    here's some commentary on the new Marine vest:

    But Army officials in November said the Corps' new vest offers the same protection as the last one and is two pounds heavier to boot.

    I don't doubt the Interceptor's ability to stop one round. The main distinctions of Dragon Skin are its multi-hit capability, its weight, its flexibility and its durability.

    The side-by-side tests will answer many questions.

      The previous test sounds like it was completely biased.  

      I just wanted to point out that I heard that there was a newer version of the trauma plate than the one that had initially gotten the bad press.  We still need public tests on these as well to determine their feasibility.
