sitting down?

Recommended Posts

Go slow. Try it in front of a mirror first so you can figure out how you need to bend your legs. I cracked my cod a bit sitting, so don't be too surprised if you need to do some repairs.

I actually sat down for the first time at a troop last night. It was tricky & somebody had to help me up, but I did it! :D

I kept my legs spread out and was careful how I put my weight on my butt plate.

@ Donovan, my butt plate is seperated from the kidney plate. when i sit down, I go slow, and turn my thigh pieces outward a bit so I dont get pinched right along the inside of my legs. I put my armor on just a little while ago and sat on my couch to see if I could better explain it. I just take my time, sit up straight and be careful. Stools are better to sit on but they are not always there. Please understand that I am by means not an expert at sitting. I look just as uncomfortable as the folks in the above picture provided by paul. I have never tried to sit on the ground. Only something as in a chair or one of those padded foot rests that are actually seats.

Ok so the secret is the buttplate is seperate from the kidney?

Totally not

Jabob can sit down on the floor, and his kidney and butt aren't seperate

I think the key is having enough movement in your legs

I can sit cross-legged like a schoolkid in my kit

But I'm not really sure how

I just do it

Awesome idea, Dustin!  It might be a bit difficult to fit one of those in my armor bin, though... :lol:
