Thigh Armor

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow TK’s

         I received my Armor from RS Propmasters and I have a question about the thighs.   Are the thighs suppose to be form fitting to the leg ?  or  is there suppose to be a gap between your thigh and the Armor  for movement ?    The gap is wide enough on either leg to fit my hand down inside.   If it’s suppose to be form fitting can this be tweaked to fit closer to my thigh ?  Unfortunately I can’t post pictures for some reason

Hey Peter, here is a great tutorial on how to post pictures using Imgur.

About the thighs, if they rotate, you can glue foam on the inside. Some pictures will help as well:duim:

I’m going to be getting together with a local garrison member in my area and he is going to help me with pictures and submit them so I know under is guidance and help we can get the armor up to snuff.       

 

I have ave to practice more because I can’t get this armor on by myself lol

Some space between is good, it allow moisture (sweating) to get out.

 

As Jayke said, just place some foam block to fix it from rotating. You might want more foam on the outside of your lower thighs and have the cover strips of the thigh and shin a straight line, look best that way.

I lined everything up straight but the upper thighs rotate after time ... I will try the foam blocks, I think that work best

Good tips here. I'm looking for this set as well from RS Propmasters. According to description, it might fit well to me but needs some adjustments for my buddy who's a little bit skinny. His order will be coming one of these days so we are finishing fast the installation of the rack and led light bar on his truck. Any tip of what kind of foam is good to use?
