Tabbards are going to pull you into in-universe crossover territory with both Sith and Jedi, and generally make the kit pretty cloth heavy.

The material is very light.  Weight is not a problem.

Tabards, by their very nature, cover the armor.  That's what they do.  We display our armor.  *shrug*  Additionally.....they're a very Jedi/Sith thing.  So while it's in the bounds of possibility that you could make and wear a tabard that didn't entirely cover your armor and at the same time didn't make your mando look like a force-using crossover...or like a Renn Faire crossover...it'll be very, very difficult.

Meant high cloth to armor ratio. Not the physical weight.

The tabards are thin.....not wide like Jedi.  I'd share a pic, but I've no computer, only the cell phone.  It's a good look for the Desert Theme.  Gonna try to get it through the app team.....fingers crossed.

Use the imgur app and get the link from there. A photo would be really helpful. Worth noting two app team members are part of the commentary on this thread :) look forward to your next post, hopefully with a photo.

Followed the link.
It's covering half to 2/3rds of your chest armor, which other than the t visor is the most recognizeably mandalorian part of a kit. And it still has a very  Jedi feel to it. If you wanted to mimic the effect by painting wide stripes at the same angle, that'd work.

And if the tabards are thinner?  I see allot of stripes on kitsch.  I like the duster look....just wanted something different.

Thinner ok?

Thinner will look more like suspenders than what you're describing.  And honestly, if you're wanting to go with a duster...go with a duster.  The pseudo-tabard thing pictured looks like it was taken off a Jedi.  That particular garment makes a kit look like a Jedi/Mando crossover, which is, of course, unapprovable.  Thinner would, again, look like suspenders, and would, more than likely, not look swarzy enough to be approved.  Again...my best advice if you want a duster is to wear a duster.

Speaking as a guy who has both Mando and Jedi costumes, and who's made a Mando-Jedi (for an 8-year-old kid for Halloween), your concept is definitely into Jedi territory.  It looks awesome, and it would make a pretty cool idea for an unofficial kit, but it's not going to pass for official.  Definitely go all the way to a duster look if you really want that clothy style on an official kit.

Thanx for all the feed back, yall.  Looks like I'm on the hunt for a duster.

Since I'm now changing direction towards a duster, I've one last question.   Does the back plate need to be mounted to the outside of the duster...or is it even needed at all?

Back plate would be UNDER the duster, but not required with duster. Shoulders should be mounted on top of duster.
