TDK Undersuit fabric suggestions and links.


The Undersuit material for TDK has... more or less, been quite the quandary for many of us. As to the origin, or what it resembles.. we've guessed that it's like what is used on backpacks, or shoes. Or in other cases, car seats.

So, here's what i've found so far.
We need to be looking for AIR MESH FABRICS.

My results have only brought me thus far. I'm still looking for the proper colors and other potential distributors.

Basically... I'm looking for a reliable source.
I think the pattern on this one is pretty close.. But obviously it's white. I can't find the pattern seen here in grey. Could it be dyed?
I WANT TO GET THIS FABRIC RIGHT!

Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


The stuff shown is 100% polyester, so I would say the average person will not be able to dye it at home.

Get the ]Athletic Mesh here.

sorry, doesn't look close enough.

Also, there is a way to dye polyester. It involves rubbing alcohol vs. water, and using an iron to seal the color.

I was walking by a co-workers desk that rides motorcycles and saw exactly what the undersuit is made of as part of the jacket. see the link above for appearance. Now we just need to find out where this is available in bulk.

Woah, sorry.... I'm not buying that collins gate stuff. It looks odd, not to mention, Why would they use a mesh that they would have to layer on top of another undersuit?
That's a bad idea in general. Too much risk for puckering. If you look at the neck on TDK suit, the mesh and the underlying material are all part of the same weave. Otherwise you would see much more material puckering, or sliding.

I will not be buying a mesh that i have to double layer.
BTW that motorcycle jacket stuff looks off as well. The mesh is too big, and it looks too rough.

Just in case you forgot what the undersuit fabric looks like....

That looks pretty darn close. Nice find. My only concern is the size of the holes. Difficult to tell from a picture like that if they are approximately the right size.

I think we may be left to find something "close" as I understand the screen used stuff is not off the shelf material.

Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


I'm seeing two layers of fabric: the mesh that everyone's been looking for, and a ribbed material beneath that.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Those are definitely two layers, and they certainly cannot be a part of the same weave. The material underneath can't be seen most of the time and appears to be there purely to enhance the depth of the mesh, as the translucent armor plating only replicates the (unstretched) mesh pattern (hence the brick appearance).
