  • Zylon Vests...again?

    I don't know if this has been posted yet but the San Diego Union newspapaer had another article regarding the vests today. It essentially said that the Fed's tested the Zylon vests and they failed to stop rounds it was designed to stop 60% of the time.

    ** Even in the vests that did stop the round, 91% of the time the officer still would have received blunt force trauma that was not acceptable.

    *nod* it's on the front page here... http://www.officer.com/article/artic...ion=9&id=25636

    From the looks of it...this fed investication/test supports the position taken by Second Chance...that being the zylon material was defective regardless of the way the vests were made.
