    Yeah too low there should be about an inch of the strap coming out of the backplate.

    a side shot would be great but it looks like all you need is to pu the straps up an inch or two. Did you use the measurements I posted on your other thread to place the hooks?

    Thanks! Adjusted the straps about an inch or two. Should be good to go. This is heavier than I expected.........

    Cool. what pack is it? Mine is a MOW and about 6-7lbsid say. But i know people who have used 12lb packs...and i recall Jeremy Bulloch himself being shocked at how light the MOW pack was on the suit TDH built for him. Apparently the screen used pack was very heavy!

    I BELIEVE it is an older Bradleyfett kit. 90% of the heft is from the solid resin pieces. The main body is vac formed palstic or sintra. I have not weighed it yet but if I were to guess it comes in at around 10-12 lbs.
