Hello there,

I'm looking for the Jango Fett flak vest.
I know that Bobamaker and Loanstar both make this piece but the question is: which one is better? I'm looking for the best quality. I've seen here that a lot of people recommend Loanstar but I want to be sure. What do you think?

Thanks a lot for your help.

I have compared these side by side. They are very comparable. I would get which ever one had the best timetable.

I'm not sure how Bobamaker makes them, but I'm pretty sure that Loanstar makes his with the shoulders attached with Velcro.
Which can come in handy to be able to position them to fit your individual shoulders as needed....

BM's are stitched on and not removable.

Well, I have contacted with Bobamaker and he says the shoulders of his vest are sewn like the original vest was in the movie. But thinking it well I think it's more practical the Loanstar one.

I just got one from Loanstar. It is very well made. the color is gray but has a very slight blue hue to it so it goes well with the Jango color scheme

I got one of each. The loanstar is very thick and very heavy, with a full liner. The boba maker is much lighter weight and just leather. The loanstar one was dark blue, the boba maker was grey.

I decided to go with the boba maker one because of the shoulders. The velcro makes an already thick and heavy vest even thicker and heavier.

I wish Bobamaker's had that seam in the back and was darker.

Stormtrooper guy, I'm following you on Instagram, are you planning... or better yet, do you know of a way to make it darker?

I've been pondering that. I'm thinking some really watered down acrylic paint strategically sponged on could work.

Looking really closely, it looks like this vest at least was actually blue, and then sponged / painted grey. I'd like to try to get that sort of look.

I've never seen a helmet seal like that before. I never thought that that was an issue to solve, but it looks like you did a real quality job doing it. The effect must be great, but you must be dying in that helmet for lack of air and heat.

That photo is of the actual Jango costume LFL loans out for museums tours, not of stormtrooperguy

Though I tend to agree with you that wearing that helmet seal has got to be hot, even with fans inside. Which is why my plan is to only wear mine for Infamous submission (and maybe some of those cold New England outdoor troops) and not for general, everyday trooping.
