"PROFESSIONAL HOG DOG GEAR"
 Hard Core Cut Gear is designed with over 30 years of hog hunting experience and ideas, to provide your dog with the BEST Cut Protection on the Market.  Not only do we provide almost 100% Cut Proof KEVLAR Gear, but we also offer a large variety of choices to customize your vest to your liking. We also love to hear ideas and comments on our vest. Our vest will always be an ever growing evolution so that it is not only the best protection for your dollar, but remains the highest quality and best vest on the market!

WHY KEVLAR?
Our test show, over and over again that KEVLAR, per layer, offers you be best protection of any other material out there,...period..... One layer of Kevlar can be compared to 3-7 layers of nylon or cadura. Some of our competitors will try to lead you to believe different, believe me, I’ve heard all the sales pitches and have had my share of dogs cut through nylon and cadura vest until I started running KEVLAR. YES WE ARE HOG-DOG HUNTERS, not just people peddling vest! Facts are facts, Every Nylon vest I have scene (Even a 6 Layer) has been cut through at one time or another, when taking direct hits form large boars. I have just recently scene 6 layers of Cadura, not only cut through, but sliced through, that right 6 LAYERS! I have also seen on multiple occasions 4-6" slices through 3-4 layer nylon-vest. Most so called “Catch Dog” Nylon or Cadura vest are made with 5+ layers just to try to prevent this, but are still susceptible to direct hits. These vest become Heavy and HOT!.
ON THE OTHER HAND! Test show that Kevlar vest are just about 99.9% Hog Proof (something that even 5-7 Layer Nylon vest cannot offer!). While no vest is a 100% cut prood, we are about as close as possible to that 100% as possible, will some of our newer catch vest reaching that 99.99% rating. We do test these vest and other vest to strive to continue to offer the toughest layer for layer cut vest on the market! This is why we have NOT had a dog cut through our personal vest by a hog as long as we have been running Kevlar and was why Premium Grade 2500 Kevlar and Correctional Kevlar was a MUST when we started designing or own vest.  By the way, we run a single layer Kevlar vest on all of our dogs in these test. With KEVLAR we get Maximum Protection in a lightweight vest.
Good dogs are hard to come by, VERY HARD, so why chance it!
