made from the bug netting similar to Bushrag's Chameloen suit.

I few years back I started looking into using mylar blankets but chose to give technology some more time to see where things were headed. For this application or sewn into my woobie, I think mylar might be the way to go. Much like the 3-layer system you describe above, the mylar would be the inner layer, the waterproof Multicam keeping everything dry, and a camo netting over the top.
