Wasn't Dragon Skin rather thoroughly discredited shortly after it was first introduced? Or am I getting it mixed up with some other personal body armor scammer?
Yes, Pinnacle apparently fudged some of the credentials/ratings in order to get military contracts. That and QC problems got the armor booted from the military although it showed/shows great promise. The concept is apparently very good, but the implementation wasn't.
