Title: Bullet-proof raincoat
Post by: TehBorken on Mar 08 07 06:15
 [h3]Bullet-proof raincoat         [/h3] Found on [a href="http://www.spycatcheronline.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=380"]SpyCatcherOnline[/a].  The raincoat is also body-armor, bullet-proof and stab-proof. The only problem is that if you're wearing this you might have to contend with [em]jacket[/em] muggers who want to rip off your $2,000 coat. (http:///forums/richedit/smileys/Shocked/6.gif)   The armor protects against:
[font size="1"]
9mm Full Metal Jacket Round Nose (FMJRN) projectiles, with a weight of 8gm (124gr) at 430 m/s.
Full Metal Jacket Round Nose (FMJRN) type DM11A1B2 (DN or MEN) projectiles with a weight of 8gm (124gr) at 415m/s.
44 Magnum jacketed Soft Point (JSP) type Norma 11103/61103 projectiles with a weight of 15.6gm (158gr) at 390 m/s.
44 Magnum Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) projectiles with a weight of 15.6gm (240gr) at 430 m/s.
Eastern European Tokarev LC 7.62 x 25mm steel core projectile with a weight of 5.5gm at 455 m/s. [/font]

This jacket also protects against stabs, cuts, slashes with sharp and blunt edged weapons like hypodermic needles, ice picks, knives and broken bottles up to 25 Joules according PSDB (2003).

It's a great idea, except the ones that could probably afford such a jacket are people that are into some heavy duty crime.  Now they can carry on while being  invincible.

I'd love one, but $2000 is a little too much. Still, if it saves your life it would be well worth it.

That's got to be super heavy.  Have you ever worn a bullet proof vest? The thing weighs like 50lbs.
