Exoskel Climbers and Shin Guards

Exoskel Group is a Made in the USA company producing a special shin guard that doubles as a stability and climbing aid.  The teeth, buckles, and stirrup design are tested to hold up to 1,000 pounds of weight.  Exoskel lists the following product advantages to a military or police operator:

  • RAPIDLY ASCEND urban obstacles
  • STABILIZER : firing / brace position on uneven ground
  • Close Quarter BATTLE TOOL
  • Perpetrator RESTRAINT

ExoskelimageThe Exoskel has a fire resistance rating of Self Extinguishing Fire Resistance UL94 V-0 (UL 94 V-0 Vertical Burn; Burning stops within 10 seconds, NO flaming drips are allowed).  The foam backing absorbs shock.  Each Exoskel guard weighs 1.1 pounds.

At $400.00 a pair with drybag (or $350.00 with military or police discount) these seem pricey.  But, hey, quality costs!  Exoskel lists a boatload of registered patents, designs, and trademarks, so I will be curious to see if there will be cheaper knock offs of this cool product.  Exoskel makes similar products for firefighters and hunters/outdoorsmen.
