    Excellent job figuring that out man!!!!

    I received my housing and mount today as well. Promptly added it to my pack. I also added some carabiners, a light, and an old canteen I had. I still plan to purchase the mattress pad, some rope, paracord, and a Weyland-Yutani patch.

    Picked up a jacket as well on Ebay, which I can wear during the day as well (since an anorak probably won't suit me otherwise). However, I just looked and the seller contacted me. They changed the freaking color, so it's not exactly what I would want anymore. Nothing is ever freaking simple.

    Right now, I still need to decide what color hat I want, and then purchase a new drop-down holster, and a flashlight. Maybe another jacket now too. ><

    Okay, finally got my Daniel's style flashlight pouch finished. 3 different colors of nylon and a silver snap. Why? I have no idea but that's what they did so that's what I did. Very pleased with the results.

    Thank you! It's finally starting to look like a Covenant utility belt!

    I figured out the under belt today too. It was a British PLCE web belt. They cut the buckle off and added 2 strips of webbing and some rivets. I did exactly that and then threaded it onto my belt using the 'D' ring hangers as keepers. Then I stitched down the one end so it can't move. Now the left side droops down just like theirs. I'm calling this belt DONE!

    Hey all just joined the site. My first effort to get into wardrobe recreation.. I'm in love with Covenant/Prometheus, especially style wise. Anyway, been through every page here and really good work everyone. I have a small stack of gear accumulating at the moment! Patches, hats, jackets.
    I wanted to post these gloves while I'm here and have the link up on my phone
    I think they're in the " definitely decent enough" category and not to pricey

    Welcome to the party pal! Even closer than those gloves and about the same price are the Voodoo Tactical gloves mentioned in earlier posts.
    I hope you have fun recreating the outfit and if you have any questions just ask. We've figured out quite a bit so far.

    I found the Blackhawk SOLAG kevlar gloves for $65 I think. But I think the soft knuckle version in coyote brown may be discontinued as I only found one place that had them in my size. If you can't find the Blackhawk gloves then the Voodoo gloves are the next best option.

    Mechanic, excellent work as always!

    And yes, the VooDoo Tactical knock offs can't be beat for $30. I presume the soft solags were replaced with the knuckled version...or production had a huge glove budget and the opportunity for a shopping spree. LOL.

    I dyed the patch on my belt with dark brown dye and it turned black & grey which was weird but it looks good! Thanks again for making the patches. And thanks for the stickers too.
