    Nov 28, 2007, 6:41 PM - WANTED: JETPACK HARNESS #1

    I have purchased a Man of War Studios jet pack, and I am needing some advice on the harness. Does anyone have one for sale or know a source? I want to keep the price reasonable, but want something quality. Any info will help, and thanks for your efforts.

    My last harness I made from a Bell hydration pack purcased at walmart. Took everything off that wasn't needed, sewed on a few 1' webbed nylon straps for the jp, added some backpack clips...and it was done for about $30.

    Yeah, I could image a screen accurate Boba harness would be tough... Jango's is much easier though.

    TK 1191,

    Here's a link to my harness, pretty inexpensive and does the job well. No sudden JP movements or slippage [when it drags down your back after the straps loosen while trooping], comfortable and tested.

    My Harness Setup

    Hope this helps and feel free to hit me with questions if you need to.

    Stay safe,

    Tim.
