    Utility pouches question

    I had a stupid question about Boba's Utility Pouches. i'm doing a RTOJ scheme and Ive seen several photos of his thigh & cloth belt pouches stuffed differently. Some with tons o' stuff in them making them very pronounced, almost boxlike on the thighs, and very heavy sagging belt pouches. Ive also seen several photos which looks like nothings in them at all ????
    I was curious to get some feedback on what y'allz put into your pouches ( foam, paper,nudie mags)and what would be the most comfortable. I know I could answer my own question im sure, but id like to hear other suggestions

    Re: Utility pouches question

    In the belt pouches I just got I put old socks (clean socks) in them to make them look kinda full but still be light and not hard. The thigh ones I left empty but will probally but things like a wallet and glasses case in them.

    I have foam blocks in my thigh pouches and folded up rags in my belt pouches.

    I have foam blocks in mine as well, although one is cut around my Radio Shack amplifier system.

    Re: Utility pouches question

    I don't have anything yet, cause there's gonna be a lot of stuff in both belt pouches, specially my Radio Shack amplifier, plus my wallet, my watch and my camera(s) most likely in the other side.

    The thigh pouches with the foam blocks sounds like a plan.

    Official Utility Pouches Thread

    While looking over the side saddle pouches this morning I noticed something I haven't seen mentioned before. While most of the Fett suits have a distinctive left and right pouch, the ESB has two of the same kind! See the pics below. Interestingly enough this is present in all the ESB shots as well as the prepro 3 suit which is basically a pre-esb suit. Amazingly enough it is also present on the Marmit! Has anyone who is making an ESB suit noticed this or made their pouches this way?

    Re: ESB Pouch Discovery

    I never noticed it before! Hey, I have a theory. In ROTJ one of the pouches were simply inverted like a sock. I can do the same with my RA pouches and the bead (is that the right word?) and the seams ain't too conspicuous.

    Finished ! My ROTJ Belt Pouches - Pic

    hey all, after a good night of research, two prototypes, I Was able to muster these up...ROTJ pouches I still have to dye them, I was thinking of simply throwing them in pot of tea to stain them the correct hue of tan.

    Re: Finished ! My ROTJ Belt Pouches - Pic

    Those look Great! I'd like to know how the tea works to color them. I made some from canvas and used RIT dye, they shrunk way too much from the hot water. Next time I'm going to try just soaking them in cold tea or coffee for a week to see what happens. Keep us posted.

    Re: Finished ! My ROTJ Belt Pouches - Pic

    I've dyed a few things in the past using tea, works a treat.

    That is why your supposed to wash and preshrink any material, especially cotton material, before you make something so that shrinking dosn't happen!!

    The pouchs look great!!

    Re: Finished ! My ROTJ Belt Pouches - Pic

    yup, I have a feeling I will be preshrinking THEN dying at some point. I was kinda of hasty and wanted to see how this fabric would behave. Hopefully it won't shrink that much !

    Thanks for the compliments guys ! I will hit the tea thing tonight !

    Re: Finished ! My ROTJ Belt Pouches - Pic

    Great job,and remember,you can do the tea soak more than once if the first time is too light a color.
    They look really good,well done!

    New TK409 Hip Pouches *PICS*

    My other sister (they're so talented ) now makes the hip pouches. The pouches are made from 100% cotton (same thickness as khaki pants) and they come in several colors. I've included a photo below for reference and it would be up to you to weather them the way you'd like. Comes with a velcro closure. These also work for Biker Scouts and Snow Troopers. She sells the pouches for $39 shipped per pair. PM me for details.

    WOW! Great pouches and great price!

    What color do you recommend for a ROTJ or Magic of Myth/Special Edition Fett?

    Re: New TK409 Hip Pouches *PICS*

    I'm getting the Khaki ones (the middle color) for my ROTJ SE outfit.

    Re: New TK409 Hip Pouches *PICS*

    Chris, are these 100% cotton or a blend? The reason I ask is that if they are darker than expected, !00% can be lightened with bleach whereas blends (generally) can't. Also, 100% is much either to weather and age via the washing machine.

    Re: New TK409 Hip Pouches *PICS*

    Here is a good reference shot of the RotJ pouches for color comparison. I'd say that either the khaki or lt. khaki are the closest match.
