This Normal-Looking Suit Will Make You Bulletproof

This is the perfect suit for the guy who’s worried about being shot to death on the way to work. Garrison Bespoke made it with carbon nanotubes that are initially soft, but harden on impact to protect you. Apparently, it has been tested to stop .22 and .40 caliber bullets.

This past year, Garrison Bespoke worked alongside suppliers for the US 19th Special Forces in developing the custom bulletproof suit. Using nanotechnology, it’s comprised of the same carbon nanotubes designed for the US troops’ uniforms in Iraq. Yet, the patented suit material is a lot thinner and flexible; fifty percent lighter than Kevlar (the material commonly used in bullet-proof gear). The entire suit acts like a shield, with nanotubes in the fabric hardening to block force from penetrating through.

That kind of protection isn’t cheap, but there’s still a waiting list for the $20,000 suit.
