My velcro keeps coming of my Merlin vest at the top.
Is there special adhesive or should it be replace with new velcro.

Many Merlin and Pilot owners (myself included) have replaced the velcro connections on their vest with buckles. This conversion will make your operating a much happier experience. There's a very long thread describing and demonstrating buckle upgrades on DVinfo.net (including info' on a buckle upgrade that Tiffen offers. Not sure if the Tiffen version eliminates the shoulder velcro. I added a total of six buckles to mine (including two verticals in the back). Very snug.
