before you go further...
I would go with an Olive Drab or Khaki tan belt...
I don't think they were gray...

it is for now....
but...
that is one of the proposed changes to the standard that I am making...
the belt is hardly addressed at all as far as the "mini flare holders"...the width of the belt...the buckle....etc.

Some of these standards are years old....the last time that the Tech standard was looked at was 2009 and the change might NOT have been with regard to the belt....discussions have ensued since that time.


I am really not sure where the gray came from...
maybe becase the belts were similar in construction to the X-wing pilot belts...

in the screen captures and photos that I personally have seen...
the belts appear either light khaki tan...
or olive drab...


I offer the following..
note the belts on the Pilots vs the Techs:




Note these photos which we have all looked at many times:

My wife is not very tall. We picked up a FAC flightsuit, sized to fit her body, but is long in the torso, and therefore the legs. Both flap-pockets plus the half-moon top pocket just don't all fit.

- Can I shorten the torso by omitting the waist half-moon pockets? Making the alteration here helps everything else fit. (Loosing the bottom flap-pocket and heming the cuffs up does not correct the rise fit issue.)

I could also shorten the torso if I lost (or comsumed the bottom of) the chest half-moon pockets.

Can someone advise? Thank you for your time and attention.

You might have to re-scale all of the pockets...
I ended up having to do that with my Pilot flightsuit...I had to shorten it so much (the crotch was at the proximity of my knees) that I ended up having to remove pockets...and make them all smaller...

but you need those half moon pockets....

So smaller is alright, you just still need them. Cool I can do that.
