    Apr 16, 2005, 2:28 PM - Star Fortress Vest #1

    Has anyone here owned a flak vest from Star Fortress? If so, was it:

    Worth the money?

    Does it have a neck seal attached?

    Is it a good quality vest?

    Im trying to decide whether to order a vest from SF or tk409. It appears the SF vest would be cheaper since the pic shows a neckseal and comes with armor velcro mounts. If its actually crap, Ill go with tk409. LMK

    I would go with TK409. His is WAAAAY more accurate than the StarFortress vest, both in stitching and color. Plus he also sells a Neck Seal separately which is more screen accurate than the StarFortress one. The neckseal in the film suit was actually attached to the jumpsuit and not the vest. It's closure was in the front while the vest's closure was in the back. I have one of TK409's neck seals and it is TOP NOTCH.

    Yea while I like SFP's soft parts, chiris's vest can't be beat. I have one plus his neck seal and they are awesome.

    O K I have the SF version and its not bad .Looks good but I must agree if you want to go with a more screen accurate vesion and dont mind a few more $$ the TK409 is your bet . As you can see the SF is a shiny satin material and there are way too mant pleets in the shoulder cuffs .The snaps were added by me later . Hope this helps

    Ok, Im convinced...TK409 is the way to go

    Although Im doing a Custom and not too worried about the accuracy, I think just the good report and apparent savings with a tk409 seal is enough to go with Chris.

    Mike, for the pics...

    And for everyone else who bothered to give their two cents worth...

    And Chris, you will be hearing from me in the near future
