The Forcefield Pro Shirt is the ultimate all action shirt with high-spec CE-approved armor located at the elbows, shoulders and chest and now with a complete built in CE Level 2 back protector. Combining molded Nitrex Evo, a technical energy absorbing material, with the all new M15 armor, a specialized polymer from Nitrile rubber that has been optimized to achieve low weight, flexibility and Repeat Performance Technology (RPT) ensuring protection is given even after multiple impacts. The Pro Shirt's armor is removable and built into a shell made from BeCool, a unique fiber that has a greater diffusive area than standard fiber; this ensures high levels of breathability and comfort. During exercise the unique shape of the BeCool fiber means it acts like a fan extracting hot and wet air away from the body and replacing it with cool and fresh air.
Maximum protection and all day comfort.
- CE approved to EN1621-2 Level 2 (back protector).
- Removable armor at the back, elbow, shoulder and chest.
- Highly flexible and breathable.
- 3D molding.
- Machine washable (with the armor removed).
- Repeat Performance Technology (RPT).
- Front zip fastening.
- Perforation panels in key areas.
How does it work?
Forcefield body armor harnesses energy, slows it down and manipulates it into a lesser force before it hits your body. Where applicable, Forcefield body armor is made using a triangular grid material that they call Molded Nitrex Evo. This is made of interconnecting walls where the width of the wall at the base is always wider than at the top. This is triangular in shape and these walls all interconnect, which means that the material is structurally solid and sound. While the triangular shape they create is the 'mechanics' behind the high performance, the other important element is the formulation and technical layering system used. It's light and is robust. The ideal material is one that, on impact, compresses to a degree but then returns to its original shape and size. This means that you are maximizing the length of time so that as much energy can be absorbed as possible. So, on impact, what you are trying to do is delay as long as possible the moment of peak transmitted force. This force is what does the damage to the body. Forcefield Body Armour material slows the moment of peak transmitted force and spreads the damaging forces over the whole surface, which means that the material is used to its maximum.
Repeat Performance Technology:
Forcefield body armor has been designed to withstand multiple impacts. Most armor types deteriorate after an impact, making it un-usable and ready for the trash - not Forcefield. Their research shows that people do not throw hard armor / honeycomb types away after a crash (as they should), and instead carry on using it - yet now it is not fit for purpose. Take it a step further - in a serious, high speed crash where multiple strikes take place in the same incident, normal armor is getting weaker at the very time you need it to be strong. Forcefield body armor is as strong at the end of the crash as it was at the beginning, thus giving the wearer the best possible chance for the least amount of injury.
3D Molding Characteristics of Forcefield Body Armour:
Forcefield body armor is soft, moldable, breathable and the most non-restrictive material design available. After wearing for a short period of time, the armor custom molds itself to the wearer's body shape - therefore creating not only a two-dimensional shape of the body part, but a three-dimensional form, molding in all directions, wrapping perfectly around the body, becoming a part of the wearer. It has the ability to move and flex with the person wearing it and is not restrictive in any way - it becomes a second skin. Forcefield body armor is close fitting, slim and part of the body. And, it is breathable; each garment Forcefield body armor makes is perforated with thousands of holes to ensure the heat can pass through the product, maintaining body comfort at all times.

From what I can see there would be good back/kidney protection on this Armour Shirt.
There is also a Youtube Video showing the features here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZ0tvE1Oayk
