Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


Last night I noticed a real similar material on back of my motorcycle gloves. (they are new)
[sign in to see URL] you guys planning to make the undersuit out of this material? or putting it over the top your current undersuit?

*BUMP*

Any word back on the cordura mesh yet Hudson?

Also, just for reference sake, I noticed that there IS a variance in materials. Possibly because of flexibility purposes, they had to change it in certain areas.

*The knees*
Looks like more of a sporty, stretch mesh.
This one would probably be easier to find.

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

*The neck*
Perhaps they needed something smoother, and more comfortable? I'm not sure.. but the texture is definitely slightly different on the neck.

Wow, I noticed that on previous pics but wrote them off as seams. The different material is also under the arms and around the inseam as well, I believe .

Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


I'm just realizing NOW, for some reason, how close this suit is to the NOMEX suit before it was painted, in the fact that THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON!!! making this suit is going to be like making a hundred or so nomex suits...
I vote on the idea that we all try out hand at parts, and instead of making full suits, one person does the mesh, one does the cowl, one does the fiberglass, one does the carbon fiber urethane, one does the fins, etc.
We would have to REALLY agree on dimensions, though... i don't see us having this stuff screen accurate for a while... emoticon
but this is the suit to have. think about it-
no more being restricted by the heat or the weather, heck you could probably even drive in it, (without the cowl on hehe)...

Wow! Pretty awesome to see someone nail down the undersuit. I never thought I'd see that happen! I am very interested to see what Keith hears back from the folks at the jacket place. I really liked this suit from the beginning, but I was still in love with the Begins suit, but after a third viewing of the film I knew it would have to be this suit... Keep the updates flowing, guys!!!

Might be close enough. I just sent out about 5 e-mails to see if anyone has the specific fabric used. The company that manufactures it has yet to get back to me maybe tomorrow I'll hear something.

Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


15 bucks a yard to have your own suit made is pretty cheap. Think about if someone else made your suit. It'd be at least 4 times the 60 bucks it'd cost for the fabric. If I were to order an amount of mesh for making a suit I'd order about 4 yards, just to be on the safe side, but my closet full of fabric scraps (some more than others) suggests I'm notorious for over-buying fabric.

they have wholesale lots, too-
maybe one of us should buy it in bulk and we can all get it for cheaper?

Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


no matter the fabric I get, I'm gonna have to find a body suit patron, to sew it up. I don't think I'll be gluing pieces of it on a wetsuit. I'd rather make a suit out of this thing, and just put it on all at once...

Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


Sooo I was talking briefly the other day to a reputable source about the suit material for the TDK suit and apparently there are like 5 different materials and we aren't even close. Which I find hard to believe, because at least for the mesh the motorcycle jacket material looked pretty spot on... As for the other four materials, I have no frackin' idea... Although the person did tell me that the material was manufactured so the likelihood of finding it doesn't really exist. I personally will be trying to find a "close enough." But I really don't want to stick with my wetsuit, admittedly, cuz that damn thing is hot.

My idea for this is to use a spandex/lycra black suit base. Then put the mesh over the top of that.
As for the [sign in to see URL] girlfriend just bought a 06 Mitsubishi Eclipse tonight...
What do the seats have? Mesh. Autotmotive may be another option.

so are you worried that the weight of the pieces of armor might make the spandex sag a little? or maybe the mesh on top of it will help support the weight?

The e-mail I sent to the company has not been returned. If you want you can give them a call, just be sure to be specific on the fabric being a mesh. Let us know how it goes.
