    What to do???

    A: run elastic around the thigh and knee and shin

    B: use just velcro

    I am doing a custom but using jango leg armor. Any sug. would be welcome. The suit will be dark gray and the armor is black.

    The movie accurate version has velcro running through slits in the flightsuit.

    For mine, the velcro wouldn't stick (and I didn't want to sew it on, so I actually used snaps, it works great and doesn't move at all!

    I'll get some pictures when I get home tonight... basically I put them in a triangle formation... two in the center of my thigh, top and bottom of thigh armor; and one on the outside of my leg in the center (vertically) outside of the thigh armor.

    This stuff does not move at all... and best of all it stays tight to the leg of the flightsuit

    I use snaps on the inside of the leg armor.
    In the flight suit I have some holes and with elastic the leg armor stays where it is.
    I also have some velcro on the flight suit on the front and the leg armor so my leg armor doesn't move.
