    Being handmade i would expect to pay at least $150 for a quality made ghillie suit, depending on their quality i'd say 150-200, but its hard to tell without seeing them.
    Good Luck!

    Folks that really need a ghillie usually have plenty of old BDU's laying around along with burlap and netting and would probably make their own before they forked out over $100 for one that was put through the rigors. What kind of shape are they in?

    There's one on ebay that has a bid at 189.95. It probably isn't even the same quality as yours. If you're serious about selling it, put an ad on a cork board at a paintball facility. It will sell top dollar there. A fellow Coastie has his Dad's Marine ghillie suite and uses it when he plays. It's [email protected] hard to see him, and 9 times out of 10 he's the last one left! Here's the link (you may have to cut and paste it in sections):

    If they were mine, I would not sell it. After all, you made it while you were a Marine. I'd try to pass it onto family... maybe to your son or grandson (sorry I don't know how old you are) or nephew. Even if they didn't use it, they would at least have a piece of history of one of their relatives. I know it's not the same thing, but my Dad has his Uncle's revolver from when he was a police officer... and my Dad does not like guns [xx(]! Please consider before you sell. Just my opinion [:)]. - SteelToe

    i use to make those suits for for 150.00 custom made in my old days. i stocked the specops supply channels with them on govt contract. just remember, when youre done making them, they will be 2 sizes smaller than tagged. taking out seams and lacing tie-ins eats up seam space. so buyers....ask what size it is and figure its 2 sizes smaller when you put it on.....if its a REAL suit made with REAL govt contract pants and blouse.
