    I am extremely disappointed with the latest version of the SI Half Jacket 2.0. While extending the arms over my ears the right arm detached from the frame. I attempted to snap the arm to the frame and was unsuccessful as the connecting plastic piece was bent and disfigured. The SI HJ 2.0 frame has a loose flimsy piece of plastic that is not affixed to the frame like the Half Jacket 1, Flak Jackets, and Radars have. I am very disappointed with this purchase and will be returning them ASAP. I have had in my collection original Half Jackets that have been used and abused for several years and have never seen anything like this. I've only worn these twice. I have always bragged about how the Half Jackets were indestructible. Unfortunately, I can't say that anymore.

    it sounds like a fluke that should've never left the factory (I mean a standard issue model, c'mon), and I guess from there people will dwell into the Made in ____ and quality control.

    I'd actually judge the purchase after a return+exchange, unless I missed something about an overwhelming majority of HJ2's doing that.

    Looks like the polymer pin they use broke. Might have been mashed during install.

    QC mistakes happen. Try another before you determine the whole line is bad. They should exchange them no problem.

    +1. I think it's a QC mishap there. Try another pair.

    I hate those new "pins" that they're using on most of the newer models. It makes it a real pain to do custom paint, since you can't remove the earstems. Too bad Godzilla has the opposite problem!

    I know that's super frustrating :( I work with both half jacket and 2.0 daily I can assure you this rarely happens. As for the pins being different I have no comment.
