A lot has been discussed about the color and texture of the vest--that it is a multi flecked , grey woolen material and fairly rough. that sounds like my old army blanket. I have one of those Polish Army blankets from Sportsmans Guide, and its been covering things in the garage for twenty years. Which lead me back to SportsmansGuide

I found these. What is the consensus feeling on this selection?

There is also this offering:
http://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/4-pk-of-military-style-60x80-wool-blankets-gray?a=713463

As well as this, but i see a faint pattern in the face of the blanket from the way it is woven

Input welcome!

The B-wing pilot flak vest has specs of colors in it but I'm not sure about the A-wing pilot flak vest, all I know is that the vest is gray with white fibers. I don't know if it's the same material used for the B-wing pilot flak vest or not, it's hard to tell with the crappy pictures we have access to.

This is what I have for my revised B-wing pilot flak vest (picture below), but honestly, until we get more confirmation, for an A-wing pilot I would just go with a gray material with white fibers and no other colors. But if you want to use the material with other colors in it instead go for it, it wouldn't be rejected.

Ive seen photos of awing vests from the archives and they do have colored specs in them! So using a similar material to the one above woukd be accurate.

Ok, i may grab that disaster relief blanket, ive seen it, or similar, on other sites with other pictures, and it appears to have leftover fibers woven into it.
Ill also be on close watch for grey with white fibres for the group build.

Thanks again!
