No......A "cabal" of paid "inspectors" intentionally skewed results, test parameters and sabotaged the competition (Dragonskin) so their buddies would get the contract. These fuckers should be tried for treason, and shot.
I am the object of criticism around the world. But I think that since I am being discussed, then I am on the right track.

Take a look at this thread on DragonSkin over at professionalsoldiers. Dragonskin did fail, fair and square, when heated to the kinds of temperatures you would expect from leaving it in a car in a hot environment for an hour or two, and cooled to room temperature, the glue failed: http://www.professionalsoldiers.com/for ... hp?t=14523

This is not to say that the tech is lousy, or that they haven't fixed it by now.

I'm not going to repeat what has been said, as this subject has been posted over and over on the internets, but when your "testers" are working for the competition, I mean...c'mon.
