Excellent, Blue Banshee Leader is great - will take a look at fabrics but this is a project we are taking our time on, but getting parts as confirmed, the fabrics and colors are after the hardware and belt&arm tools/hose barbs!

Hardware arrived, noted the parts, if there are thoughts let us know.

Took a wild guess at the hardware on the back of the vest, it seems to match the photo.

Photos courtesy of the Star Wars Databank for Paige, and the Star Wars TLJ Visual Dictionary for the Resistance Bombers. The vests also appear with other resistance forces - which is good in our opinion...

I would actually hold off. Those have urethane coating on them. Do we know how safe to wear this fabric is...? I would suggest we rather get an uncoated cordura and get it special dyed. I have a person here in NYC. We can go in on a big roll together if need be - but would not be so quick to wear cordura that is coated. The original resistance pilot cordura was uncoated and special dyed as well...

I'd probably chip in.

Also found this on The Star Wars show the other day. The actor is a friend of Rian Johnson's, (and has the hose connector and lights) so its def TLJ. Also shot of inside of helmet

I just went fabric hunting and got a sample of this fabric. While its not nylon, but the overall texture feels and looks good. And its uncoated so it can be dyed. Will try dying it with my left over dye. Definitely will be something more comfortable than the 1000D Nylon Cordura.

What do you guys think?
