Best material to make flight suit/\vest?
« on: Dec 03, 2014, 03:54 PM »
Hey fellow mercs!

I'm looking at putting together my first kit and wondering if anyone has any suggestions/recommendations for fabrics to make the flight suit and vest out of?

I'm a small woman and after a long debate decided it would be easier to custom-make my soft parts rather then take something twice my size in to fit.

I'm also looking at making a waist-cape and head-wrap (forgive my lack of proper terms, but that's what we call them in the reenactment world!), so any suggestions there would be appreciated.

Looking forward to trooping with y'all.  :)

Duck Cloth is the best for the vest; as for the fligthsuit, I don't know what the best material is, you could try duck cloth for that too.

I wouldn't recommend that. It's much too stiff. For the flightsuit, I recommend a light denim or twill.

My flight suit is actually an old racing suit. 100% cotton, heavy, but breathable.

Awesome, thank you! That's a couple different options for me to look into.

I appreciate the feedback, guys!
