I wanted to give you a sneak peek on a new Jet Pack harness I'll be offering. The one shown here is a finished prototype with some last bits of sewing needed but you get the general idea. I designed the nearly 3/8" metal bracket for both contour and esthetics. I sent my CAD drawings to a metal fabricator who then made the brackets on a computer run machine. Once I receive the finished brackets by mail I then take them to a local welder who welds the 2 cross bars. It's a very costly process taking several weeks to make. In the photos the bracket is seen tilting downward a bit but this is due to the contour of the mannequin torso. When worn though it sits level. As for the nylon harness, They're hand made modeled after a high-end scuba harness design. Even included a hard to get metal cam buckle from my British source. It's extremely comfortable to wear due to it's 15 degree bend at the midway point. I had originally planned to have the brackets rubber coated but I fell in love with raw metal look, burns an all. I had to trim away quite a lot of nylon strapping for these torso shots. I plan to take some photos of the harness actually being worn for true scale. The design allows a Jet Pack to slide over the bracket at it's 90 degree lip. Simply cut out a narrow slit into the bottom back section of your Jet Pack to allow the bracket entry. This harness will prevent your Jet Pack from riding down your back and pressing down on your well painted back armor. You can now achieve a more movie accurate (tilting away from the shoulders) as seen in the ESB Jet Pack and certainly the Jango version Jet Pack. Check back for further updates:
