Flight Suit
The flight suit is a teal/navy blue, one-piece jumpsuit in a material consistent with screen references. The fabric should have a slight sheen (such as acetate or bomber silk) and be of sufficient weight to create a somewhat puffy look (which may require the suit to be lined). The jumpsuit features several details:
• front zipper is hidden by a modesty panel in the same blue fabric
• sleeves have pleats from collar to wrist (approximately one half inch wide) in a beige or off-white fabric, similar to the main jumpsuit material. The pleating is inset with piping along the edges
• jumpsuit has contrasting top-stitching in a beige-coloured thread
• jumpsuit has a collar which closes at the front with two snaps. The collar is padded and features a horizontal grey zipper, creating the appearance of a hidden hood
• on the outside of the left arm there is a comm pad pocket, above wrist in the same blue fabric as the body of the jumpsuit
• jumpsuit has two chest pockets with curved openings
• two upper thigh pockets with curved openings
• right leg cargo style kneepad pocket, with tab pull on the bottom flap and side pen pocket
• left leg rectangular pocket with vertical grey zipper opening
• left leg lower rectangular pocket with horizontal grey zipper opening at top
• right leg lower rectangular pocket with horizontal grey zipper opening at top
• right leg lower rectangular pocket attached to vertical grey zipper (see next point)
• a vertical grey zipper in the centre of each leg at the bottom of the pant leg
• there are two visible snaps on the suit with pulls at waist level, which are covered by the belt

Flak Vest
Flak Vest, consists of an off-white or beige front and back cloth (ballistic nylon or similar fabric) panels, contoured to fit over the chest and back where the two panels are of a similar shape/size. The two panels are connected together by straps over the shoulder and under the arms. The flak vest MUST be proportional to the wearer (this is NOT one-size-fits-all). (See OT X-wing pilot for complete description and how-to).
The Rogue One vest sits higher than the OT vest (almost to the collar) and is shorter than the OT version (ending an inch or two below the armpit). The under arm straps of the vest attach together with a “strap adjuster” rather than a “press-release” style buckle.

Chest Box
(See OT X-wing pilot for complete description).
Accurately-sized grey chest box with accurate decoration (raised buttons, separated rocker switches, appropriate greeblies, pin stripes etc.). Chest box is secured around the back and the collar with olive drab straps. 1" - 1.75" diameter grey hose or aviation hose should attach at the left-bottom of the chest box and connect to the suit in some screen-accurate manner (tucked up into the flak vest, attached to flight suit, etc.). Chest box sits lower on the vest than the OT version, so that half of the box is below the bottom of the vest. Chest box and hose are heavily weathered in dark brown or black.

Ejection Harness
Harness is made of grey pleated elastic strapping that is 2” (inches) wide. Front and back straps extend up the torso under the flak vest and are secured to either the flight suit or to the inside the flak vest panels. Attachment must be hidden by the flak vest. The lower part of the harness should fall (or loop) just below the inseam (or crotch area). Two loops of strapping are connected to the front-back strapping (at the lowest part of the front-back loop) and loop around each leg.

The belt is medium/dark grey in color with ribs, has a border at the top and bottom edges, and a roll-pin buckle in the front. Belt has silver-grey 1” webbing loops sewn on left and right sides holding the mini flares. The flares should be air line hose connector fittings (or replicas with screen accurate shape). Belt is weathered along the edges.

Comm pad
Accurate Rogue One specific comm pad (size, details, 3-dimensional, coloration, etc.) visible in the comm pad pocket. Comm pad is weathered.

Leg Flares/Holder

10 movie accurate silver/light grey leg flares attached with loops to an olive drab leg-band holder. Flares are equally spaced and have more detail than the OT version. Sits above the lower left leg pockets.

Mid-calf black boots (Jack boots or engineer boots are acceptable). Leather pull-on style preferred with low heels, no laces or ankle buckles (small buckle at top edge of boot allowable if covered by blousing). No non-black zippers. Any zipper closure must either be hidden or on the inside of the boot (that is, front and outside zippers are not permitted).

Accurately styled helmet

Grey or beige gauntlet gloves in a heavy fabric, suede, or suede-like material, accurately styled and heavily weathered. Left gauntlet has a commpad below the wrist.
