Fiberglass Armor - any good?

Recommended Posts

I saw on Ebay some guy selling a set of fiberglass armor. Is there any advantage to fiberglass over ABS or HIPS? It seems really unusual, so I was wondering if anyone had any views/experiences with this.

I think That one of the Problems with Fiberglass Armor is that it is more Fragile then normal I have heard of some made that chip at the Edges


My fiance's one of the Biker Scouts. During the past six months, they've had some discussion on their board about fiberglass helmets as an option. Somebody did a run of the TB helmets in fiberglass. You nailed the problem on the head. Fiberglass can be shipped with all sorts of precautions and padding and can still show up cracked.
