    Sep 20, 2006, 3:12 PM - Vest material alternative? #1

    Since Tackle Twill is so hard to come by, has anyone considered Canvas as an alternative?
    I mention this because everyone I have asked about Tackle Twill has told me that Canvas is the next closest thing.
    Is this correct?

    I would say “no” canvas is very dull looking and while you may get some that is the “correct” color, it won’t have the sheen that you need.

    I guess my next question is, what are some alternative materials that can be used?

    If your not going for "accuracy" canvas actually is'ent a bad alternative. It's heavy enough to hold your armor without sagging.
