    Default Stick Men

    Who makes what ever is best - are they worth the $'s? What size are they? How durable?
    How easy to transport?

    I make my own. I have some that are just a white t-shirt over a chair. But even better is go to Home Depot or something, get a Single Shepard Hook planter hanger and buy a set of the white painting cover-alls. You can get the whole deal for like $15. They will be taller (5' I think), look more like a person, and they have a more stable stake you can step in the ground.

    If you like these PM me for contact information. I think they're the best I've seen. Very light and portable. Completely collapsible, and highly visible even in high wind.

    Disposable Painter's coverall - $2.99 (& up, Tyvek for ~$5 is best)

    Plastic coated 6 ft garden stake - $1.29

    Wire coat hanger. Drill hole in top of stake for hanger.

    For stick WOMEN add black bra. (I got a stick WOMAN as a gift for judging last weekend. She almost caused an accident for people driving by my field when we were training this week.)

    I made my own, a piece of 24" rebar, 6' section of electrical conduit and t-shirt on a hanger. Pound the rebar into the ground, the conduit goes over the rebar, drill hole three inches from the top of the conduit, insert coat hanger with shirt. They work real well, unless its windy and are ultra cheap.

    Dogs Afield carries some nice ones which are lightweight- they are not in their online catalog call and ask for the slim men they come in camo or white.

    The ones in Dogs Afield came out as exact copies of the ones 3 dog night designed, made and sold for a year before they copied them.

    Like Jerry said, PM 3 dog night and suppot the guy that put all the work in developing a real nice product.

    I ripped a 5' long 2X4 into a 1.5X1.5 section. Put a stake on the bottom for pushing into ground and a hook on top. Put a white T-shirt on a wire hanger. Total cost about $2.00 per stickman and I can carry an armload at once.
