SAS-TEC Hip Protectors

SAS-TEC Level II Hip Protectors
SAS-TEC Level II Hip Protectors:
  • SAS-TEC Level II hip protectors easily surpass the values of EN 1621-1:2012, Level 2
  • Soft feel material gives "wear and forget" comfort
  • Lightweight with ventilation holes
  • Can be left inside the armor pockets and washed with the pants

We really like these SAS-TEC Level II hip protectors. They are the best performing hip protectors on the market, with excellent shock absorption values. In the EN test the residual force measured less than 11 kN, well under the pass level of 20kN. And we find them so comfortable that we don't notice we're wearing them.

Weight: ca. 65 g / item
Dimensions (L/W/H): ca. 210/150/16 mm

Price: $25 ($18 when bought at same time as Tropical Pants)


SAS-TEC Level I Slimline Hip Protectors
SAS-TEC Level 1 Hip Protectors
  • SAS-TEC Level I hip protectors surpass the values of EN 1621-1:2012, Level 1
  • Soft feel material these protectors can be worn all day in perfect comfort
  • Can be left inside the armor pockets and washed with the pants

We use the SAS-TEC Level I hip protectors in our smallest pants where Level II protectors will not fit. The Level 1 protectors are light and slim, with excellent shock absorption values for their size. In the EN 1621-1:2012 impact test the residual force measured less than 21 kN, well under the pass level of 35kN required for a Level I pass. Given their small size and weight they fit in the smallest pants sizes we manufacture (in men's waist sizes 28", 29", 30" and 31" pants.)

Weight: ca. 45 g / item
Dimensions (L/W/H): ca. 200/140/10 mm
