TEMPLATES

This is where to begin in order to cut out your own armor parts.  The templates listed below can be printed out on almost any printer, pieced together, and then traced onto plastic.  It’s usually best to trace them out on posterboard or paper first in order to make sure they fit your body/frame properly before transferring to plastic. Please consult the boards and your local membership on how you size up! Measure twice, cut once!
