In situations where it's too hot or you're short of materials for a full-fledged G-suit, 3'ou may get by with a sniper cape, which is an abbreviated version that conceals just the sniper's head and body above his waist. The ones I've seen were simple pullovers made from army camouflage netting. Known humorously as an "ape cape," this half-size Ghillie-like concealment is popular in the 100+ degree temperatures of the Middle East and Southwest Asia.

I also know civilian police snipers who've made sniper capes rather than G-suits and keep them stowed with their alert gear just in case.
