You're gonna have to order online I think, to get the true ASAT leafy suit. It's a small company out of Montana.

I got mine at Eders.com They price went up this year, but I wear mine every time I go out to hunt. The mesh can tear with briars, but are pretty durable. I found the best color under the 3D suit is brown or tan or even asat clothes. The lighter background makes the brown and black pattern stand out.

I took a bunch of pictures of my ASAT suit along with other leafy and ghillie suits in action... I wish I could figure out how to post a pic cause its clear which one works best - the ASAT lives up to the name - just lean up against something and disappear into it!

I have been using one for 10 years for both whitetails and gobblers. It is unreal how well it works. I love that it is so light weight too.

Just got mine. Had three doe catch me on the ground yesterday with a climber on my back. At thirty yards the big old doe looked right through me- I was just standing behind a tree otherwise out in the open.

With the fickle winds at my hunting spot I might finish my season on the ground and see how well this suit works.

When ordering did you order your actual size or a size bigger to fit over bulky clothes?

Thanks

I have a suit but I haven't used it yet. I have been wearing the First Lite Asat wool though and wore it this morning. Asat pants and ASAT wool vest over my Asbell ESB pullover(see avatar) . I had a doe circle me all within 15 yards and under with no cover between us, just me sitting up against a tree at ground level. She looked at me as she came in closer when she circled but never smelled me. I could have shot her but she was maybe a year old, too small. I like ASAT!

All the Best!

And you best not be a big guy. I've looked all over the net and their own site. Nothing bigger than XL available.

As far as the sizing, I am 6'1" and 250# and I have the suit in XL. I can wear over wool long-johns with wool pants and a wool pullover. My suit is sized pretty big, but I have had it for about 8 years and they may have changed their sizing.

Yep! Yesterday afternoon had a buck try to run right through my brush blind. He stood and stared at me while I slowly drew back and proceeded to give him the business.

Had a group of turkeys come in by my spot yesterday, just out of range or I would have nailed one. I was wearing my suit and sitting up near a fallen tree. I tried a half assed call to try and get their attention and bring them closer. They were too busy pecking around for food I guess but they totally ignored me, even when I said screw it and upped the volume on my idiocy hahaha. I don't think they had any idea I was there.
