A complete suit is made up of nine components. A unique blend of 'Smart Foams', plastics, plexiglas, leather and polyester make up the materials that make the HIGH GEAR™ suit the lightest, most versatile 'Impact Reduction Gear' on the market.
Over 500 assembly stages go into every single hand-crafted HIGH GEAR™ suit. The gear took over 7 years to make from sketching to final prototype.
HIGH GEAR™ AT A GLANCE
- Much lighter than anything on the market: just 7.5 lbs.
- Takes just over 3 minutes to gear up solo or 2 minutes with assistance.
- The ONLY gear with virtually total mobility, allowing for grappling, clinching and weapons defense training.
- The ONLY gear that you can wear clothes over to increase the visual reality and sensory overload for students in simulations, which will increase the adrenal surge.
- Will not interfere with your style or system's tactics. We've had it tested by some of the world's most experienced DT & combatives experts, as well as kick-boxers & even Brazilian Ju Jitsu specialists, everyone was able to use the gear effectively.
- Only HIGH GEAR™ doesn't distort "Proximity Sense". Most gear is so bulky that the target you make contact with is NOT really a target in real-life.
- Because HIGH GEAR™ is so light, flexible and mobile, you can train in more realistic environments. Now you can practice in an elevator, hallway, bed, in a car and so on. This is one of the ways to really improve confidence in your students: create realistic scenarios, in realistic environments with realistic dialogue and realistic tactics.
HIGH GEAR™ should be snug when worn correctly. To determine sizing and/or training needs, please read through the entire HIGH GEAR™ directory and then call or e-mail for consultation.

HIGH GEAR™ is designed for ATHLETES. Each component's sizing is based on an athletic cut (similar to protective gear worn in hockey or football). Fit is controlled by velcro enclosures.
To accommodate different body types, larger training programs will often supplement their 'full-suit' orders by purchasing extra components.
An important "User Information" manual is sent once your order is confirmed. This manual contains important "Use & Safety" information and must be read by the "End-User" to ensure proper use and improve safety during training exercises using HIGH GEAR™.
