Tactical Body Armor Anyone?

I want one. I love this stuff.

Have you ever thought about how effective modern football/hockey armor would be in real combat? What would you have to add to it? I should pitch a reality tv show where designers make armor out of what's commercially available. They'd be allowed to modify anything they "bought" by 20% and add another 20% stuff they completely fabricated from scratch. At the end of each episode they'd put the armor through modern warrior type testing to determine stopping power vs reflex to arrive at an overall effectiveness number. I think it would be fascinating. Actually I'm probably thinking of something closer to Deadliest Warrior.
