We did (oh yeah!), we did (well over 100) and I'm working on it.
In the meantime, here's a teaser: I am now a firm believer in the effectiveness of this vest. I even managed to do a "controlled" experiment comparing protected and unprotected areas that underwent about the same impact. Suffice to say, the unprotected area is rather abused at this moment. But I have no marks whatever on my back or under the vest.
Pictures (and a full report) to follow.
