Rick Baker (of bakerballistics.com) has improved his Batshield. Am I wrong for wanting one?
Robert – the head goes through the loop created by the QuikDon (on the shield’s interior photo after the jump). As you can surmise, the full loop is lifted when worn around the back of the neck, rather than clipping the two individual straps (to the female faster fasteners normally clipped to the two nylon straps that lead to the Quick Release/Spreader assembly (to which the two bungees are snapped into the quick release). Once standing, the shield hangs very high protecting the front torso. In the combat ready frontal photo, very little muscle is needed to hold the shield and fully loaded weapon as pictured.
