As cool as it might look, the pattern is VERY tiny, but the problem is with the material - it's leather-like.It's a little beat up. Definitely not as durable as the foam one I made for Mark VI armor.
There's a new hex pattern fabric coming from cosplayfabrics.com that would probably work a lot better.
Awesome! I like the liner idea. I may re-make mine that way.It works great! I spent six hours in costume, it was no more hot than what I am used to in my stormtrooper. I think the inner liner will help with the longevity being that the aero mat is not coming into direct contact with my skin or sweat.
Thanks, will definitely be investing in them.ah, I think it's the stony props hex visor, found here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/247993557/newhex-patternflexible-visors?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=stony props&ref=sr_gallery_24
