    I haven't used any vacuums formed armor before but am wondering how malleable and flexible it is.
    I just used sinatra armor and was able to heat and reshape to conform to my body and was wondering if vacuum form can do the same.
    Any info is much appeciated.

    Vacuum formed armor is already formed and set to shape. While it has slight flex especially depending on the material, if it has edges on it as RKDs and even the other armors do, then trying to heat it and shape it will probably end up giving creases and bends. Usually the makers conform their armor to basic human body shapes, so there really shouldn't be a need to reshape. Hope this helps, and hopefully others will chime in
