So it took me a lot longer than I thought to get around to getting these plates done. Simple fact is I have been swamped with helmet orders that I haven't really had time to sit down and sort out my own kit.
Fortunately, when I came back from a troop the other day, my Sintra was waiting for me.
I've decided to go a little experimental with this new vest, simply because the Lady Sewforus vest is beautifully made and I don't want to ruin it by sticking velcro tabs all over it.
No, this time I will mostly be going the way of rare earth Magnets.
Yes, Magnets sunk into the plate and then another magnet being placed behind the vest to keep the plate still.
Anyhoo, here are the plates cut and (initially) bent.
They are next to my current plates, which still have life in them, but will become a back up set.
I also have a backplate.
My current plan is to segment the collar and the backplate for better movement, if I am stuck kitting up alone.
Comments, suggestions and questions all happily accepted!
