Well, ANOVOS announced they have X-wing flightsuits and vests "in-stock". Are they approval? Has anyone planning to order one?

Honestly it's hard to say if these would be acceptable or not, the pictures are so small that it's hard to make out any detail, and the pictures don't really show much, either. The flak vest seems okay but I can't say that for certain without seeing better pictures of it. The coveralls... I can't make out much of anything. The commpad pocket seems a bit big on it and maybe a bit too low but without clearer pictures...

"In stock" stuff might be delivered in a decent timeframe (I heard so),
but please beware that this company likes to delay production and deliveries in an enormously annoying and customer-unfriendly scale.

the collar of the ANOVOS flight suit is wrong as it has an imperial wing at the back
there was a problem with agerman x-wing pilot who had a similar color and costume judges did not approve it - had to be changed

This is a fact. They just updated the ETA of the General Merrick Blue Squadron Helmet to "Fall of 2018". They were supposed to be shipping any day prior to the email sent out this morning.

" After reassessing timelines and other projects with the production team responsible for these helmets, we had to reschedule the delivery projection of this run to Fall 2018."

Same ol same ol for the Anovos "team"

I wanted to buy it. But I needed it by SWCC, so I had to pass. Even if I needed it by SWC 2020, I'd pass.

This must have been a one-off problem.

Photos on the website do not show this cut, and the Anovos flight suit I personally own is correctly made, as well.



People who have looked closely at the photos of the Anovos flak vest have noted a few problems with it. Fairly easily correctible problems, but I would not try to get one approved right out of the box. Moot point, since they're not selling them since that first batch, and are not even on the website anymore, but still, good to note. The flight suits, however, should be fine, as long as they fit you correctly.

I would avoid anything Anovos has as a "pre-order" like the plague, unless you are truly ok with possibly waiting YEARS to get your product.

But anything that is "in stock" should be fine. In stock items ship anywhere between same day and 3 weeks, I believe (then add transit time to your location). I have received Anovos orders (for IN STOCK items) in 3 days, and others in 3 weeks.

In stock good. Pre order bad. (even if the orders are "scheduled" to ship very soon... if it's in pre-order state, don't trust it!)
