Flak Vest Post Imp question
« on: Nov 10, 2020, 03:47 PM »
Making my flak vest, it is being closed on the sides. Would elastic with parachute clips be acceptable method of vest closure ? Would it have to be hidden?

Visible elastic on a flak vest would be a no no but you could use webbing to achieve the same result.

Ok thanks. Would the parachute clips be a problem? And would they have to be weathered

Parachute clips would have to be metal, or painted/coated so as to look like metal and weathered to the same level as the rest of the kit (no shiny new clips on beat-up armor)
