PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Dec 12, 2011) - Michael Vick returned to play invincible against the Miami Dolphins. Despite several sacks and deliberate devastating blows to his broken ribs, Vick was unscathed because of his specially designed UNEQUAL® Body Armor made with ballistic grade DuPont™ Kevlar® and military-grade materials (approved for civilian use). UNEQUAL's patented head and body armor is thin, light and flexible, making it the most technologically advanced protection on the field.
Since breaking his ribs last season in a game against the Washington Redskins, the Philadelphia Eagles QB has been wearing an UNEQUAL Body Armor built into a thermally insulated winter weight shirt, as Vick instructed. Facing unexpected hot temperatures in last month's game against the Arizona Cardinals, Vick opted to forgo the UNEQUAL winter weight body armor and instead wore a competitors' protective gear that resulted in Vick breaking two ribs and missing the last three games.
"I wore a different one, not made by UNEQUAL," he admitted. "I switched it up because the UNEQUAL gear was a winter weight and it was hot that day. Bottom line: I didn't use UNEQUAL and got hurt. I now regret it."
For the December 11th game against the Miami Dolphins, UNEQUAL custom-designed non-thermally insulated body armor for Vick similar to the gear the Dallas Cowboys used to successfully protect Tony Romo's rib injury and safely returned him to the game.
