These Long Johns are made up using 180gm specialised cut resistant material to provide anti-slash protection to the legs in accordance with British Standard EN388; 2003, 6.2 blade cut resistance, level 2. They also provide a level of puncture and bite resistance
The human legs contain major arteries and therefore need protection. Bladerunner anti-slash Long Johns are designed to provide a discreet method of providing a measure of protection which has so far been unavailable to security personnel and undercover operatives. They can also add a level of protection which derives from wearing puncture and bite resistant workwear.
KNIFE PROTECTION: This product will help protect the wearer from knife slash type injuries which, particularly in the legs, can be so life threatening. This product, however is not stab-proof. If you require fuller stab protection then please visit our stab-proof body armour section.
