(Classic) Weight of Kevlar and Armored Dusters?

#1 Postby Evangelos » Thu Jun 25, 2009 10:01 am

Anyone have any good guesses as to how much a kevlar vest and/or armored duster weighs?

What material is supposed to provide the armor in an armored duster?

A kevlar vest probably weighs on the order of 5 pounds, but I am guessing. I would guess that an armored duster weighs 12-15 lbs, and gets its value from heavy leather, though it could be reinforced with kevlar, or even ceramic or metal inserts.
