I have a complete set of Spat's 1st gen armour (#184
) and while it's awesome and I love it, I think Chef's armour may be more hard-wearing and slightly cheaper. I picked up a set of Chef's helmet lobster plates a few months back and they are nice thick ABS. Spat's armour is quite a bit thinner, compared to these pieces. Warning:
I'm making 2 assumptions - 1) that Spat's armour is made of the same materials and in the same thickness's as it always has been (and only the design [strapping etc] has changed) and 2) that Chef's lobster plates are a good indicator of the thickness of the rest of the armour pieces ... worth msging Rob and getting word from the horses mouth me thinks.
