ProMAX Concealable 100% GoldFlex
Approximately 35% thinner than standard Aramid vests, 100% Gold Flex or Gold Shield make for a super-thin vest that is as comfortable as our Premium Aramid vest, and even more concealable. Unlike many other brands, this is not a blend of GoldFlex and other materials, but 100% GoldFlex for exceptional lightness, thinness, flexibility, comfort and concealability. GoldFlex/GoldShield provide slightly better blunt trauma performance than Aramid. Another advantage is being intrinsically waterproof and positively buoyant (Aramid is neutrally buoyant). The tradeoff is they do not have the decades-long durability track record of Aramid, and are more easily damaged by high heat abuse than Aramid.
