Right. Attempting to make that armor using David's Cutting-Edge Armor Design article while using the listed thickness of the scales gives DR roughly half of HT's listed value, IIRC. YMMV, though; I'm still futzing with the three armor design articles.

That said, I'm having some troubles comparing the Reflex Vests in UT with the Concealable Vests in HT, given the numbers are almost identical....
