We've partnered with Forcefield to provide high quality, award winning armour constructed from Nitrex Evo®, a unique high tech shock absorbing material that can disperse energy evenly over its surface whilst remaining flexible and comfortable, the armour also features RPT (Repeat Performance Technology) which ensures that there is no loss of performance even after multiple impacts. Forcefield armour is heat activated so it moulds to the body shape. It is lightweight, flexible, perforated and breathable through a multi layered construction.
All of our jackets come standard with shoulder and elbow armour and the option to purchase back armour separately.
Black Arrow jeans are made with Armalith denim containing 33% UHMWPE, a space technology fiber! Compared to Kevlar®, Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthylene (UHMWPE) is 5 times more resistant to abrasion, 40% lighter, 2.5 times stronger and lasts 10 times longer when exposed to UV.
