This is an ok product. It's great if you're using it to wrap up a tree stand that has a background of trees/brush/etc., but if you're wrapping a tripod stand out in the open field, it allows a pretty good silhouette to pass through - in other words, it's obvious someone is in the stand. About the only thing you'll fool is the hunter in the stand.

easy to use and a great way to hide your movement in the stand.

What happened tot he camo
I washed it one time to with dead down wind 3d and every bit of the camo is gone. It was a good shade of brown so some limbs and dead leaves gave it life again. Do NOT wash this just hang it outside if your going to use it for a blind.

I've been going to buy more of this camo burlap and finally found it on sale at Dick's. It's strong and the camo pattern blends very well here although it does need to be aired out to get rid of the burlap odor. I've tried other fabric camo but it tore easily and was actually white on the reverse side.

Wish it had more green in it for spring.
Would be ideal for fall conditions, but it needs more green tones in the background for spring time.

Conceals against a back drop
Product is 54" x 12'. Used for airsoft woodland combat against other people. Cut into long strips to wrap around sniper rifles, and we almost lost one rifle when left leaning against a tree. I laid under a 6' length of it on the ground, shot two of my friends from 20 feet away and they stood there for 5 minutes, 20 feet away, and did not and could not see me. Being an open weave allows you to see out, but when against a back drop, your target CAN NOT see through it. Simple silhouetting avoidance. When cut into 5" wide strips, the edges tend to unravel/fray. But it can be a good thing to add to the breaking up of lines. As long as you minimize wear/tear/motion of the strips (wrapped around a gun or bow, NOT for body wear or motion) they will hold up fine.

It works for me.
I have used this to set up ground blinds and have also used it to camouflage one of my tree stands. I have three of these. I sometimes use two to cover my vehicle. I have had [*] turkeys come within five to twenty yards. They have held up well after three seasons. I also use natural brush to break it up a little. Shot a nice buck last year which some of the credit goes to the mobility this burlap provides. Also makes a nice blanket in a pinch. Note: always wash seperately as it will make clothes itchy.

If you dont triple layer this, you can see straight through it. I was sitting and saw many deer, when they stepped out they looked right at me a took off...after the hunt I walked out to gather my feed blocks and turned around and could see my bow and chair straight through it !!!
