I'd probably quickly make something like a forearm or a bicep, fiberglass and resin it and see for yourself, it really depends on how many layers of resin/fiberglass are in it/how they were put on ect.

Make the fiberglass 4 times as thick on the butt-plate and it should hold together fine.

If you're asking if all the armor is okay to sit on I would say no. Forces and leverage + ass = crumpled and cracked armor

dam i was needing something thats like indestructable for when im in the car and sitting down on a chair or something. cuz i dont wanna stand for 6 hours at school.
 
I would the armor built by NAS or Adam withstand sitting cause i mean they didnt walk all of the way to the halo 3 release, they must have had it on when driving in the car.

Yes you can sit on it.... just apply extra layers of resin and fiberglass.

Wouldn't you have to do that with the back when you sit in a chair too??? Would 5 square yards, or 225 square feet, be enough to make the entire suit like indestructible? Not saying I would get shot in it or anything, but able to take a beating here and there.
