Snowtrooper Chest Armor

The Snowtrooper Chest Armor is a little complicated. There is just a lot of little things that need to be done to it.

This is a close up of the actual armor used in "The Empire Strikes Back".
I took this picture at COSI 2007.

This is my Snowtrooper Chest Armor. It has not been weathered yet.
I did not add electronics to the three red buttons. I do not think it is necessary.

For the backpack straps to attach to the chest armor I used strap anchors. The ones I am using are for a boat.
The backpack strap just slides under and folds over and closes with velcro. Simple and functional.
