Hi everyone! I'm putting together a x-wing pilot and wondering if you all can give me advice on the different vendors and their sizing.

Looking at either Wampa Wear or Claudio from Custom Props. Both about same price. Which would you all say is better quality and true to size?

I'm 5'11"/165 pounds. Should I get medium or large?

Any advice appreciated!

I can't speak for the WW vest but I can tell you that a large Claudio would be too big for your frame.

I just received my Claudio's large vest and it's made for a 42"-46" chest. He does take a little over a month to make, ordered March 25th, and received May 11th. Exactly as pictured on his eBay account.
The vest sizes:
XSmall 30-34 inches = 76-86 cm
Small 34-38 inches = 86-96 cm
Medium 38-42 inches = 96-106 cm
Large 42-46 inches = 106-116 cm
XLarge 46-50 inches = 116-126 cm


I don't know Wampwear's vest. I bought his belt, harness and gloves- fast delivery, 5 days arrival time.

I was looking at a WW vest at an event last month. Wrong material. Very disappointed, because otherwise it looks nice.
