    Quality of FTC POTA Bandoliers and Boots

    I was wondering what the quality is like on FTC’s Apes Bandoliers and Apes Boots.

    I think the bandoliers I ordered--for custom pirates--were of good quality.

        i think with any of the FTC product, the longer it has been around on their site and stored in their non-climate controlled storage facility, the more likely it will get brittle and deteriorate

          Agreed, quality so far remains good on these, and you may receive color variations in gray and brown… which I consider an added bonus.

          Be warned, the Ape-toed and Female boots are unfortunately very tight fits. You'll want a bowl of hot water handy or risk figure/gear breakage.

              Yes. I have a pair of brown Zaius glyph boots and a pair of green General boots. Very tight to get on but they eventually did with no issues. When it came time to remove the General boots, I had to put them in boiling water to get them off of my figure. In my opinion, the CTVT General boots are a better quality than the ones I got from Dr. Mego back in 2008.
