  1. Thanks so much for the input! I am planing on finding a few builds here and mainly following them, so thanks for the additional people to check out. I think I am going to alter my snapping and go the double snap route so am ordering the necessary supplies for that, but good to know they come with everything just in case.
  2. Thanks for the input and good point. I am planning to go the double snap route and so could just make both a nylon and elastic version.
  3. Thank you all for the input. As I wait for the everything to get here I am flip flopping back and forth. While I do want everything to stay in place while I move, I also want to be able to move semi freely haha. I think I will order both and use mostly nylon for the "torso" and then elastic for the "extremities". Would that be a decent compromise or is there still a lot of movement needed in the "torso" areas? Torso being the chest, back, kidney, etc. I also realize it really is personal preference and being that I am not that big of a guy, only 5'9 130lb, I may be able to get away with nylon.
  4. Thank you very much Joseph! I think I will probably do similar and go mostly nylon but may use elastic for the forearm, bicep and shoulders and of course the white elastic for the chest/back. PM sent for the shoulder strap elastic, thank you!
  5. Well I just put in a pretty big order with amazon for most of the tools I will need. What do you guys think? I am going to go with the double snap option for connecting and have looked at @justjoseph63 guide on how to do this, https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44617-snap-setting-101/, and am wondering if I could just buy all elastic instead of elastic and nylon? For reference I am about 5'9 130lbs and think the elastic will give a bit more for when I am moving in it? I also was looking at getting two strips of the 1/4" white elastic bands that will go around the shoulder strap
  6. Thank you that is helpful. I think you had sent this to me before, which I watched, but didn't quite understand it all then. I think I will look at going with snap strapping instead of the original way as it seems to be more sturdy and better for the armor.
  7. Yes, thank you! Put in my order to RS so now I prep all the tools and wait for that BBB!
  8. I finally made the decision and put in my order for a set of RS armor! I am super excited and can't wait for it all to arrive. While it is daunting and already a bit overwhelming, I would like to shoot for centurion right off the bat. This is my first time doing anything like this and will need to order pretty much everything tools wise. I have already had so much help in another thread when I was trying to decide which armor to get and am very thankful. I have a link to a post from justjoseph63 that shows all the tools I will need and am going to start ordering pretty much everyth
  9. I know this thread was started years ago, but I am looking at getting RS armor and I have looked at a few peoples build threads and seen that some of them say the armor is thin, which I know is good because it means less weight, but I don't want to get something that feels "cheap". I have heard that some of it feels as if it could break in your hands, they were specifically talking about the bucket. I would like a little weight to the armor. I had asked some questions in another thread and had been told RS is usually a bit on the thin side, but being totally new to this I don't fully understan
  10. Thank you for the heads up, I will make sure to do that!
  11. Thanks so much. That video was very helpful as well. Looks like buying it is a good idea, and then customize a little from there. Thank you.
  12. Hello, As the title says I am wondering anyones thoughts who have gotten and built with the RS strapping pack, or know of people who have. Was it sufficient and is it worth getting? I am guessing it is but just want to see what other peoples thoughts are on it. For reference this is my very first build and I am planing on getting a self build kit of ANH-S ABS. Thanks, Matt
  13. Thank you. I am pretty sure I am going to go with RS and am thinking of getting his snap pack. I will stock up on the others while I wait!
  14. Thank you very much. I am 99% sure I am going to go with the RS self build, which I think is just the hard armor but will confirm. I am going to make a separate post, but do you know if his strap pack is worth purchasing as well? Thank you for the tip on the boots. I will reach out to Imperial boots, do you know if they respond while "on break"?
