Second Chance Body Armor, Inc.

A class action lawsuit has been filed against Second Chance Body Armor, Inc. on behalf of purchasers of Ultima and Ultimax bullet proof vests. The suit is in regards to the Zyton material which is used in manufacturing bullet proof vests, which according to the complaint degrades after exposure to heat, humidity, light, wear, care and in-service flex, resulting in the vests losing their protective qualities. The suit claims that the company did not take prompt and adequate steps to inform the purchasers, who mostly include law enforcement personnel, of the defects in the vests. In addition, the complaint alleges that the company continued to sell the vests knowing that their representations and warranties concerning the performance characteristics were false. The suit is seeking the refund or replacement of the defective vests for the purchasers.
