Realy???...Of course it's not definitive,but I'd say a good indicator that a manufacturer has developed a decent product... and One in which they have confidence.
I'm sure Comercial-Government Procurment agency's would not even consider non C.E,Cat tested Marques.
Like I said,some interesting...AND Hopfully INFORMATIVE Drop Tests on You Tube
.................Cant say I know much about Brigg Rib's.
