I was surprised to see they're using Superfabric for the abrasion areas. I've been using gloves (hexarmor 9003's) with Superfabric, and they're great. You can pick up cactus w/o problems and they lasted thru a year of regular dirtscaping/trailwork. It's basically little hexagonal hard plastic "sliders" all hinged together for flexibility.

I will be looking for this on my next suit of armor.
