With a rapid google search "scout trooper vest", this is what I found.



Don't know if this is what they were talking about

Yes a Google search is an idea for sure. But was hopeful there was someone here who had a definite answer do I don't get smashed on my build

Paz in the upper pic. Is so confusing

Looking at paz.
I can't see a traditional flak vest .
Looking at the design one
 it seems the flight suit and flak vest are  all one piece.
 In the paz pic it's not
I clearly see a flak vest under the waist items.
 And are the short sleeves part of the vest??
 then I see almost an additional thigh flak suit above the flight suit. 
  I can't figure out how to do a look ( like) not actually paz but like it.
Hard with our old crls.
  Ideas on how to achievement this look. With using
a coveralls.
 And my jacket . 
The best I can figure is cut the jacket short sleeve. And just put the waist items over the belly with out cutting the jacket and attach cod to jacket and strap it tight.   Seems the most important is to not bunch up?!?!!!!!

Hi there. I'm uniquely able to assist with this question, being as I was a GML for my 501st Legion Garrison for a few years and have been the XO of the Pathfinders Detachment for the past 3.

Here is the example from the CRL:



Now, the sleeves should really be a bit longer here, but this is the general idea. The ribbing is usually spaced about an inch apart. The reason I've included the second photo is because the original flak vests made for ROTJ were made in the style of a raglan sleeved shirt, seen below...



You'll notice that there is no seam at the shoulder, but instead, it starts at the collar. There are patterns out there for making raglan sleeved shirts, so if you want this look, it's definitely possible.

To the OP, I'm not exactly sure what they meant by "elongated sleeve". I know that when I help scouts with their flak vests, the shoulder armour usually ends about an inch above the sleeve opening.
