    If using Velcro, I recommend using the Industrial Strength (sticky-back) Velcro for the backside of the armor, and sewing regular Velcro to the vest. I did this for years, and never had any issues with it.

    I would also add snaps as well. I use both. When the glue on the velcro gets hot, it can fail.
