Title: Flight Suit Logistics Issue
Post by: Vyther H'Teos on Jul 17, 2010, 03:38 PM
I'm going to be blunt. How do you drop the browns off at the super bowl in full beskar without taking it all off?

I had thought about rigging up a footy-pajama style butt flap onto my flightsuit (which would be covered by my kama), but I wanted to know if there were better ideas out there.

Two piece.

Well, that's a lot simpler. However, I already have the flight suit. Hmmm...

If you don't go with a two-piece, the short answer is that you pretty much don't. Of course, you could always install a butt-flap, like the old school (wicked, wicked old school) longjohns.

If you'd go to the extent of installing a butt flap, you could just cut the flightsuit in half at the middle and install a separating zipper or a few snaps to hold the two pieces together.  Instant two-piece.

"People ask me all the time -So Tony, how do you go with the suit on?-  Well the truth is..."

"Just like that..."

Sorry...this discussion just brought that moment to mind and I couldn't shake it.

You don't is the easy answer... Once you're fully suited up it's more than a paint to go even with a 2 piece kit. Make sure you balance your water intake to sweat output so you don't have to go pee until the event is over, make sure you take care of #2 before you suit up and if you think you're having stomach issues that day sit it out.

I myself have Crohns disease, so I never know when I have to go and when I do...I have to go NOW.
So when I kit up for a troop, I take a couple of Immodium about 30 minutes before.
Locks everything up real good.

Simple solution:

PGD aka "Pre-Game Dump"

If you feel it's going to be an issue...take care of it ahead of time.  Just like momma always said before long car trips.  Go even if you don't have to.

I had to make my Spartan armor fairly easy to pull off to take the flight suit off so you may have to disrobe in the handicap stall.

I sympathize with you.. but only to an extent. Girls have it WAY worse!  At least you guys can just zip ( thanks to reversible zippers on flight suits) to just go pee! Halloween was horrid for me cause I went bar hopping and had to have another female clan member help me un-suit in the handicap stall just to take a leak. Hence now I have a two piece suit. Woot! I still want to use my flight suit in a similar fashion.. maybe on a kit later on down the line.. cut it in half and install a zipper that would be hidden by belts so that one can get that full suit look without the troubles mentioned in this thread. =) Good luck.. OH you can also find one color BDU sets. That's what I bought for my BFs kit that I'm making now. Uniform material/color and looks like one piece when all the gear is on. Try that option too! =)

i sure wouldn't want to be in the same men's room before a con. :(
sorry, i just got the mental image of a men's room with several buy'ce siting on the sink with all the stalls occupied.
