Our Two Cents

SAS-TEC armor is one of the newer armor brands on the market in the US. As of this writing, Scorpion has adopted this armor for use in their new designs. But the armor is sold separately so that people can retrofit existing armor if they like. The armor pieces are comparatively lightweight, very pliable and have sort of a soft “squishy” feel to it, which makes it very comfortable in apparel. The “feel” of the material feels a lot like the D3O brand to me. “Ordinary” CE armor inserts are a bit heavier and not as pliable. Even though this armor is pliable and flexible, it has the unusual property of becoming momentarily very firm when struck, which helps disperse an impact over a wider area of the body in a fall. This property, along with the comfort factor, makes this armor a “premium” product in my opinion. :: Paul, 08-08-14
