DRAGON SKIN: The name is cool, but the body armor, not so much. That’s according to Michael Yon, who’s selling his on eBay, and emails:

This is what I think of Dragon Skin. I don’t want to see American soldiers wearing this body armor. It’s inferior to and heavier than alternatives. I spent about $4,000 for mine and just put it on Ebay starting bid: $1. I’ll be happy to get $2 back from it. When I go back to Iraq in a couple weeks, I will not be wearing Dragon Skin. The controversy over body armor is largely manufactured and is impeding the fielding of better body armor.

If I were the Dragon Skin folks, I’d be unhappy about this anti-endorsement from such a prominent source.
