Hi All,

trying to figure this out from the CRL and lack of photos -

Quote:
Back panel is smaller and differently shaped than the front but should match front panel material


Anyone have a picture of the back of their approved flak vest?

Everything I've seen is just strapping though? Anyone have a back pannel?

Unfortunately there really aren't any clear pictures of the back of the vest. Everyone is just taking a guess. The best picture is actually from the video game Star Wars: Rebel Assault II where someone in a Y-wing pilot vest is standing facing away from the camera, but it's so small and blurry that you really can't make any details out.

Hello,
you can have an answer to your question by looking at this member who validated a very nice costume. Apart from the jumpsuit except the rectification of the collar, the pockets, and the pocket of the left arm, he all made himself

bye

Indeed, people have been approved with only straps down the back, but until there's a canon reference that shows the back of the vest, people are just taking their best guess at it.

The shot from Rebel Assault II makes it look like there might be a tiny squarish panel on the back but, again, the images from the game are too grainy to say for certain. The game is fairly old.
