The Desert Sandtrooper's Backpack is a necessity for duty and survival in the dry, virtually rainless and moisture-starved, desert of Planet Tatooine.
Jeff Romanoff TK0076, Commander of Garrison Carida, shows off his "SpacePack" brand backpack. This handsome commercially produced unit swings open to store items inside, but it may seem bulky and heavy to some users.

SANDTROOPER SNIPER KNEE PLATE
The Sandtroopers of the Star Wars Sagas differ in appearance from regular Stormtroopers in several ways. One of the more distinctive visual differences is the diamond shaped "Sniper Plate" worn over the left knee on the left leg "Greave" (lower leg armor piece). This item is not available from a commercial producer. Old Sarge Oberon TD124 therefore made his own Sniper Plate and he offers the following TUTORIAL and photos to assist others in making this item of dress peculiar to Star Wars Sandtroopers.
