    It looks like the edges of your armor could use some smoothing out. Take some sandpaper and smooth the sharp edges so you don't cut yourself on that collar.

    remember, you can always strengthen it with fiberglass.

    you'll probably want to look into some fiberglassing tutorial sites. fiberglassing isn't something you want to just jump into, but it's not really hard either. It's messy, and it's potentially hazardous to your health. that said, basically.. you can use a cheap disposable brush and "paint" the fiberglass resin onto the back of your armor pieces, then you can reinforce the resin with the fiberglass matt pieces. but like i said, look into some fiberglassing sites before you take that on.

    You do NOT NEED to fiberglass your armour as sintra is more than strong enough on its own. As IceDevil pointed out, you ought to sand off the edges of your armour though, as this will make it more comfortable when you wear it.

    oh yeah and for the flak vest. maybe copy a pattern of one of your t-shirts. dont copy the armholes, instead draw a template for it with your shoulder armor.

    Yeah, I didn't mean he HAD to fiberglass, I thought he was wanting it to look a little thicker and heavier. Sintra is definately strong enough on its own.

    I made a decent one out of an 80's ski jacket that had the long neck on it. I cut the arms off except for the little part at covers the shoulders.
