However, it may be that the terminator is hard to beat with the sling  Smiley

I wonder how polycarbonate lexan plating would protect against sling stones?

A few mm thick thermoformed lexan breastplate would definitely be arrow and knife-proof.

I think it would work well. Just a couple things. It would work best if it had a curve, which would allow it to better deflect energy rather than only absorbing it. And because a sling projectile is essentially working as a blunt force weapon, you would also want to have padding of some kind under the breastplate. But with that I think it would be quite effective.

Very impressive Timpa! I really like the look of the weave too. Im also impressed that you found an official test method to use for comparison against other cut protection devices.

My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES! Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none! -Jesus the Noodler
