Fair warning...I only joined here to use and abuse your knowledge base about all things RIB related.
I have a small business that makes soft non skid products, and we have a shock mitigation line in development and testing with some of our (US) military, law enforcement and a commercial tour operator. We plan to release a consumer facing version of this product at some point as well. I'm not sure if shock mitigation is as big an issue for the commercial and recreational markets as it is for military, but I don't think there is a better resource for us to find out than this place.
For the time being I will be keeping my head down and mouth shut (for the most part) and learning what I can on topics that have already been covered. But some time soon I will start asking for your feedback on products that might be useful for you.
