Almost there....

Great start. The weather on the helmet and pauldron is looking really good.
You might want to try to bring the chest armour down a bit over the ab plate though.
Nice field pack!

Thanks, I’m using the bracket system and that’s as low as the chest will go. Maybe if I use longer elastic it’ll drop lower. The field pack was a fun build, really enjoyed that.

Make longer straps that connect the front and back plates over your shoulders and it'll allow more clearance.

I had them longer originally but then there was too much room between my body and the front/back plates. The chest usually sits fine over the abdomen, not like in the photo. I’ll keep an eye on it though. Thanks!

I know you're using the original strapping method but you can add some snaps on the inside and use some elastic. The tension will help keep it in place

I agree with Airborne Trooper with the elastic.  I have an Anovos TK kit.  It came with wide elastic straps for this area, but used velcro.  I used the straps that came with the kit, but made snap plates, glued them in with E6000 and put snaps on the elastic straps.  It has been great.  The elastic has some "give", keeps my chest plate pulled over my ab plate, and seems to help pull the ab plate up a bit.  I'm happy with this configuration.

Here's a pic of the snap system:

And with the snaps on:

Good luck with the final steps!  BTW, your pack looks great.  Love the shade of blue/gray that you have.

Thanks guys, I think I’ll try that out. I’ve got all the leftover Velcro from my sons Anovos kit we never used. Glad you guys like the pack, it’s a Crashmann kit. The grey is the battleship grey I got from amazon, I like it better then the slate grey I previously used. Thanks again for the help guys!

Also happytrooper, love the videos, we started the dlt19 but didn’t finish it yet...
