Hi All,

Sorry for all the questions, I'm very new at this.

Has anyone had any experience with this suit and vest? Would it be approved as is or would it need modifications?

Thanks guys Smile

I suspect the flight suit could be made to work, but may need some modifications.

I'm pretty sure I've read the flak vest is garbage.

I get ticks whenever I see the words 'costume base', but maybe? I don't like the way the zipper seems to lean to one side in the top, but that may just be bad dressing.

From what is shown in the photos, you would have strip the vest down to the base layer and completely redo the front and back.

The screen used costumes have a 1/4" diameter tube (metal, wood, hose, etc.) inside a tight fitting pocket making a reinforcing rib. Each rib is about 1/4" apart from each other. What appears to be shown in the photo are 1/2" to 3/4" pleats that overlap each other. No reinforcing, no spacing between them. I cannot see any metal claps connecting the front and back, no buckle on the back strap, etc.

The vest is a throwaway.
