Jack Ellis Body Protection now offers the option of a base layer that will enhance the wearers’ comfort and performance capability.
We have always produced our ballistic and stab resistant vests on the basis that if you had to buy one for yourself then you would happily chose a Jack Ellis vest and feel that you had the best protection and comfort available in the market. To complement our vests we have now found a base layer garment technology that really can be offered on this same exact basis.
Quite simply for comfort and performance if you were tasked with purchasing your own base layer you would opt for an Armadillo Merino® product. They are already standard wear for many active leisure pursuits and also increasingly for PPE complimentary wear.
Armadillo Merino® Base Layers are made from 100% ZQ Merino (NZ Sheep’s Wool).
Comfort, Performance and Next to Skin Protection
Armadillo fabrics have many inherent fabric properties including no electrostatic build-up, high UVA & UVB protection with a remarkable ability to thermo-regulate under both hot and cold conditions.
Armadillo Merino® Base Layers don’t just improve comfort and performance when worn with Jack Ellis Body Armour but they also provide additional protection in extreme environments. It has been reported and documented that in extreme situations of high temperature or flash temperatures, synthetic base layers can melt and cause severe skin wounds. Armadillo Merino® Base Layers are made from 100% natural fibres that have a higher flame resistance of up to 600°C and are widely used around the world by the Armed Forces, Police, Fire Fighters, Ambulance Personnel and Rescue Teams where comfort, performance and next to skin protection is vital to reduce the types of injuries which these professions and extreme environments present.
