WIP - Simmy Soft Parts
« on: Jun 08, 2014, 05:38 AM »
Hi guys and gals.

I'm in the stages of building my armour (only one gauntlet so far, pepakura) but planning my soft parts. I may ask stupid questions so please bare with me.

Flightsuit I'm just gonna buy one from an army surplus store. Being tall and skinny o may need it tailoring. When I buy it I'll post a pic and get opinions.

Confirmed Soft Parts:

Flak Vest - When ready to I'm going to order a K'raam Xrati vest in white.


Tactical Gloves



Tactical Belt - I'm going to remove non storage accessories/loops.


Boots - I will be adding guards over the laces.

Gloves - cover any logos, and you should be set.

Belt - I dunno, could look too earthy.  Leather is best.  I'd check with an app team member; it may depend on how earthy the rest of your kit looks.

Flight - zippers need to be covered or removed (so they are no visible), and arms and legs will probably need to be tailored (because everyone's do), but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Boots - cover laces and any logos and you're good.

Gloves - yeah appears to have no logos but will cover if so. Was just checking fingerless ed acceptable?

Pouches - Are the leather ones above yo earthly? I was thinking of putting 6/7 together on a leather belt?

Flight suit - I think this suit has leg adjusters on to tighten then. If not I'll get them tailored. The zips only one of concern is the thigh one. All others would be covered I believe.

Thanks for the info. I'll see what the Approval Team guys say, if they read this.

Yep, fingerless is ok.  Those leather pouches look fine to me - the more the merrier ;D

You might try a kama or thigh plates to cover the thigh zipper.

All your parts are fine. If you don't have thigh plates to cover the leg zipper and hold the leg material tight, you'll definitely need to remove the zipper or hide it under thigh pouches, and tailor the legs a bit most likely unless you have legs like trees.

With the tactical belt being ok to use, does that mean drop down leg holsters are too?

Yes, but leather gear is recommended. Nylon web tactical gear is not very Star Warsy.

I'm gonna give making my own leather posts a go, if it looks crap when done I will go down the tactical web route. I'm just not 100% confident I'm my leather working ability.

Farm it out.  There are plenty of folks on here that can work leather, and would be willing to do a custom job.

In the process of making a dip down leg holster. Using a ring binder as its core, covering it with a fake leather etc. For the leg strap, does that need to be the same colour as the flight suit or the holster?

Also are elastic vents suitable to use as girth belts? I plan to have on under my ammo/voice amp pouches?
