    I recommend making your own...but if that is not possible then your best bet is some airsoft suit...otherwise you'll be paying out the arse for it.

    *edit*

    Whatever you decide, make sure you put fire retardant on it...those things are like tinder bundles.

    Best to make your own. Buy some used camouflage BDU's and add stuff to them. When training at Camp Pendleton in my military days a Marine was hiding out in the open from our entire Company only feet away. None of us pointed him out when given a chance.

    I'll pile on, make your own; it's really not difficult.

    You can get yourself some netting material and different colored rolls of burlap strap and tie random strips in the netting.

    Make it like a hooded poncho instead of pants/jacket, that way you can shed that puppy in a hurry for whatever reason if you need to, and it's über effective camo. ;)

    Good save...whenever I moved during any type of hunting I would put on an orange vest...even if it wasn't deer season.

    Being glassed with a 30.06 is not a good feeling...
