WhiteCrow1's New Soft Parts Progress
« on: Mar 09, 2010, 08:48 PM »
in this thread i will be posting progress of my new soft parts. here are a few of hte lower half to start.

this is the whole lower half, under shirt, and my m-dsb mercenary bucket.


here is a pic of just my boots. I will be adding heel armor which will cover the inlayed logo on the boot...to armor to fill out the front a bit...and some shin plates most likely. These double strap boots are pretty sick


here is a nice little crotch shot of my pants and thigh pouches...i will not be doing belly pouches due to restriction of movement so these help fill the void.



I will have more updates when i finish making and gathering the soft parts for my upper half.

Will the holsters get in your way for thigh pads or you gonna go lighter Mando and just forgo them in light of the bigger holster pouches?

After I posted I noticed your other thread and the link to the boots.  $90 doesn't seem too bad for a tough pair of leather boots and the fact that they have an already armored look to them is a bonus.  They are actually kind of like Darth Mauls if you think about it (now THOOSE are an expensive pair of boots!).

xelements cordura/leather racing pants. if you plan on getting some, they run small get at least one size up from what you where for a snug fit.

Those are awesome looking. Are you planning on at least adding knee plates or shin armor? Those pants have a lot going on, but I don't think the top of the suit will look connected to the bottom unless you have some sort of plate down there.

yeah this is just for the soft parts though...i have shin/heal/toe armor, knee pads and a special cod to go down there. compared to my other setup and most other people's kits im going for lightweight mobility and sleek design. I actually purchased the same material used in the lower half for the upper half which i have been working on getting to match.

 :rolleyes:

We nag you about knee pads before, and you go and make an armor that replaces thigh pads for knee pads. Way to go hero.

im not even going full shin pads...just something to add to the front of the boot because they seem a little bland

as i regret not working on it sooner, here is the flak vest i took forever and a half to make



There was a lot of detail work that went into it, not necessarily for looks, but for comfort and flexibility. this is probably the most flexible flak vest created lolol. it is also made out of 600den cordura balistic fabric...aka its pretty much never going to rip. this design came out perfect. the side flaps wrap around to the belly and zip with 3 flex points. the front shell folds down and links onto a couple more flex points on the side and there is a flex point in each shoulder. this gives it EXTREME mobility and holds to the body snug no matter what i am wearing under it

i will take a video of it to show the true flexibility.
