Question on high impact gear?

Postby Rick Wilson » Tue Mar 23, 1999 7:14 am

Has anyone ever worked with Tony Blauer's HIGH GEAR™ Impact Reduction Suit. It is different from some of the high impact suits in that it is built for sparring full contact. It is supposed to prevent injuries but not all the effect of the strikes -- not invulnerable. The write up says:

HIGH GEAR™ weighs only 7.5-lbs. "head to toe" - it's the lightest full-body protective suit on the market.

- Run, walk, sit, somersault, jump a fence, high kick... if you can do it in real-life, you can do it in HIGH GEAR™

- Incorporate dialogue -- with our head gear, you can still talk!

- Wear street clothes over the gear to simulate real-life aggressors.


Like all the high impact gear it is expense, so I was hoping someone on this forum might have had hands on experience and would post a review from their perspective.

Thanks,

Rick

I did a web search for "High Gear", and couldn't find anything. Is there an URL or a source of information?

Tony Blauer's main page can be found at:

http://www.tonyblauer.com/

You can go direct to the High Gear info at:

The cost back in 1997 was $750 US + shipping. There is now a reduction for 2 suits or more.
