Kevlar flannel. It's why Kurt Cobain didn't die in a motorcycle crash. Nah. I don't know if Cobain even rode a bike. But if he did, ScorpionExo's Covert Flannel could have helped save his hide if he went down. The shirt could still save yours. Or at the very least, support your stance that Flannel rules! and Grunge lives!
In describing their Covert Flannel, ScorpionExo wants to make one thing clear: they "didn't just take a flannel shirt add some Kevlar thread and call it a protective garment." The classic cotton/poly outer material is fully lined with 165G DuPont Kevlar. That's the whole inside of the shirt, not just the elbows and bellybutton. The Kevlar layer is then covered with quilted polyester lining, which I'd assume makes the Covert Flannel pretty bulky, and maybe more like a light jacket than a button-up.
ScorpionExo continues its push for abrasion and impact protection with ultra-strong exo-stitch shirt seams they say will keep the fabric adhered if you hit the ground. Mesh pockets on the elbows, shoulders, and back provide optional space for CE-certified armor.
