Title: Flak vest and Jumpsuit
Post by: AstroKnox1138 on Sep 15, 2020, 05:17 PM
So I'm trying to figure out what type of flak vest can be used for the armour. Can it be front opening like the Vietnam war style flak vest or does it have to be side opening? Also can the jumpsuit be a set of BDUs and tuck in the blouse with a belt and cover with a waist sash or does it have to be one piece jumpsuit? Any help would be great thanks

The "flak vest" isn't an actual hard shell, just cloth that the plates hang on. Any mil-spec gear will have to be modified heavily.
Similarly, any "earth" camo job is prohibited. Scrubs, overalls, Jack LaLane jumpsuits will do you better.

The CRLs (http://mandalorianmercs.org/get-involved/costume-requirements/) have all the details broken down.

Good luck and happy building!
