Harness Help
« on: Jan 08, 2018, 07:08 PM »
I am wondering if there are any suggestions for incorporating a military style H-Harness as a jet pack harness. The system I used, A modified version of a tutorial I found somewhere on here didn't work on my first troop out. It held fine, but I had the tilt problem common to poorly built harnesses, possibly due to my wife not knowing how to hook it up, but being that she will be my armor assistant I need something easier for her. A 501st guy recommended this https://www.amazon.com/CONDOR-Condor-H-Harness-Olive-Drab/dp/B00865NBZC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1515455945&sr=8-4&keywords=h+harness style harness. (I actually have on on hand) That solves my shoulder mounting problems, but I am trying to figure out how to attach the belt and waste connections for my pack.

I am still a UM, but I would like to work out all possible kinks (That I can think of) before I take my submission pics, so I can hopefully limit the issues to minor tweaks.

I was looking for metal brackets like those used in the movies, but wasn't able to find them, or at least not a part that didn't need significant modification or cutting, so I ended up cutting some chunks off a PVC pipe and shaped them to the right size and shape for the brackets and screwed them to my jet pack. Tested it last night, it worked great!
