So you want a surplus German flak vest.
Congratulations, you’re awesome.
See below the fold for pictures
Pictures can be clicked for high-rez details.
First pic: Left is a basically “closed” vest in the wearing position. Right is pulled open. Right vest is also my “double-vest” with double panels scavenged from another vest.
This is the single vest, with the kevlar panel removed. I’ve also thrown a rifle plate (not included) into the picture.
And this picture shows the rifle plate in position to be attached. I could sew it into place here, or somehow adhere a pouch onto the back of the kevlar panel, and then reinsert the panel into the vest easily enough.
