I've had this vest 8 months now and you wouldn't know. The material still looks brand new! It's still very comfortable and its still a joy to wear. The material against the skin is so soft and makes me want to wear it all day every day.
Many vests I've owned in the past have given me problems with my body temperature. I often got too warm when wearing it and spent every day waiting to be able to take the vest off. This vest does the opposite. I often forget I'm wearing the vest. The ease it gives me to breath and move is perfect and I will definitely be using Safeguard for my future vests.
I work as a doorman at a nightclub and often have problems dealing with people who are intoxicated. The vest is great for ensuring I can deal with dangerous situations with limited risk and doesn't effect my movement or flexibility which is perfect.
