I have been wary of the effectiveness of built in armor in jackets compared to pressure suits.

The jacket did its job and I was very impressed with the level of protection with such a violent get off.
Looking into the Badlands as my next all around jacket
Even his clavicle did its job protecting him, by breaking and short-circuiting all that energy absorbed on his arms and/or should and preventing that energy from reaching his neck/spinal column.

But it's good to know the Badlands will do its job.
