Gregg was at Centennial's Skydex, a company with a motto of "protecting things that matter." They specialize in providing U.S. military fighters with what they say is the very best in personal protection that is lightweight, field tested, durable and comfortable.

Their product line includes ballistic helmet pads, shoulder pads,  
knee and elbow pad inserts and more. The company uses a patented twin-cushioning material that adds energy absorption and vibration dampening properties.

Gregg learned this firsthand when he volunteered to submit to a baseball bat test of a Skydex-treated military helmet. He looked a bit like a Whack-A-Mole when the bat came crashing down. Happily, he survived to Where In The Town another day.

Besides wearable protective gear, Skydex also makes blast mitigating flooring in the latest military vehicle. Besides combat, the company makes cushioning for athletic purposes. Skydex executives say each application is tuned by their engineers, depending on what their customers want.
