Like half chaps? Yeah, you can use them with or without shin armor.


^Like that, right?

Thanks Ref. Yeah essentially these. Tho I'll likely add the shin plate to them. I have skinny legs and hoping these will hold them in place better.

I would try and find something more form fitting to the leg.

There likely is. I have a pair I use for hiking, tighter fitting than those. Just used that as a reference image. I could always try junior ones fir tighter fit?

You don't want anything too baggy looking. Shin armor will also help hold it down and not look so baggy too.

Ok. I got my flight suit for Christmas. I think the only thing I need to take in is the sleeves. All thoughts welcome.

Just bumping this as I'd like thoughts on the suit before I take it to my local seamstress.

I just read your posts.  When I was reading peoples comments about the zippers on flight suits it gave me an idea.  Unstitch the zippers you don't need, jag the edges of the area to make it look like a tear in the suit, & then sew it up to make it look like a repair.  It should give the suit a worn look & some battle damage.

I forgot to mention, I like your idea for the holster.  I may have to use it.

The coveralls look good to go as is, just take off the dickies logos and maybe the back pockets unless you plan on covering them with a kama. The zippers on your chest will be covered by armor. Gauntlets will cinch down the sleeves around you forearm and your gaiters will tighten down you lower leg slack.

Thanks for the tips vode. Logos already removed. I'll remove the back pockets. Do the pen pockets on the sleeves need removing? I'll leave alterations til I've got the gauntlets and leg bits. I'm deceivingly skinny.

Leave the pen pockets and get some tools to put in them. I say don't alter it since only upper arms and thighs will be loose.

Look at Boba's shin tools for inspiration or store some darts or something in them for a dart launcher.
