    You hang it on a harness that has straps going out of the back.

    Harness type also depends on how much money you want to spend.

    Depending on how heavy the jetpack is, you can also directly attach it to the backplate, which works really well as long as the backplate is solidly attached to your flak vest.

    I would always go the arness route, as it would distribute weight better.

    Ok, so the harness goes through the back plate. Is the harness atached to the back plate or flak vest. Or is it just worn under the flak vest and it goes through the vest and back plate?

    Harness goes over the flightsuit but under the flak vest. Straps go through slots in the flak vest and through the backplate.

    Re: How to attach jetpack

    Ok, I understand now. So I'm guessing the jet pack attaches to the harness with clips or D-rings and hooks or something? BTW do you put the harness on first and then feed straps through the vest and back plate or does the harness go through the back plat from the outside so when you put it on you slip on the vest and stuff and fasten the harness then close up the flak vest? Also, this has nothing to do with the jetpack, but what do all the different Fett types mean? (eg) ROTJ, ESB, ect. I'm just wondering.

    The abbreviations refer to the star wars movies. ROTJ is Return of the Jedi, ESB is The Empire Strikes Back, etc.
