I love this armor but I hate the Velcro seams on the calf sections.

I saw a comment on how some folks are replacing this with Bra Hooks and White Elastic.

Anyone here have experience with this modification?

Thanks.
Reich

Did you check over on whitearmor.net? I can't remember who has it in the GWS, I'm pretty sure that everyone that I know (or can remember) went the velcro route. UKWrait has a thread up on that website (https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/35086-ukswraths-anovos-tk-build/?page=25&tab=comments#comment-470387) that should help clarify.

Not sure if you had checked that out yet or not.

Yep saw that thread, I'm going to attempt it. I was just wondering if anyone local had done it yet?

I have also wondered how they would hold up long term with the hook and loop since the Anovos armor is a little thinner than some of the other makers' armor.

That is my biggest concern. Drilling the holes and If those holes would crack under pressure once you apply the hooks.

Maybe I can replace the full strip of Velcro that comes with the armor into 3 smaller sections or tabs, Might be easier than risking the holes and should be easier to put on.

I'll have to think on it.

Yeah that is mine too. I guess it just depends on how evenly you spread the weight amongst those clips.

I just used some industrial strength outdoor white velcro (actual Velcro brand) and stuck it on there and it hasn't moved since then. I can't remember if I glued them down though, I don't think I did though. That Anovos velcro is crap compared to the actual Velcro brand stuff. I only used the Anovos strapping and velcro if it was stitched to the elastic or webbing and any velcro that was glued on by Anovos I split apart and CA glued or E6000'd them together and it made it perfect.

Yeah I think I'll just swap out the Anovos strips for better Velcro sections and see how that works first before drilling holes. 8)

I have a set of AP and my shins never stay closed for long using Velcro so I end up using white duct tape to hold them shut. The actors in the movies used white gaffers tape so I do too! Hahahaha!
