    Greetings and welcome to the Dented Helmet.

    The bottom of the screen accurate jetpack attaches to the scuba harness below the backplate with two metal hooks. They slip into the metal harness securing it from swinging.

    The most screen accurate way to attach it is to get one of the white, nylon strapping systems you can find for sale here on TDH. They secure to the jetpack using hooks just like the real version did.

    Look in the reference photos in the gallery link at the top of the website. There's literally hundreds of these photos.

    Yes, your flack vest needs holes in it for the straps to run through.

    Yes. Look in the gallery... there are thousands of hi-res images of the real suit and you'll see that the collar sits under the backplate.
