Today, probably, every person, who is interested in military affairs for a little, knows the outward appearance of the "shaggy" sniper suit. This type of camouflage remains very effective and in demand in a professional environment.
Nevertheless, a full sniper "shaggy" suit (jacket and trousers or overalls) has a significant weight and dimensions in the assembled, marching position. In a hot period, it is difficult to be in such a suit. There are often cases where only the top part (jacket) of the "shaggy" suit is sufficient for effective camouflage. In addition, part of the suit, turned to the ground when crawling and on the "lying" position, does not participate in the masking process.
Now we have developed a "sniper cape", combining all the advantages of the classic "shaggy" sniper suit and taking into account all of the above nuances in the use of such equipment. The cape is a mixed fabric base (50% cotton / 50% polyester) in the form of a waistcoat with an elongated, embracing side, a back part with a lower cut just below the gluteal region, with short sleeves to the elbows, with a hood and without the thoracic part.
On the torso, the cape is held by two horizontal fasteners, the phasteks, which are in the closed state, in the upper part of the chest. In the absence of the chest section of the waistcoat, for a denser fit and fitting of the front of the sleeves to the body, along the edges of the right and left upper anterior sections of the capes pass tightenings from a rubberized cord with plastic clips. For better ventilation, the right and left thirds of the deep hood are made of fine mesh fabric, and the central section of the same mixture. The hood is removable and fastened to the cloak with eleven unfastened hinges on the Velcro for the appropriate plastic hinges.
The entire outer side of the cape and hood is covered with sewn cells of a wide mesh. At the heart of the grid is an 8 mm synthetic band of dark olive color. The square cells formed by the grid have a size of 60x60 mm. The size of the cells can be called optimal for further entanglement of patchwork fabric camouflage components, elements of natural vegetation and other camouflaging means.
Thus, using a sniper cape as a basis, the user, with the help of suitable improvised materials and the corresponding vegetation area, can, within a short period of time, form a light sniper camouflage "for himself" and under specific conditions of use. At the same time, the cape weighs a little, takes up little space in the backpack, is perfectly ventilated, does not prevent crawling and wearing of unloading systems.
Even the smallest, in terms of scale, trial test tests showed the high efficiency of the sniper cape, modified to the conditions of the Middle European vegetation in the middle of the summer season.
