This is extremely sophisticated technology, I don’t see it being repairable by a survivor with just normal tools and materials.
But the poor fit thing does seem weird, its why I only use it pretty rarely currently. I just carry it around and put it on as needed. Think I’ve only used it once, to distract a tank drone so I could get close.
Edit: Though thinking about it for a bit, this thing would have to be somewhat modular for repair/fitting purposes by the end user, such as the military. Otherwise the second one section was damaged it would become a million dollar piece of junk. I don’t see any procurement or design committee being willing to invest in something that expensive which gets bricked the moment someone looks at it funny. As a result, it might be possible for a survivor to cannibalize one hologram cloak to repair or fit another one.
I opened an item on github, lets see what @kevin.granade and @John_Candlebury think. Its really up to them. The poor fit may be intended to mimic bulkiness of the plates or something.
