You can trust what you like, but Sas-tec is known to make "SP" series armor for OEM's. It's very obvious that several of Held's armor pieces are straight out of the mold from Sas-tec's other items...

All the touring boots are a little stiff when new, but they get soft and floppy like a pair of slippers with age.

I think the service life of d3o is stated to be 2-3 years (based on the packaging that came with). Sas-tec claims 10.
