View Full Version : Protective garment info sought

01-26-1995, 02:40 AM
Dear readers,
I am looking for references in the scientific literature concerning analyses
of the efficacy of various types of protective garments for the upper body.
My particular interest is in 'flak jackets' worn by racehorse and
steeplechase jockeys, but I would like to gather information concerning
evaluations of other types of torso protectors that may be worn in other sports
or other industrial or military situations.
Thank you. As always, I will post a summary of responses to the list.
