    I saw this on Future Weapons. Search it on youtube to see the vids. They tested this thing by setting it ONTOP of a frag grenade. It held up without a single penetration. If it can take that, it's getting 5 stars!

    If this product gets to be the new standard in body armor, the big question has to be..Whats the financial cost? True... A human life can't be measured in dollars... but any administrator will ask the price before even considering it... I saw the future weapons episode as well... Layers of protection like roof shingles... It took a hard beating and did not allow any penetration...

    Any thing that can perform under extreme test as well as this vest did can only get the highest rating. Being in the military I agree that I would want this if I was going back over.

    This is 21st century tech. They shot the vest with .223 in fully auto mode, ak47 in fullu auto mode and with 9mm in fully auto mode, then they took this SAME SHOT VEST in the desert. This vest was placed on a military frag grenade with a large rock holding it down. It exploded and NOTHING CAME THROUGH!!!!! Now there is nothing else to be said. Plus it looks cool and properly named.

    I have seen reports on this vest on several level, I have a friend that managed to get his hands on one and is wearing it in Iraq. He have stated is not heavy, comfortable, and not too hot. On "Mail Call" they shot it up and I was impressed at the close distance that the rounds from the rifles (5.56mm and 7.69x39mm) didn't go through it! I would like to replace my current vest with one!

    As so many of you have said, this product was shown on Future Weapons. This is outstanding technology and would be a great addition to any LE's gear. If the price is right, I would buy this product myself, without the department's monitary help.

    Have these received NIJ approval? Saw all the articles & show but also heard some problems withstanding heat. The bonding was relaxing during exposure to sustained heat. We cannot buy anything that does not have that approval.

    From all I have seen and read this is an amazing product, but they have run in a prob. in the justice dept. From what I understand there is an issue with it lasting untill the warranty expires. On thier side, it is a 6 year warranty.

    I could wear this lovely piece of much valuable equipment 24/7, even taking a shower [not]. It was, eventually issued to us in Iraq and quickly became an asset. You could ask the ones of us that made it back, a little damaged.

    My hat goes off, and my heart swells proudly and at the same time sadly for my fallen brothers, whom gave the ultimate sacrifice.

    I don't own one but would do anything to get it. Currently only available in the SOV-2000 level, as the SOV-3000 is only being produced for the U.S. Military, it is by far the most amazing body armor ever created. There was a review on the Military Channel with Future Weapons as well as a review done by the good old Gunnery Sgt., R. Lee Ermey. This vest took multiple hits from an M4 Carbine in 5.56 Nato, an AK47 in 7.62x39, as well as an MP5 in 9mm, in full auto bursts I might add. After absorbing round after round to the tune of 20+ direct hits, this vest did not fail. What was even more amazing was the final test performed where the vest was strapped to a dummy and weighed down over a live grenade. The grenade exploded tearing the front carrier off and left a decent depression in the front of the vest with NO PRENETRATION TO THE INTERIOR! Unbelievable! A must have. Only 2 issues. Cost is pretty steep at anywhere from $2200 to $5100 depending on size and shape of the panels. Brochures are available electronically if you email Pinnacle Armor directly from their website. Seems no discount is available for LE. Also, the armor has recently lost its approval for DJS/NIJ funding due to insufficient evidence supporting its serviceability during the stated 6 year warranty period. That is also addressed on their website and should hopefully be resolved soon. Buy it if you can! It can save your life.

    The only question is how do I sell my Administration on it? I'm still wearing an older vest that doesn't fit quite right hoping it will work if needed. I'm also hoping that I never have to find out. Has anybody heard about the weight and flexibility of the vests? Also, it would be great if the company would do some sort of public relations campaign by assisting LEO's to purchase them on their own if their departments aren't willing to foot the bill.

    To heavy and falls apart easily. A police officer might be able to use it, if the weight doesn't bother him, but its to heavy for a ground pounder. Tests showed it could not withstand heat (the inside of a parked car for example), and failed if exposed to gasoline (more applicable to soldiers but still a LEO might become exposes to gasoline in the line of duty).

    I think this deserves more than five stars actually, because it saves so many lives, and can take so much pounding from anything being thrown in its path. I mean if it can take a granade hit, and not penetrate, then, it can take anything. I know i would wear it at all times if i owned one.

    Amazing product that has the ability to counter the "upscaling" that officers face on a day to day basis on the street. Even though the government has rejected this product, there has to be a reason why the government has ordered the level 5 grade classified. This product will work and from all accounts (including surveys, reports, and articles) this grace...this dragon skin; it is the answer to date.

    This may be among the best body armor that has been produced. Yeah, it may be able to withstand a hand grenade at point blank range, but will you? The problem of blunt force trauma will ALWAYS be there.

    Anyone know what kind of shock a hand grenade puts out? You military folk to. I would be surprised to see anyone survive laying on top of a hand grenade, no matter what kind of body armor you are wearing.

    For those large caliber rifle rounds, the vest may stop it, but it would be the equivalent of getting hit in the chest with a sledge hammer.

    There is alot of controversy behind the product, but it does seem to be able to take a beating. I viewed the mail call episodes and also the future weapons episodes and it can definately get abused and still get the job done. But I'm still not sold. The military does have a lot of politics that decide the purchasing of armor so that might be why it hasn't caught on with them. I guess for me it's one of those things when you start talking about a new product. Now if a buddy of mine wore it and it saved his skin then I'll wear it no questions.
    The last price tag I have seen was well over $1000. For those who have asked.
    That's just my 2 cents

    I was fortunate to get this product for a very large discount. I ended up paying just over $800 after shipping. Because I am starting my own ballistic line, I did a trial on this product. It withstood just about anything I threw at it. Regular military flaks are only rated for a 9mm. Sapi plates are only rated for 7.62, but I found Dragon Skin can take the same payload, and more times at that. Amazing product of the future.

    I currently have a concealable Dragon Skin Armor here in Iraq. It is very comfortable and perfect for plain clothed operations here. There is concern with the glue keeping the armor in its original state during the extreme heat conditions. I haven't experienced that, but I don't get to wear the dragon skin as much as I would like.

    This was featured on the Military Channel: Future Weapons TV show, and was hosted by a former Navy Seal. This vest was found that it's not as good as it looks. It is pretty much a light weight compact fiber vest that is supposed to absorb shock and slowly stop the bullet from passing through. It does not stop all automatic rifle ammo. This is a very good vest for handguns, and SMG's, but not all automatic weaponry is exempt from this vest.

    Definitely sounds like a exceptional piece of equipment. I don't know about ballistics protection, as flexible body armor would give in the event of a directly adjacent explosion, thus pushing in and compressing your organs :/ hell I dunno, just brainstorming.

    Yes this is great body armor, its light and the strongest around. how ever there is a reason we dont use this in the millitary, and its not b/c of the price. Dragon Skin brakes down in a hot climate, so if you are wareing this in iraq, ware its a 140 degreese, this is going to fall a part and not worth the use in a combat situation. for this, i give it only 3 stars

    This is the best body Armor on the market hands down. I have worn a lot of body armor in my time from the old flak vests to interceptor to spears RBAV system. Dragon skin is by far the most comfortable and affords the same if not better protection. I would wear this in theater everyday and twice on Sundays. Thumbs up!!

    The military is crazy for not letting us use this in the field bought my own not too long ago and it is amazing and can'twait to transfer to the civil world to use it full time. This over my issue galls brand, not that galls doesn't work this fits better and feels much better plus I can bend over if I need to were the other one limits my range of motion.

    The best armor on the planet. Dragonskin has great reviews and tons of videos proving its protective qualities. Go to liveleak.com and type in "dragonskin". There are several videos of soldiers praising Dragonskin!

    compared to a similar rated vest it is comfortable and not so bulky. We bought the base model for around 2,500 and it still has more coverage than just a plate

    The product is a great one and should be put back on the NIJ list and bullet proof grant system. Same old polotics as ussual. We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to train and maintain an officer yet we complain about 2500.00 that will keep them safe

    turned out to be one of the biggest shams in tactical history. All the non professionals who sit in front of the tv watching Futureweapons oogled this one...turned not to not be the business.
    Never listen to anyone who has not actually USED a product on here....

    I've also heard some bad reviews on this vest. The vest can take a direct hit, but not from an upward angle. I've seen the video's where the guy is emptying mag after mag at it. But if it cant take a round from every angle, then it may need to go back to the drawing boards.

    I used this type of vest for a short time in Iraq before they shifted use to a heaver model, it was light weight and cooler then the heaver vest and provided the same protection

    Wonderful vest. It will save lives. It can take practically anything you can throw at it (including a military spec fragmentation grenade and a claymore mine). This armor's design is based on over-lapping ceramic plates (which is how it gets it's name, the over-lapping plates resemble scales of a reptile). This same ballistics technology is used to protect the M1A1 Abrams tanks and Bradley fighting vehicles from small arms fire.

    Safty is an oder, for any officer, This product can become more affective, if all officers start wearing them wheal on duty, and off duty. STAY SAFE, your adoults. Do I have to say stay safe over 10 times?? { STAY SAFE, and BECAREFUL.}
