DESCRIPTION

The slim-fit vests cover the groin/pelvic area, torso, and neck with a form-fitting piece of armor which is both extremely lightweight and does not restrict movement in any way. Able to protect the wearer from blasters and other plasma-type weaponry, standard lightsabers and other lightsaber-type weapons, melee weapons including vibroblades, acid attacks, as well as from kinetic weapons and damage such as nearby detonations, shrapnel, concussive injuries, etc., the Red Vest is an ideal armor for anyone looking for peace of mind against the gamut of commonly-used weapons throughout the galaxy.

 

So named for the reddish color gained by the Norris root dye, the Red Vests are made from finely and densely-woven songsteel filaments, verpine fiber, glistaweb silk, and powerful duraplast thread, all of which is treated with Malreaux lacquer and absorbital. Taken individually, each of the materials used would provide excellent protection against one or more threats, but working in concert, the result of this patented weaving and treatment process is an extremely durable protective vest able to shield the wearer from a host of potential threats against them. Each vest sold is tailored to the wearer, cut so as to not hinder or obstruct movement in any way, and given the ‘feather-weight’ of the garment and it’s form-fitted tailoring, it can be worn beneath normal clothing or even under other forms of armor.

 

However, nothing is without its limitations: Red Vests do not protect the wearer against Force abilities (including Force sabers), extreme temperatures, electrical damage, or sonic attacks, and of course, the Red Vests only offer protection to the areas actually covered by the garment. However, against most common weapons and threats encountered across the galaxy, the Red Vest is the ideal choice of protection. Blasters, slugthrowers, acid munitions, vibroblades, and lightsabers can all be stopped by the Red Vest!

Extreme is not allowed at anything other than UNIQUE ratings. It is one of the rules of the factory please push all your ratings of extreme down to very high.

 

Secondly Kinetics and melee weapons can be treated as one rating anyways unless you are you spilt it down into a bunch of different types of damage.

First....Hi Tom Taff it's been a minute! Thanks for taking the time to look this over, I appreciate it.

 

Second, you're right. It balanced on the spreadsheet so I never thought anything more about the rating limit. Thank you.

 

Third, I have always understood "Kinetics" to mean projectiles (i.e. rail guns, slugthrowers, etc.) and concussive blast, i.e. shielding from internal injuries caused by blunt-force trauma or shockwaves, while melee weapons were things like slicing, stabbing, shrapnel, etc. Is that not the case?If so, did that change or is that new?

 

Thanks again, changes made!

Well I have always personally viewed kinetics as anything that uses force to impart damage. Like for example of what you said using slugthrower. In my mind it makes sense that a armour that can tank a round of that can also tank a hammer hit to the chest. Given the hammer would travel slower than a slugthrower, more area for the force to be spread, ECT.

 

Also when you think about it really a gun/slugthrower is technically a piercing weapon which also includes things like daggers, javelins, swords some times. Anything that has to use a sharp end and only goes in one area. Just my thoughts on it.
