Projects Experience Process About

- The common protective riot gear worn by police officers is bulky, relatively slow to put on,
hot and ergonomically poor.
- I developed this solution for D3O which offers light and flexible protection, breathability and
is very quick to put on. It challenges the specifications given by blunt trauma standards and yet
reaches all the necessary requirements. It helps minimizing the aggressive look of officers facing
riots and hence reduces the feel of aggression from the crowd. It is quite unique in its sector.
- The garment is in process of being certified with the HOSDB standard, has received excellent
feedback during wear trials with the Met Office anti-riot officers and is currently being launched
on the market triggering wide interest worldwide.
