Backpack is mounted to the back plate. Also I moved the suspenders to conect at the front of the sholder straps. I think this will help prevent the torso from riding up.

Everything is weathered other than the helmet.

This has been a really long and hard project but I'm happy with how it looks. I think the backpack really exceeded my expectations.

One thing I noticed. Shouldn't the neck area on the pauldron be white also? Maybe some leather paint could fix that.

I noticed as well. I wish they had attached it to the bottom and not the top like a regular pauldron. I've debated glueing a piece of white fabric to it

So I just wanted to show off. This is how it breaks down for easy transport.

This is a size comparison to my Heavy Weapons Trooper pack. It's a little smaller. 

Weighs about 10 pounds which is not bad. I think I can get it even litter by replacing some of the wood parts with foam.

A few people have pointed out that the pauldron is inaccurate. The conection pieces should be attached underneath and have white material on them.

I cut them off

I decided to go with a thinker fabric (probably has a name but I don't know it) so that it wouldn't fray and I count just glue it down and not worry about sewing through the think leather.

Also decided that instead of trying to patch the holes I would sew along the line and make it long, hopefully making it look intentional.

I used the original holes for the rivets.

And after a little weathering looks somewhat like it should.
