This Beetle body armor is not designed for fighting cockroaches or other insects. It is to protect the human body against injury in skiing accidents.

Or as the designers at the POC lab say: "The new science of biomimetics is what inspires us at POC in our daily quest to develop ever-better products and solutions that will minimize the consequences of accidents when skiing - saving people's lives and reducing the injuries they suffer."

The Beetle armor is made of a durable and stretchy fabric with panels of aramid mesh for cut-resistance. The spine forms the basis of a modular system that you can trust absolutely, consisting of a flexibly jointed back-shield in a special combination of the latest high-tech materials, anatomically shaped and generously ventilated. The detachable back protector may be used separatly without the jacket.
