I found this on Automotive Work Wear for $23! It's available in a few different colors and also comes in white for dying to match something else.

I will always take a Flightsuit for trooping over Coveralls... and here is why....

Flightsuits have the adjustable wrist/ankle meaning that you can cinch them down for blousing or just to fit neatly under your guantlets.  The multiple pockets are great for carrying a variety of things.  I put all of my annacronistic things (EI; ID, cash, credit card ) in the thigh pockets.  Also Fliightsuit have the ventilation holes in the armpits and crotch, just a small detail, but very welcome in the TX heat.  And finally, the small bicep pocket on the left arm of a flightsuit is a perfect place to hid your voice Amp. ;)

I put my voice amp in the bicep pocket, and run the mic wire up the sleave and through the neck hole then up to my headset.  Great way to hide it, and still be able to take your bucket off.

Captain Daves is great value...luckily, i just need a black flightsuit, which i can get for $40 at the local surplus

I have lived in Coveralls mst of my life, working in garages and in the navy.  The Polyester doesnt breath as well as teh nomex or Cotton blend flightsuits.

Thanks for the link! I've been looking into doing an X-wing pilot costume, and most of the suppliers for the orange suit are asking nearly $80 apiece. But with modifications, this could work! Thanks again!

This is basically what I have for my Crewman/Tie pilot jumpsuit. I definately agree that it's not the most lightweight or breathable material but the nice thing about them is that the coveralls seem to offer more of a selection in colors. I probably ordered mine a size too big, forgot that they are meant to go over regular clothes, but it also provides for a little extra room and seems to help keep the heat factor down.

Although it's been said, the US Calvary ones are really sharp.  Heavy stiching and a REALY long zipper makes putting it on fast and easy.  Plus its has some crazy pocket locations!!!

Very affordable... even for the bigger guys like me.

They say that the best weapon is the one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the weapon you only have to fire once. That's how Dad did it, that's how America does it... and it's worked out pretty well so far.

I was browsing and ran across this website. Cheapest I've found so far at $29.95 for a black flight suit. http://store.nexternal.com/shared/StoreFront/default.asp?CS=armynavy&StoreType=BtoC&Count1=630947291&Count2=548087716&ProductID=1435&Target=products.asp

I'm hoping to have a medium-gray flightsuit. Would it be possible to dye, say, the khaki one from the first posted site, or would that end in disaster?

I have a medium ish gray one that I've been wanting to post up on here. Take a look at my WIP thread http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=23576.30. On the 3rd page there are some good pics of the legs without armor to show the color. If you want a better pic of just the flight suit, I can take one and upload it. This one was khaki, and I died it with RIT twice. One more time would get it even darker, but I ended up going with a straight black look, so I don't need this flight suit now. If you're interested, PM me, and I'll throw it up on the trading station, or we can just discuss it in PM's.
