HyperBlast Vest

The Fabric

Each vest features 12 hit sensors to ensure that a hit is recorded each time you are tagged. Good hit coverage is important to ensure that every hit is counted accurately.
The vest is constructed of a durable and comfortable blend that holds up well over the years. The vests are sewn by a local business specializing in unique and durable products such as saddles and parachutes.


HyperBlast cases are constructed of 125 mil injection-molded polycarbonate in the midwest. The cases have proven to hold up well in the harsh laser tag environment.


The Phaser-Vest cable is the most critical data link the system, as it naturally takes more abuse than any other connection without a solid vest to reinforce it. Not only do we support the cable with an extra fabric strap, we also use a unique hybrid cable that combines the best features of the air hose style cables and telephone coils that are used by the competition. The cable is flexible and allows players of all sizes to comfortably hold the equipment, but still uses shielding, redundant wires, and a thick rubber jacket to protect this most important data connection.


HyperBlast uses a NiMH battery pack with 50,000-cycle rated Hypertronics connectors. At a typical duty cycle, the batteries last 16 hours. We construct each battery pack with a protective metal plate and a thermistor to ensure the battery lasts to its full potential. A lot of misinformation is spread on the internet about battery technology, particularly the 'memory effect'.
