    BatNinja's Vests/Neckseals - NO MORE SPOTS AVAILABLE

    Well, folks, this is it! I am officially announcing my retirement from sewing. Due to several changes in my life (new job, new girl, new band, and...failing eyesight, comes with age), this will be my final run of vests and neckseals, a total of 17 SPOTS ONLY. It's been a great run, and I've been honored to be a part of the Fett community since 2002.

    The price of the vest is $110.00 USD, shipping included. Neckseals (w/dickies) are $60.00 USD, shipping included. I prefer PayPal, but will also accept money orders (no personal checks!). For international shipping, add $10.00 USD.

    VEST: I offer this vest in four basic sizes: M (38-40”), L (42-44”), XL (46-48”) and XXL (50-52”). In other words, if you wear a Large T-shirt, then a Large vest should fit you fine. I’m using 1 ½” Velcro for the closure, so there is plenty of ‘wiggle’ room for individual size adjustment. I do NOT do custom orders. The vest shell is made of light grey tackle twill and the liner will be made of a bottom-weight fabric. The sleeves are quilted with 3/4" vertical top-stitching, and both the front and back sides of the vest are padded. I do not add strap-holes or Velcro to the vest, as many people have different preferred attachment methods. These alterations can be done by most any local seamstress or alterations shop. The vest is the same for both ESB and ROTJ.

    NECKSEAL: I’ll need a measurement of your neck at the widest point, usually across the Adam’s Apple, in inches. For closure, I include a small tab with Velcro attached that sits behind the seam across the neck. These neckseals include a 4" wide dickie/skirt, for tucking into your vest or jumpsuit. The neckseal is the same for both ESB and ROTJ.

    NOTE: As I have been made recently aware (as of 11/04/2013), the new 'Level 2 Certification' requirements for the 501st call for the vest and neckseal to be made of tackle twill fabric, which is good, because that's what I use! However, there is no longer a requirement that either piece be 'shiny' or 'dull' side out. Going forward, I will sew these to the buyer's preference; you will need to indicate what finish you want the pieces constructed (i.e. neckseal shiny, vest dull).

    For more information on current 501st requirements, see the following link:

    If you don't have one of these you should get one while they last. Best vest and neck seal I have ever had.

    Yeah, I kinda got in a rut in the last week, physically. However, I'm back on track, and am committed to getting these all out the door before May! Here's a shot of the 'assembly line' process. This means I can start pushing the orders out the door quicker from here on out!

    I've added four more spots to the list!
    After an inventory check, I found I have enough fabric for four more.
    PM me if interested!
