Ive laid prone before in my ghillie suit and watched as people walked within 4 inches of my face, and well it was because I looked like a part of the forest floor
I've got one we bought off eBay that I use for hunting. It's made of a yarn type material, which is really nice because it looks just like moss and is more natural than others I've seen. The only bad thing is it picks up every damn stick laying on the ground. I can barely walk without dragging something behind me, but it does add a bit more natural camouflage. I could see materials being a big factor in airsoft.
