Show me Them Vest Designs
« on: Sep 10, 2018, 12:53 PM »
Hello Vod,
With me and a friend getting ready to fiberglass plates tomorrow I am thinking ti's about time to put a lot of effort into my vest design. This request is for drawing designs, WIP, and completed pictures detailing the various work, and projects done for your vests. This can include but is not limited to templates you used, hand drawn designs, and especially how you incorporated plate attachment and how your vest is put  on or off. My current plan on it being put on and taken off is based on Military plate carrier vests, they have a nylon strapping with buckles on the side of the ribcage which is covered by a flap kept down with velcro.

And before you say to, or link me to it I have already checked out and taken pointers from  "Point's Vest Pattern + Build tute *currently afflicted by the Photobucket Thing*" at (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=63411.0)

Thank you in advance my friends!!

I like to show people this retired member's vest. The way he designed it is really cool:

as i regret not working on it sooner, here is the flak vest i took forever and a half to make



There was a lot of detail work that went into it, not necessarily for looks, but for comfort and flexibility. this is probably the most flexible flak vest created lolol. it is also made out of 600den cordura balistic fabric...aka its pretty much never going to rip. this design came out perfect. the side flaps wrap around to the belly and zip with 3 flex points. the front shell folds down and links onto a couple more flex points on the side and there is a flex point in each shoulder. this gives it EXTREME mobility and holds to the body snug no matter what i am wearing under it

i will take a video of it to show the true flexibility.


here is a great look at my new design

Would you be able to send me some templates for that vest? It looks similar to a design I've been working on , but more complex and even better.

Sorry, I just quoted it. I have no templates for Whitecrow1's stuff. I think the picture and video might be all he has shown. You can search through his posts, but he's been inactive for a very long time.

The one I used has templates. It's from the Dented Helmet: https://www.thedentedhelmet.com/forums/threads/flak-vest-tutorial-draft-your-own-pattern.3550/

You can see the finished version here: https://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=54884.0. I had to redo my shoulder parts because it was initially upside down or something weird. It got fixed. You can see the updates in the lower posts in that thread.

Hope that helps.
