Straps and Buckles Recommendations for Vest Modification
Posted 21 October 2008 - 12:13 PM
I found straps and buckles but there are several options to choose from.
First is the type of material the straps are made of. There is: Cotton, Cotton with nylon core, Polypropylene, Nylon, Ultra abrasion-resistant nylon, Polyester, Polyurethane-coated polyester, Nomex, and Kevlar. What sort of properties should I look for in the strap? What width should the straps be? How much length do you think I need?
The next question is how to secure the straps/buckles to the vest itself. Do you sew them on, use rivets, grommets, or some other method to fasten the straps?
Thank you so much. Any other tips/advice/warnings would be greatly appreciated as well.
