Which pieces do you refer to?  All of the upper armor plates mount to a flak vest/carrier vest.  The only plates that would "mount" to the suit would be the lower armor, but most of that is held on with straps around the legs.

I'll assume your question is how to mount the plates to the vest.

There are numerous methods.

Velcro, snaps, magnets, bolts. i've even heard of someone gluing the plates directly to the vest.

"Best" is all in the eye of the user. My current kit uses velcro. I find it to be very secure and holds up to moving around. Other guys in my clan use snaps and swear by them.

Buy sticky for the armor, sew-on for the vest.  Don't use sticky on the vest, it won't stay on it's own, and NEVER sew sticky velcro...it's nearly impossible and will break needles on a sewing machine.
