    I’ll take some new pictures to show what I do, one piece just doesn’t fit my chest.
    I just tossed these on this partially assembled plate, I also use a T to land my shoulder straps a little further forward
    The T makes it a 4 piece harness, I use stiffer webbing on the waist belt and carry weight in Zeagle pouches.
    This is what I have on my heavy weight Freedom plate

    I put pads on my webbing and also a chest strap. not hard, you do need to unlace the wing to put both of these items on your wing. I will post pics later

    Home made, made with manufactured parts, or a complete purchased item? Lots of possibilities from the pretty to the grotesque.....

    My first chest strap was just some 1 inch webbing and plastic slide adjusters/buckle from hobby lobby. Just run the webbing through the slide (or 1 inch triglide), loop it around the webbing, and run it back through the slide. I sewed the non-adjustable side of the plastic buckle in for that chest strap, but my most recent chest strap just runs that free end through the triglide as well.

    When putting on the harness, I slide the strap up to the shoulder d-rings, and have never had it slide down while wearing.
