TK esb armordetail.jpeg Armor Details
For 501st approval:
501st Note: The following are recommendations. Failure to meet any of these points is not a reason to defer approval.
  • Shoulder straps should not be attached with rivets, and should free float in the back rather than being permanently attached.
  • Armor side gaps should be closed. This should be done by adding a shim or shims of material that must be of similar material and color as the ab and back plate. Shims should fit flush and may have seams. Ideally they will be seamless if possible to the ab and/or back plate, resulting in a single seam between the ab/back rather than extra seams for where the shims are joined.
  • Thermal detonator should be attached via metal clips approximately 1 inch wide, and should be all gray without silver stickers or silver paint.
  • Belt drop boxes should be closed in back.
  • Rivets on the left side of the ab/kidney plates: a total of six rivets with three on the ab and three on the kidney plate, equally spaced out along the depth of the armour and about 10mm from the edge. They may be painted white, or not.
  • Belt should be canvas or canvas covered instead of leather or vinyl.
  • The cod may be separated from the rest of the ab plate, but this cut line should not be visible from the front.
  • Hand plates may be sewn on to the gloves at five points equally spread out with 2 on the sides and 1 in the middle front.
