Intriguing option, for those who have the necessary coin:

Anyone have any more info on this?

That's look pretty promising but it certainly isn't cheap. That's about $222.06 US and that doesn't include the shipping. It's interesting to have it from the original source, though.

No it's a poly cotton mix

Looking at the original correspondence in the other thread, if the company:
A. Didn't know they made the original suits in 1976
B. Don't have the original plans
C. Perhaps don't have access to an original era flightsuit

How are they more reputable then existing Legion researched providers? I'm glad that Europe now has a local source, but based on what has been written it doesn't seem different than what we've done so far.

It is something very interesting for us in Europe, since customs is slowly killing us with taxes and more taxes, each time we import something.

Is there an official word that this would be accepted by RL, as there isn't more updates on the other topic, following the link to the original thread. Or, at least, did someone already get that jumpsuit and is happy with it?
