Title: Soft part W.I.P
Post by: Avidem on Oct 29, 2013, 01:41 AM
So I was in process of organizing the spare bedroom and came across one of my sea bags. Upon dumping in out I realized I had like 6 pairs of coveralls. My question is are they acceptable and if not what steps would I have to take to make them so. Keep in mind that my kit is going to have a Kama and thigh armor with copious med pouches.

I'm going to remove the name tag and Navy tag

please note that I'm not wearing boots.

If you need better quality one let me know and I'll retake them. In all it still fits pretty well. A little snug in some areas, but that can be fixed with exercise. (lol) The front zipper is pretty much covered and when you add the flak vest, ammo belt, and cod piece then no one will see it. The only pockets I'm worried about are the front and back, but I can fix that if need be. I would think it might be fine since I'm doing a kama but it's better to be in CRLs while working then get dinged during my application.

I'm thinking about going with these gloves:

Post by: Swift on Nov 01, 2013, 04:26 AM
Coveralls are absolutely fine: I use grey work coveralls for my kit. I didn't even bother taking most of the tags and patches off, since they're generally covered by the vest. That one looks like a perfect fit for you, so it'll definitely be fine :)
Those gloves look like they may be a tad hot though (hard to tell without knowing what material they are).
Title: Re: coveralls
Post by: Avidem on Nov 01, 2013, 06:12 PM
I believe they are nomex. If anything I can order a pair and see how they feel. That way if they end up being to hot I can get something else before I spend a whole day in my kit.
Title: Re: coveralls
Post by: Manbrolorian on Nov 01, 2013, 08:28 PM
Those Nomex gloves are actually really easy to troop in. A lot of 501st TKs use them.

Awesomesauce. Just have to pick the right color to match my coveralls.

Well my shin armor is going to be wrap around so it shouldn't be as bad. Just have to find out.

I have a question. I'm going to incorporate my ammo belt and kama together and I'm wondering if I can do a m.o.l.l.e set up for the belt
Title: Re: coveralls
Post by: Avidem on Nov 05, 2013, 12:16 AM
Can I get some clarification on something. Is a girth belt required for a kit or can it be left out.

They are not, but in my experience kits look much better with them. I'm currently getting one, but my kit got approved without it :)
I'm afraid I'm not sure about your belt question though.
Title: Re: coveralls
Post by: Niabi on Nov 05, 2013, 11:26 AM
 no you don't need a girth belt but it looks better with in my opinion or at least a sash.

As for your other belt Q, got a pic?

Post by: Avidem on Nov 05, 2013, 01:07 PM
I don't have anything made just yet. I know how I want it to look in my head. When I get some free time today I'll get some reference pictures and work on drawing it out.

I was approved with a MOLLE belt, but upgraded to a custom leather job one of my clan mates made for me.

That said, rock on with it, but a good leather girth belt looks far better than modern milspec gear.

Just wondering, but can somebody give me some tips on making these coveralls look like they have seen some action. They still look new, probably because I never had to wear them much, and for a my kit I want to look like I've been in the thick of it.

Put them on and go hog wild!  Or change a car engine, whichever. :D

this guy does a lot of extreme weathering for post apoc stuff.  You could of course not go as extreme as he does and get your desired look  https://www.youtube.com/user/NuclearSnailStudios

If you have a car or 4-wheeler, tie them to a trailer hitch or something, and drag them up and down the street a couple of times.

Erm, not with you in them.  Just throwing that out there.  I mean, yes, you'll get better pinpoint results but, ouch.  :laugh:
Title: Re: coveralls
Post by: Avidem on May 03, 2014, 12:52 AM
I could see how that conversation would go with my girlfriend. Lol. I was actually thinking about dragging them down my driveway since it's gravel. Five or six time should be sufficient.

So I'm changing this to a W.I.P thread now. I'm still weathering my cover all at the moment, but I have order a belt, three ammo pouches, and a shemagh. Once I dig out a pair of boots I'm thinking about using I'll post them to get the verified. The belt and pouches were military surplus so any stamps, logos, or what not is going to be removed. Once they get here I'll throw some images of everything up.

Quick question: If I use a set of suspenders and they are cover by my flak vest and the just the clip part could be seen would that be allowed? Reason for this is my belt with probably be heavy with the load out I'm going with and the gear that will be in it so the extra support to keep it from sliding down would be nice.

Normally, shemaghs look rather earthy/ military-chic.  I've gone on the record many times advising against using them in a kit.

What do you have planned for it?
Title: Re: Soft part W.I.P

Not sure yet. Want to use it as a personal accent to my kit.

Got another goody in the mail today. My belt and gloves should be arriving tomorrow.  ;D  Still have to get a couple more pouches, but it'll have to wait till I get paid. I'm thinking about doing a buttpack until I can get my backpack made.

Something like this:

Thanks. When I get a chance I'm going to dirty it up. It's to shiny for the moment.

Ordered my belt pouches today. So once my new flight suit and kama get here I should be done with my soft parts. I hope.

Got an update on my Kama. Should be here in a few weeks. Much excite. Here's what it's going to be look like so far.

Understandable. You can always check military surplus sights they usually have lots of web belts and ammo pouches.

Little delayed but I got my new ammo pouches in the other day. Got four of these.

Some I done a few tweaks. Dyed the belt Saturday thanks to a clan member. Now it isn't such a sore thumb. Also, I bought 4 yards worth of duck cloth today and plan to make some shin wraps out of it.

Time for a little bumpy bump.

I am going to do a sash under the girth belt. It was pointed out at the last armor party that it could help hide the zipper that perks out a little. My vest is currently having magnets sewn into it. Pictures coming soon.

Working adding holsters to the belt. Just a rough thought of how I want them on the belt.

Got my patch on the med bag today.

Still needs some weathering, but it's getting there. Should be getting the vest back soon so I can start attaching magnets to the plates and test fit it all.

I like those med patches for the gloves. Once you get some weathering onto them to knock back the harshness of the white they should feel nicely "lived in".

I plan to knock the white down some. Might singe then a little as well.

Alright vod. I need some help with my belt. currently I'm not liking how it's held up and I know that once I add my holsters and the rest of my soft bits I'm probably going to have trouble keeping it up. I like the buckle I currently have, but I could use some suggestions as to make it more secure.

Is it secure right now with just the pouches and your concern is only when more weight is added with the holsters?

If so you could put a normal belt between your Sash/Girth layer and the ammo belt layer for the holsters. The ammo belt would hide it and the normal belt would take the weight of the weapon holsters.

It's a little loose at the moment, but it stays put. My concern is when I add more to it. On top I had considered was doing suspenders that would be worn underneath the the flak vest. I could do the regular belt underneath as well I'm just now sure how I'd attach it to the ammo belt.

Alright, I've changed the buckle for my belt and thought I had the med bag attached, but it's off center and bugging me so I have to adjust it. Holsters for my blasters will be ordered when funds are ready. Still working on knife sheaths though. I was pondering about attaching some type of clips to attach trophies and other odd things to, but I haven't found anything I like. I know what I want it's just translating it from my head to real life.

Alright, I'm back yet again. After going through some personal stuff and looking at the progress I had made I felt I needed to take a step back and re-evaluate everything.

So I've decided to start from the beginning with the entire kit. So with that in mind I bought some material to change the flight suit.
