    Looks pretty wild. I wonder about the degree of flexibility soldiers would have in that suit.

    2 grand? Not likely. A standard Bulletproof Vest with decent coverage is 500-700 bucks. Now add on all the do-dads and thingamajigs, that price is far to low.

    I dont know. It sounds like one of those 'Too good to be true' type deals. He doesnt help matters by posing with those pistols out. Anything that helps our soldier survive better is a good thing, but I have worries about visibility and movement in those things. Even then, you're still going to have weak points so it's not completely bulletproof. There's close to no protection around that neck line.

    That's that bear armor guy - I have seen videos of his ballistic foam being tested and it looks like it really works, but then again you can't believe everything you see.

    cool.. That would also be a psychological advantage against the enemy. If you saw an army of people dressed like that you'd probably freak a bit.

    Might be good for infantry units , but does'nt seem ideal for stealth.
    Wonder how fast a guy can run in one of those?

    I could see a defense contractor licensing the rights to produce this thing in high volume, and then selling it to the military for $50,000 a pop. $10,000 for a hammer...$20,000 for a toilet seat...yadda yadda yadda

    I've seen it on the news, looks quite mobile actually. But yeah there is an exposed neck line though.
