Flak vest material idea
« on: Jan 24, 2021, 12:58 AM »
Would canvas be acceptable for making my flak vest. Wasn't sure if I will need to put some filler material in the middle and another piece over the filler. So the outer layer would be canvas, filler, and inside would be canvas again

You can use a single layer of canvas if its heavyweight. Quilted is also common and a good way to use lighter fabrics. I used 12oz canvas for mine.
