Funny. Just last night I was reading "The Great American Jetpack", about the history of the development of the technology. Chapter three covers the US military's first involvement with the development, and the proposals put forward by three contract bidders. One of the bidders included a fairly detailed description of the necessary harness; weight should rest on pilot's hips and legs when not flying; straps around chest to hold tanks firmly against back, etc.

Asterof , you are probably best off trying to contact local harness, saddle or bootmakers.
or possible the Kustom Kinky Leather House, but they are always pricy  Shocked

If you are concerned about burns, there was no mention in the book an any pilots suffering that injury. There was one incident where the pilot lost control, fell to the ground, and got a third degree burn to his leg, another incident where the pilot fell attempting to launch from an unsteady platform and broke his arm, and I think one other incident with an injury to a limb during tethered indoor testing (I'm going to have to check the book again and verify that last one). Those three were all that the author uncovered in an extremely comprehensive survey of the careers of virtually every pilot up until the book's publication in 2013.

Real world rocket packs and jet packs usually position the nozzles so that they direct the streams far enough from the pilots body to minimize the risk of injury. The packs that have been built by professional aviation companies have been very well engineered and very extensively safety tested before any human pilot left the ground. Hobby-built packs, a recent phenomena, have been very carefully constructed based on photographs and leaked plans of aviation industry packs, so they have the same safety oriented designs.

So, no, there was no mention is the book of ass coverings.
