I read that skin equates to aprox 4 inches of muscle. I don't recall the reference. So does that imply that 16" penetration of gel block is about 16" - 4" equivalence skin = 8" depth into a person? Or is the reason of 4 layers of denim is to equate clothing and the skin impact area? I am 5'10" @ 200 Lbs. I am 11" thick from chest to back. Assume no bones or cartilage was hit, does the 16" gel depth imply a pass thru of my 11" chest to back?
