    So, good for a tac team, but that's about it. Looks like the ABA Xtreme for me then.

    They make dragon scale for police also, its way smaller than what soldiers wear. They are about the same weight and size as any normal vest, just able to withstand twice as much damage.
    Curious as to where you got these stats from. I went right to the Dragon Skin site and this is a cut and paste of what was on there site for there "police style" vest
    +++++
    Nominal thickness
    The SOV-2000â„¢ is the thinnest multiple repeat hit vest on the market and is from .796" to .858" in total nominal thickness.

    The SOV-2000â„¢ Level III, with our large standard tactical front and back panel configuration weighs 16.5 lbs. and varies depending on the level of coverage needed. The SOV-2000â„¢ is manufactured with a ceramic composite.
    ++++

    OK, my ABA is .16 in thick, this is about .8 in thick
    My ABA weighs 4 lbs, this weighs 16.5 pounds....
    I would NOT say that these stats are anywhere close to a "normal" vest. I have seen the videos, etc. for Dragon Skin, it's amazing stuff, just no where near what a "normal" vest would weigh or thickness.

    I'm waiting to see what the life expectency of the dragon skin for patrol is. If it's about 2 years as stated, I will be getting the ABA vest. I was just issued another vest by the dept, but the darned thing is so heavy and just doesn't move (stiff as thick cardboard).

    Ah yeah, I saw it too. I definitely want one . I dunno if I can spend $4K on it though =\. I thought I heard somewhere that they have to be replaced every 2 years or something, is that true?

    Yea, but it will stop .308 AP rounds. It even saved the torso of a dummy from a frag gernade(saw it on future weapons )
