Have you ever seen something slither between the trees at dusk but could not make out
what it was? It did not break up its image it blended in so well It was a part of the
Timberghost has that effect. It does not break up like other camos nor does it
blotch up against trees. It is a tree!!!!!!! It is similar to the Founder of the Camo
revolution, Jim Crumleys' Tree Bark (the all time leader and futurist of the camo
revolution). TIMBERGHOST, though, becomes the tree. With your back against a tree or
sitting between two trees or even in a blind or tree stand one does not have to worry
about what is in the back ground! You are the image, you are the tree. As the pictures
will indicate, in back of a tree,behind a small bush or out in plain sight TIMBERGHOST
Timberghost is made with soft twill fabric that under goes a series of manufacturing
processes to make it soft and super quiet. An added feature (I know from experience) is
that it is water resistent. I got caught walking in the rain with it on and thought I was
going to get wet, but inside the coat was completely dry.
Unlike other camos it is adaptabale to many terrains. Where there are trees and or
logs Timberghost fits in well. What if your favorite spot has been cut down and all
is left are stumps? No problem. Now you are a taller stump. It will work superb in blow
downs, as now you are one of them. At the edge of fields you become another tree or part
of a clump of trees.
If you are sold on other brands that have the leafy effect think of this.How many trees
have leaves to the bottom of the tree? Solution. Bibs or pants make the trunk while you
supply the top half of the tree with leaves. Other camo companies have been saying for
years that it takes two of their products' different camos to give the total effect. If
you have one of their products now pick up the TIMBERGHOST pants,bibs, mittens,hat,or
Ask another mfgr if they haveTick Guard. Tick guard is impregnated in the cuffs and
sleeves of the clothing to prevent those nasty bugs from ruining your day. This comes
standard in all their hunting clothes or you can buy these kit to do it to your existing
Do not forget the neat binocular pocket on the upper chest. A small compartment to put
in a mini pair of your favorite binoculars has been installed. The zipper for this pocket
runs vertically and does not interfere with the string or the shot. With one hand you can
reach for the binocs scan and put back in your pocket zip up and it is out of sight and
out mind. This shows that attention to detail means a lot.
What does TIMBERGHOST make.Hats, pants, bibs,coats,gloves,masks, t-shirts bow slings
even a turkey vest. Do not forget their casual wear.Demin shirts,sweat shirts, a
snappy jacket and matching cap. So if you want to sit in pine trees, oak trees elm trees
or even dogwood trees tell the animals to beware of the bark because they will not see or
My Rating; 1 is lowest 5 is highest
What I found was this is a quality item that works well in 99% of all hunting
situations. Field shooting for ducks or geese might be a problem, but then again I do not
beleive it was intended to do that.
The big thing now is to break up your image. Maybe it is somewhat justified but I even
read somewhere that deer get spooked when walking in and around trees.But most deer I have
ever seen were making scrapes or rubs under or on trees. I have never seen a deer hide in
the middle of a field or in a used car parking lot. Every product is well thought out and
quality built in to it.. My only wish is that they add items to their line..like
tape,cloth andcamo blinds for different situations.
But all-in-all, this is a lot of great looking product that has a lot of bark and will
not take a big bite out of your wallet.
