    Can any one recommend a good place to get the pattern for the flak jacket/vest? I'm having a lot of trouble finding one. Each time I think I find one I turns out that the link is no longer good or something similar. I've got me first mock up the plates and all the gear to attach them but no good vest. I've got squat for money so I figured I'll try and make it. Is there an official pattern or anything?

    Andy, GCN Gamer's Pattern is good. If you have and questions, feel free to PM me
    and I will be happy to help you! You may want to make a "mock-up" first. Purchase the cheapest non-stretchy fabric you can buy. Use this to make the first one, and then you
    can tweak it as necessary, before you start working on your good fabric.

    Have fun!!!

    Thanks everyone! Hopefully I'll have a mock-up done by the end of the weekend
