Unequal Technologies® was founded on a challenge on whether bulletproof armor could be made lighter and more flexible. After many years of research and investment, the result was a revolutionary composite used by the military, law enforcement and governmental agents to help reduce risk of injury. That multi-layer composite was tested under incredibly stringent guidelines issued by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the organization that certifies bullet-resistant armor. Alone or in a package, it help stop steel shot, bullets, frangible ammunition, frag, and shrapnel. Fortified with TriDur® aramid fabric (like DuPont Kevlar®), and other proprietary materials, Unequal not only helped to stop bullets, but also dispersed the impact energy of projectiles laterally, using a slightly thinner, lighter package than what soldiers were used too. OEM facilities and university science programs then verified the effectiveness of Unequal’s shock-absorbing protective gear, which is now backed by extensive testing from independent, accredited laboratories and over 100 U.S. and international patents. The technology developed to protect those that protect us... was then adapted for sports.
