    Depends what you have, Some people prefer magnets, buttons, or velcro because of armor type (plastic, fiberglass, resin, metal)

    I like velcro because you can remove the armor and store the vest. Some people think metal buttons take up less space than velcro and do the same thing.

    What kind of armor were you thinking

    Generally it's pretty hard to find glue to stick to trash can plastic, so I'd recommend some industrial strength velcro.

    I'm doing the whole trash can armor too, and I was thinking of using snaps, is that a good idea?
