Sewing the adhesive Velcro hook and loop strips included with IceVents Body Armor Ventilation Pontoons is super easy. We STRONGLY recommend sewing for strenuous applications like infantry live fires, o-courses, and maritime applications like MIO, OTB, and VBSS.
First, place the adhesive loop strips toward the edge of the inside panel of your plate carrier so that when IceVents are installed, the edge of the IceVents are at the edge of the plate carrier to allow air to flow through the IceVents. The lines in the picture below indicate the sewing lines:
Here is an image showing where the stitch lines would be with the IceVents installed. Stitch the adhesive loop strips to the plate carrier and the adhesive hook strips to the PowerMesh side (small holes) of IceVents. Do not sew the adhesive hook to the side of the IceVents with the large holes. The image below is for demonstration/reference purposes only.
