The only one I know of is called 2ndamendmentarmor, their product is called Rhynohide. From my research, it is a single layer of CNT fabric underneath UHMWPE laminate, so I am not tremendously impressed. If they increased the number of CNT layers underneath a woven Aramid, I might be more interested. There are some vids on youtube with testing.
