Produced by Pinnacle Armor, the newly designed Dragon Skin Body Armor is said to be lighter and more protective than any of its predecessors. The new Dragon Skin body armor is the first personal armor to be capable of stopping rounds delivered from an AK-47 without plate inserts. The dragon skin has silver-dollar sized armor plates composed of silicon carbide ceramic which overlap like fish scales. This allows much more flexibility than other body armor.
Although the dragon skin body armor has proven itself in many tests, as pointed out at Defense Tech, some professionals are critical of whether the armor works as advertised.
