ok the suits are 31.95, up to 6XL and the other 9.xx is shipping. comparable to ranger joes. unfortunately for having an airbase on the edge of town the selection at the surplus stores stinks

thats weird, usually in a military town the surplus store is the best place to go , even for service members....

Yeah, but you can't dye most of those flightsuits.  Thats presents a problem for people who are trying to use certain colors other then black/gray/od green.

yes, of course ive heard of the RAF.  Just wondering why you cant get your hands on a flight suit locally.
Title: Re: FLIGHT SUIT SOURCE!!!
Post by: Lasruin Toth Lan on Apr 17, 2008, 11:52 AM
in the UK army surlus isn't cheap , can't sell second hand any more , so shops have had to buy in new stock wich is limited to the small retaier , so unless there is a local T.A. or regular Training base /barraks them will only sell what is in high demand.

Good old Captain Dave's.  I got my flight suit from them a couple years back. ;D

ok so ranger joes has one suit at 34.95 and the rest are 65-200 and captain daves are 30.95-54.95 so I dont see daves being a ripoff

Heh I can find them and other Military Surplus cheaper. Seen a Mig Pilot suit for 20 bucks a couple of days ago actully. Full body coveralls for more or less the same price. Add soem pockets and boom flight suit. Online too I mean, might make a thread with some Addy's if anyone wants.

So is this one:

This one's a full $5 cheaper than Captain Dave's - and the cheapest I've found on-line, aside from e-bay.

Might take some time if your picky, but I recomend http://www.sportsmansguide.com/ flate rate shiping too for a change.  And this is the place with the MIG Suit I recommend requesting the gatalog however. The site is not updated regularly. http://www.majorsurplus.com/ Flat shipping too. I have more but there the standard by weight shipping. They had black Coveralls from JEEP in there for 24 bucks or so. The Major Surplus had East German Coveralls for 10 bucks.

Cheap camo shirts on that last link of yours though.

the main reason I posted that particular link in the first place is the wide array of sizes & colors. the OD green usually doesn't take dying very well if at all

I will always take a Flightsuit for trooping over Coveralls... and here is why....

Flightsuits have the adjustable wrist/ankle meaning that you can cinch them down for blousing or just to fit neatly under your guantlets.  The multiple pockets are great for carrying a variety of things.  I put all of my annacronistic things (EI; ID, cash, credit card ) in the thigh pockets.  Also Fliightsuit have the ventilation holes in the armpits and crotch, just a small detail, but very welcome in the TX heat.  And finally, the small bicep pocket on the left arm of a flightsuit is a perfect place to hid your voice Amp. ;)

I put my voice amp in the bicep pocket, and run the mic wire up the sleave and through the neck hole then up to my headset.  Great way to hide it, and still be able to take your bucket off.

Captain Daves is great value...luckily, i just need a black flightsuit, which i can get for $40 at the local surplus

I have lived in Coveralls mst of my life, working in garages and in the navy.  The Polyester doesnt breath as well as teh nomex or Cotton blend flightsuits.

Thanks for the link! I've been looking into doing an X-wing pilot costume, and most of the suppliers for the orange suit are asking nearly $80 apiece. But with modifications, this could work! Thanks again!

This is basically what I have for my Crewman/Tie pilot jumpsuit. I definately agree that it's not the most lightweight or breathable material but the nice thing about them is that the coveralls seem to offer more of a selection in colors. I probably ordered mine a size too big, forgot that they are meant to go over regular clothes, but it also provides for a little extra room and seems to help keep the heat factor down.

Although it's been said, the US Calvary ones are really sharp.  Heavy stiching and a REALY long zipper makes putting it on fast and easy.  Plus its has some crazy pocket locations!!!

I'm hoping to have a medium-gray flightsuit. Would it be possible to dye, say, the khaki one from the first posted site, or would that end in disaster?
Title: Re: FLIGHT SUIT SOURCE!!!
Post by: Dragon Sunkiller on May 14, 2010, 08:04 PM
I have a medium ish gray one that I've been wanting to post up on here. Take a look at my WIP thread http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=23576.30 (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=23576.30). On the 3rd page there are some good pics of the legs without armor to show the color. If you want a better pic of just the flight suit, I can take one and upload it. This one was khaki, and I died it with RIT twice. One more time would get it even darker, but I ended up going with a straight black look, so I don't need this flight suit now. If you're interested, PM me, and I'll throw it up on the trading station, or we can just discuss it in PM's.
