What is d3o?

d3o™ is a wonderful, almost magical orange material made by d3o™ lab from intelligent molecules which lock together on impact.  They move freely with you but in the event of an impact of some kind they absorb the impact energy thus protecting you or the item they are covering.  

Beyond Tomorrow

Different Types

There are different types of d3o™ depending on the job it is designed to do.  The sheet form is made in two geometries. The mesh is a perforated sheet designed for use in items which need good flexibility; it affords great breathability and comfort and can be used in clothing. The sheet is not breathable and it offers a higher rate of protection than the mesh.
