    Oct 8, 2008, 4:59 PM - Preferred and Tested Methods #1

    I've read a lot on here about straps, velcro, and snaps for attaching the leg armor to the jumpsuit. Is there a consensus on which method actually works the best overall and is the most user friendly to work with?

    Since there have been no respones, I'll respond. The best tried methods in my opinion are:
    • Attaching your thigh armor to the backs of you holsters with chicago screws (Seeker discovered).
    • Using Line 24 Tandy snaps and 3/4"-1" elastic through slits cut in the knees of your jumpsuit for the knee armor & shin armor.
    • Using Line 24 Tandy snaps and 3/4" black elastic to attach the boot armor to your boots.

    Thanks mate! I could have figured something out of course but I'm a huge fan of accepting knowledge from others who have been down this road long before I got here.
