Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. dont know if anyone managed to catch the mail on sunday article on kevlar underwear or not?

    Anyway, thought that i had better pip in on this issue.

    BCB International have "developed" some kevlar underwear that makes claims to be able to "stop fragmentation" to your nuts during an IED...

    Now, as someone who makes and sells body armour to people like the FCO/HMRC/DFID etc; i was a bit worried about these claims in the press, claims that i consider no more that advertising.

    At 230 M/S, this is almost half of what F1 STANAG 2920 standard, the lowest possible frag testing standard.

    make your own mind up!

    V50 Testing is STANAG 2920, not NIJ Standards -

    I felt sickened and ashamed for looking at it, so stabbed it repeatedly with a ball-point pen.

    Reminds me of a famously camp conversation.

    "Sooo, Jarrod, this is a dangerous job. Do you think you are capable of killing someone?"

    "mmmmmmmmm . . . . . eventually."
     
  6. I have also seen the aforementioned "gift" and my eyes have only just stopped bleeding. Took 8 Grolsh's to dull the memory :lol:

    Only 8?!??!

    You're on the turn.
     
  8. I know I shouldn't ask as it will most likely be something so horrendously sick and twisted that I will regret asking ....... but what was it?
     
  9. The boffins at Dstl know what they are doing. Whatever the outcome is, it will be good for the lads.

    Well, considering my neighbour didn't see it, but is still having nightmares having seen the look on my face, it's pretty bad. Scat porn's got nothing on this cookie!
