The Elite Defender Riot Suit’s contour-molded shell with impact ridges combined with the shock absorption characteristics of polyethylene plastic effectively disperses the impact of blows, jabs, and projectiles. The inner portion consists of 1/2” EVA foam sections cut into small rectangles and then sewn into a full torso/back protective shell with layers of polyester mesh and brushed polyester for ventilation and comfort. An added layer of polyethylene plastic on top of each small rectangle provides additional blunt force reduction. The less-vital areas of the shins, arms, shoulders, and thighs are protected with polyethylene plastic and dense foam for blunt force protection. The suit is primarily designed to withstand blows and absorb the shock of thrown projectiles.
