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.

There's what people want to hear, there's what people want to believe, there's everything else, then there's the truth!
