  • Stab protection: Metal Flex Armor

    Ran across this recently while looking up other things: Flexible TurtleSkin MFA Panels. NIJ Level 3 edged weapon and spike rating.
    If it protects against needle "sticks," it might also deflect Taser probes. John Cronin, their Product Manager, may take a shot from a conducted energy weapon (unknown what make/model) next weekend to see if the material also provides a path to keep an electrical charge off the wearer's body. He said he's going to have the event videotaped.

    I also like the reduced backface signature (deformation; blunt trauma) they're "shooting" for on their ballistic armor. I'll have to inquire about what testing they're doing for contact shots.

    What do you guys think?

    I think id prefer chain mail/plate armor, that video test sealed the deal for me
