    Jun 25, 2014, 6:27 PM - Looking for reasonably cheap jet pack harness ideas #1

    Well since the jp and harness are the last big pieces that I need for my suit, I was wondering what are some options for the harness (that would be 501at approvable). I know about the harness that toolguy makes and it looks good, but since I would have to sew the straps and seeing how I can't sew, that's not an option right now. I was wondering about the mow harness and if anybody has one. What other harness options are available that isn't too expensive?

    I have a MOW harness. It fits very nicely. Still need to test it with the jetpack, but with the right rigging, it should be comfortable. Toolguy's harness looks awesome, and if I didn't have a MOW already, I probably would have gone with him. I wouldn't worry about sewing when there are liquid sewing solutions that do just as good a job.

    Also have to consider your size. Aren't you like 12 feet tall JC? I'd find out what chest size the MOW are recommended for.
    BKBT makes a harness, but it costs more. But he may be able to adapt better to your size, if it's an issue.

    Justin you lose my #? You know just cause I have a little one now doesnt mean Im done with helping ya

    Thing with the JP and the harness are if you dont do a rig your going to have sagging issues think about not spending tooo much on this budget one...and upgrading to a rig down the road if you can.

    No Dom I still have it. I just figured you were up to your eyeballs in poopy diapers lol. And no in not 12 foot tall, just 6'4" lol.
    I was actually thinking of taking one of my bug out backpacks and seeing what I could do with it since it has the strap across the chest and stomach.

    Sort of in the same boat - have a JP, no harness. Emailed RS Props about one and they said they did fabricate them but had no idea of a date for availability. Sure wish BBF would come back. May have to go the MOW or toolguy route (and nothing against that / just was trying to get something more screen accurate)
