Hey peeps, chanced up the Techn Armor Raincoat which was on offer.
I paid $79.90 for the jacket which is inclusive of the armor pads.
I got it at their showroom located at Blk 541 Jurong West Ave 1 #01-1046C.
Was looking for a armor jacket so i took a closer look and bought it today as the price was quite attractive IMHO.
I got the yellow to increase visibility and they do come in other colours like red, blue and black.
This being my 1st armor raincoat/jacket so do bear with me if there are things which i overlook or inaccurate.
1st impression was that it being a raincoat, it would be quite hot to wear during the days and will prob defeat the purpose of being armored up during the day.
At the same time, it is water proof thus i will remove my rain coat and just put my rain pants in my box in case of rain.
However, the jacket has air vents that is said to let air through and would be the same as wearing a windbreaker.
Inside there are armor pads for the elbows, shoulders and the back. The pads are not plastic, they are more of a impact cusioning PU pads which absorbs impact.
More importantly, they are from Knox which are from UK and they are CE certified.
The pads are held in place by pockets sewn in the internal netting of the raincoat and the elbow pads are furthur held in place by adjustable straps at the arms.
An interesting feature would be the stomach straps or "tummy" straps. This allows the jacket to be adjusted to fit properly so ensure the back armor will be in the best position to protect my back. Best suited for "pot bellied" ppeps like me.
Their sizes range from XS to XXXL.
The jacket is actually designed by a fellow Singaporean and the pads are from Knox from UK.
I will be updating this thread as i use it and keep up peeps update.
