Specialist Chest Rig Webbing identified?

Recommended Posts

Hey folks! I just found something neat while doing research for my R1 TIE costume. Turns out, the Death Trooper appears to use the same style of Webbing as on the TIE! 

This popped into my eyes while looking through this blog post: 


Webbing on the TIE: 



And on the Death Trooper! 

Note the direction of weave, the five vertical lines and overall texture on the webbing. 


After doing tons of digging I believe to have found the source for this webbing. However, it appears to be available for bulk buy from China only. It is available in 1.5, 1.25 and 1 inch widths. I believe the 1 inch version also gets use on the TIE and Imperial Ground Crew. If the Webbing on the Death Trooper Chest rig is 1.5 or 1.25 I can't say for sure. 


I don't know about you lot, but I don't think I'll need 45 yards of this - maybe you can however? Hope this info helps you to get that extra mile of accuracy!
