    When coating foam armor builds what do you recommend?

    - Plastidip seems to be a quick and very easy approach but does it crack in areas of high movement (elbows, under the armpit, etc)

    Leaning towards plastidip because it comes in aerosol cans while the latex route will require an aircompressor and gun..

    Not to mention cleaning latex out of said gun is a MASSIVE pain in the *.
