    Will be attaching the straps tonight so will be taking some photos to show progress. I will give the lengths of the straps based on my frame & build.

    Updated first post with photos with straps added to the harness, which is for TDH member Tormental a member of the 501st MWG, my local garrison. This is just to show a completed harness at this time.

    I did all the measuring & layout work & had my wife sew everything.

    All the strapping & metal hardware, except the stainless upper jetpack hook rings
    & the belt buckle were purchased from Object moved.

    The main straps are 2" wide black seat belt strapping. From the upper loop of the frame to the metal loop in front is 18". There was a 2" added for sewing on the end with the metal rectangular ring & a 4" was added for sewing to the end that attaches to the harness frame. These 2 strap lengths started at 24".

    The lower portion of the strap was 12" with 2" added for sewing around the ring on the frame. I went long & added around 8" for adjustment which can be shortened, better to be too long. This loops through the rectangular ring & goes through an adjuster. These can then be adjusted for fit & placement. These 2 strap lengths started at 22".

    The shoulder straps were set up with a length of 30" from the top of the frame to the lower rings. There would be a good 6" of adjustment either way. But this is just a guideline & may need adjusting for each individual.

    The white straps are 1.5" nylon webbing. Sewed a section of 1.5" black nylon webbing with a rectangular ring at the shoulder of each 2" strap. The white nylon webbing loops through this into an adjuster & then goes through the rectangular ring for the jetpack hooks. This was just looped through the outside ring & goes into an adjuster. The second adjuster isn't necessary & this could be sewn r rivetted. Was going to rivet them because of being for ESB but didn't have the right rivets on hand.

    The belt portion is just sewn around the lower rings on the frame & can be adjusted to length.

    The thread is a heavy duty nylon upholstery thread. Very strong & tough to break.

    The belt & upper rings that are on the white straps that the upper jetpack hooks
    hang on are from fullmetalfett, awesome stuff.

    The aluminum bar that the lower jetpack hooks attach is .125" x .5" x 13". This can be purchased at a home improvement store. There needs to be a couple of bends to match up to the jetpack to help with mounting. Used a 1" long 8-32 screw & a couple of washers & screws into a nut on the opposite side. This reinforces the lower section of the harness.

    Hope this helps. Tried to give a clear explanation but the photos in the first post should help with a visual. If there are any questions please let me know.

    That finished harness looks great. If you could build complete harnesses, I think you would sell quite a few. I know I will need one soon.

    Harness frame arrived today, great work! Now to source the straps, as the strap outlet cited earlier charges almost $30 to ship to Canada. I think a quick trip to Princess Auto should cover my nylon strapping needs.

    Thanks for the order, sorry about having to source the strapping else where didn't realize about the shipping, but sounds like you have an alternative.
