Forgive me for being ignorant (and I hate being ignorant!!) but what is the difference between the jet pack cutout and no jet pack cutout? (Besides the obvious lack of material in one version!) None of my research has come up with anything mentioning a cutout in the vest, although admittedly my research in the cloth goods has been relatively low.
That's pretty much it. I'd heard several people mention that their jet pack harness caused the vest to 'bunch up' in the back, so I offered to pattern a cutout version. It's not movie-accurate, but the cutout cannot be seen when the jet pack is worn, so it was a very small design sacrifice.
Hands down the side pockets and spats are by far THE best I have owned to date!
Eric's spats are the fifth pair I have owned. The cut, fit and material are the best I have found. They fit on my CA boots like they were custom made for them. And he did this with NO measurements from me!
His side pockets are the fourth set I have owned. Same deal. Cut, stitching and material are spot on.
Thank goodness! I no longer have to upgrade those parts!
Now that I let that cat out of the bag...
You'd better contact him quickly before he is flooded for requests on these soft goods!
I will try and post pics when I get a free moment!
