This is the actual Mesh used in Body Armor Vest.
Both outer layers are relatively smooth and comfortable to the skin when worn on top of common apparel fabric. The textile is woven in such a manner that the ends of the stiff "bristle" of the inner layer are isolated from coming through to either side; preventing the ends of the "bristle" from creating an irritating abrasive surface. The inner "bristle" layer is really the heart of this material's functionality, it acts like a miniature mattress box spring; distributing weight and pressure over a wider area.
