Yes, it goes bad when used as a vest.Body mosture and constant movement.

They are only certified for use for four years than must be replaced. I have a few of my old ones and they seem fine but don't want to fnd out if they go stale. Since Kevlar is a woven fiber not sure how you cOuld re use it or what kind of market there is for it.

Why not ship them to the troops overseas , they use the old vests to line the floors of there vehicles , helps protect them from road side bombs ..

Yeah, if you could just get them loaded into the nooks and crannies of a cargo plane going that way I'm sure they could put the panels to use.

Some neat suggestions on here, but are there no rules with the contract.....as in the kevlar may be sold but the vests themselves cannot be passed on to others ???
Cant imagine H S lets you pass these things on to just anyone.

If you can, I'm sure there are some police depts in Mexico that could use them.

Do they not have H S printing across the back of them in big letters ??

They have to be shredded. The government wants them shredded. I cant even keep one for my self. They are watching the shredding as its done. I believe its against the law to own a vest. Up to 5 years in fed prison if not a military or police use. Thats what the HS guy is telling me.

Guess that why you asked where to get rid of shredded Kevlar in the first place
