    Knee elastic question

    What's the best way to attach the elastic bands behind the knee armor? Gluing both ends up tight to the plastic and just stretching it around your leg? Or velcro on one side? The latter seems like it wouldn't be as strong. What did you guys do?

    I added industrial strength velcro to both sides and it holds perfectly, never fallen off on me.

    I glued (Gooped) one end.. and put some thin peices of sintra over it... which created one of those type back pack strap clips.. where you can adjust.. but with the glue added.. basically bonded the two pieces. This only adds to the strength of it. Then I added some velcro to the other side.. and gooped it as well.. and mine work just fine.
