Best brand velcro/hook and loop?

Recommended Posts

I am finishing up my calf armor for my first ever kit and I wanted to know what people have used for velcro on their kits. I think the velcro ANOVOS supplied me for the calf armor is too wimpy and I want to use a more industrial strength velcro. Any suggestions?

I haven't started my build yet, but this was what was suggested to me by a builder in my Garrison.

I'm thinking of going for Centurion, so I wasn't sure if I'd use it.

That's the stuff I used.  No issues at all.  I did add a little E6000 to the back to reinforce the adhesive.  Be sure to get the white stuff for your shins.

I've been using Country Brook Design velcro (or, technically, since that's the brand, hook and loop) for everything.  I buy it buy the 10 yard roll on Amazon for about $10, depending on what width.  

 

Regardless, I recommend E6000 them onto your surface because the sticky back, even industrial, will wear our with our repeated levels of stress and use.  I also just always buy sew in now, because the sticky back kind gunks up your sewing machine on sewing projects, and you're going to glue it all anyway.  Why have different types of the same width of velro?
