Lance,

ANSI Class 3 vests exceed the 144 sq in requirement, so that is the most expedient way to "buy yourself into compliance." The smallest size I found was an adult Medium, so yes, my kid will look like she's wearing a robe.

She'll probably be LESS safe, what with the restricted freedom of movement, but I don't think anyone's ever accused legislators of considering unintended consequences.

Regarding the email from Major Sinclair to Jeff Barringer: Sinclair may THINK it's very clear, but it's not, because whoever came up with the wording doesn't understand the importance of grammar, particularly the judicious use of a comma. I think one could easily argue in a court of law (for those with sufficient free time) that the wording could be construed as meaning "144 inches, [with that total comprised of material] on both the front and back."

However, if the guidance given to LE is to check for a full square foot on the front AND a full square foot on the back, do I want to spend time quibbling on the ROW when I could be herping? And does being a smart aleck with them make them want to send me on my merry herping way, or make them want to search my vehicle or look for other things to "nail me" for?

I bought the Class 3 vests.
