    I originally tried that method and almost ruined everything...it was a nightmare. I ended up bolting my armor through the vest without a back-side inner armor piece. It's held up great.

    What happened to make it all go sour . . . I'd like to know since this is the method I was planning on using.

    Well, let's see, I made the mistake of using too much glue that didn't stay and it slipped and ended up getting on me and my vest. It was a nightmare! I ended up gluing myself...to myself.

    There's several ways to attach the armor.

    Easiest and quickest is industrial velcro.

    Or, epoxy glue snaps onto the armor, paint 'em red to mark the spots on the vest where the opposite snap goes.

    Some like a variant of this method- 1/4" bolts and nuts, done the same way as above.

    Also powerful earth magnets have been used with success. They are quite expensive however. Not the same type as found in Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.

    Hope this helps!

    take care,
