    actually tries to get to the truth of the matter and finds out in detail what the Army-prescribed test conditions are and why they are that way, and what Pinacle has done, if anything, to correct the possible adhesive problem that caused the failure. There are new ceramic-metal bonding technologies that would never fail - I wonder if they have looked at these or if they have just decided to go with the guerilla marketing approach instead.

    The bottom line may be just that: the bottom line. It may very well be that the Army doesn't want to pay that much for a vest, but they can't say that out loud and so hae resorted to sandbagging. We shall see (we hope).
