PRLog (Press Release) - Mar. 14, 2008 - Warwick launched TurtleSkin Body Armor ballistic vests at SHOT Show 2008 (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show and Conference) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Trade professionals from the U.S. and countries worldwide witnessed the New Ipswich, NH, company’s newest entry for concealable law-enforcement protection.
TurtleSkin Body Armor signifies a new benchmark of performance in personal protection. This means better concealable protection above and beyond standard requirements. TurtleSkin SoftPlate™technology offers superior performance, safety, durability, and comfort, and is designed to provide the highest level of blunt trauma protection.
“Our design margins are what differentiate us from other relative products on the market,” says John Cronin, TurtleSkin Body Armor Product Manager. “Many armor models are designed to meet minimum weight requirements, even if that design comes very close to not passing safety standards for ballistic and blunt trauma protection. We run ballistic tests on pre-aged and pre-flexed armor panels to ensure that the final product offers the highest level of safety for the duration of its use.”
TurtleSkin technology provides comfort and flexibility while benefiting from the performance of specialized laminate materials developed by Warwick. This means that officers in the field no longer have to sacrifice protection for comfort. Each vest is custom tailored to provide outstanding fit for men and women. Advanced design elements include an innovative Neoprene® suspension system and lumbar support combined with proven antimicrobial and waterproof performance.
