    Armor Attachment Idea...

    Hey guys! I was thinking about armor attachment problems and came up with an idea. Has anyone ever tried to sew a button to a piece of cloth and then attach it to the the back of the armor very securely and then make button holes in the vest? That would be relatively simple and pretty fast? All you'd have to do is button it on, considering you make the button holes in the vest smaller so that it won't fall out...

    I used to use snaps on my old armor. I have since converted to velcro and never looked back. I haven't had a single problem with armor coming off at all. And even if it does, so what? It just velcros back on!

    I hate velcro. I love snaps. I never have to worry about snaps coming off and velcro dies after a while. Velcro also makes that nasty noise when you move around.

    but snaps are fun and usually involve a hammer, epoxy, and a xacto knife. 3 of my favorite toys
