Where'd you find the web gear? I'd do a search for it myself, but I don't know what the individual pieces are called.
That's nice....love the shield too.
sweet man!! how'd you manage to find everything for it??
Very cool, man! You've got the look down. Finally picked up my DVD copy of Capt. America today. Is everyone here ready for the Avengers? I know I am.

Sorry I haven't been replying in here, had some wackyness posting with my account for a bit as my password went limbo for a while.
Goggles: AN-6530 replicas at whatpriceglory.com
Paratrooper Helmet(or appropriate parts): atthefront.com has good ones, but so do a few others. I built a few of these to the CAP specs and have one left if anyone is interested.
Paratrooper boots: a few places have these for around $120ish, those made by SMS out of Mexico are very accurate and well made. Corcoran are a great US maker of these still and they were an original maker back in WWII as well.
Leggings: can find vintage easily, but for larger legged folk atthefront.com has new 4R and 5R also
82nd style reinforced paratrooper trousers:
- atthefront.com(nice fit, only slightly big once hot washed and dried, you need to request the leg straps in the correct canvas for $10 extra=$85 total)
- have whatpriceglory.com reinforced versions right now, these are $75 with correct 82nd details/leg straps already, pants are very long fitting in crotch rise and leg, so definitely need hot wash hot dry to shrink length, waist is close to correct.
Suspenders(web gear): Standard 1936 suspenders, atthefront.com
General Purpose Carrying Strap: atthefront.com (2 needed if doing early rescue full suspender style)
2 Compass Pouches: atthefront.com
1 Map Case Strap: atthefront.com
1 USMC Cartridge Belt: atthefront.com
Holster: WW2 .45 with leg tie: Whatpriceglory.com has nice natural leather to start.
Paratrooper Gloves: atthefront.com are cow, whatpriceglory say theirs are horse as originals
Shield: this is the official Marvel Replica that was available couple years ago for ~$350, but around $600-up now if you can find them
I changed over to a self model shield, and now also have a foam board replica of the movie shields from a friend.
I'll show them both here shortly...
Shirt: scratch built, thick stretch material in Royal Blue
Just to compare to the OG outfit:
A few more of a friend's outfit we put together... they liked it enough at the booth he got to hang out with the screen used gear, including handling the movie shield.
That's a great job. Well done.
Thanks a bunch!
Have a thicker foam board type shield like they filmed with added now, and a bit more weathering done, so my own outfit needs some update pics soon. Also gotta add the M3 knife to the leg still.
My brother as Cap at NYCC
I'm old....but I would have liked to have stuff like that when I was younger to wear to events.
Too old to wear a 1940's half belt jacket... I think not.
Sported the CAP at NYCC...
