VPD gives us a completely new alternative in the traditional trade-off situation between flexibility and real protection. Due to the ability to transform from soft to hard when needed and the extreme shock absorption properties, you no longer have to chose between freedom of movement and proper protection.
Offers better flexibility in cold temperatures and has an increased tear resistance. To further improve anti-penetration properties, the back protector has a durable thermoplastic polymer sheet integrated for extra protection in the spinal area. The VPD compound is highly dampening, soft, comfortable and adapts to create an individual fit. When exposed to impact, the material stiffens and has an extreme absorption of energy. This material is also multi-impact resistant extending the lifetime of the protection. All this gives you unsurpassed levels of comfort and safety.
