A Jedi can deflect projectiles with skilled use of a Lightsaber and the Force. Unfortunately those of us here on Earth aren’t quite so skilled and need something a little more protective.
Enter AR500 Armor, a body armor manufacturer who have just unveiled this Boba Fett-inspired bit of combat gear. A collaboration between AR500, Heckler & Koch, TEA Headsets, Sog Knives & Tools, Armasight, SureFire, Wilcox Industries Corp, Team Wendy and artist Ryan B. Flowers (who sells a version of the armor for airsoft players), this armor boasts custom ballistic plates, meaning it can probably withstand actual gunfire. However, there’s no word yet on whether or not this is a one-off piece or if it will be made available for sale.
Check out more photos of the armor below.
