Protect What Matters –
The SCOTT Vanguard Jacket is a multi-funcitonal jacket that combines a removable, flexible yet shock absorbing D3O® back and shoulder protector, a hydration system and storage options for nutrition, tools and valuables.
The D3O® inner lining is protected by the outer fabric. The functionality of the raw material in the inner lining originates from synergetic effects of the polymer-based dilatant, which is generally soft and flexible, but locks on shock. On impact the D3O® material absorbs the shock and distributes the energy throughout the synthetic elastomeric polymer and the enhanced chemistry continues to disperse the energy throughout the matrix. The resulting force, which gets transmitted to the body, is thereby significantly reduced.
