I looked up ghillie in the dictionary, looking to find the definition of a type of camouflage used in the military to disguise yourself in the undergrowth, but didn’t find any related definition. I haven’t got a picture, but it is easy to find on the internet.

    Yes, they're usually referred to (in my, TV-watching, experience) as ghillie suits. Used primarily by snipers, I think. It probably deserves a mention.

    Hunters in the US wear ghillie suits also. I'm surprised it's not in the dictionary,

    I believed it was more widespread, but I’ve seen plenty of people simply call it a “camouflage suit”. That jars me a bit.
