It fits well on you.  Good job on that!  And my wife and I agree, if you got a haircut, you'd look like Pre Viszla.

Thanks! I've been debating the haircut. I think I'll do a poll on here as to wether I get one or not...  ;) I have an old duct tape mando helmet that I was using for a temperature test and it was roasting...  ;D

Fans.  You'll need fans.  Just ask my wife (3 foot long braid hanging out the back of her bucket)

My vest came out came out kind of crooked in the front, and the shoulders flare out really bad, but I'm doing some more editing on this and getting ready to put in some eye-lets. I'm hoping once the armor is on, you won't be able to tell how crooked the front is.

Cool. Just remember that adjustments will definitely need to be made as you go along and if you are sewing you could probably cut the hole for the neck and head smaller and attach the top shoulder seem with velcro. You can always cut down, you can't bring fabric back, I know this sounds obvious but I feel that i should warn to go slowly. Thanks

Awesome! this tutorial is very simple, and with its simplicity it may not always turn out good. I am excited to hear it worked for you ;D

cool, just remember to not cut the neck hole to big and possibly making an attachment segment on one of the shoulders so you can get your head through. The one design flaw that I made here is the neck hole being to big.

NP, just make the neck hole small, I made mine to wide and it is causing problems. Another merc made a velcro attachment on top of the shoulder to allow the head to fit through.
