Stab-Proof Hoodies

Stab-proof hoodies

With the recent shooting incident at Virginia Tech, companies are scrambling to find ways to protect children at school from harm. The latest in this cutting edge protective fashion — a stab-proof hoodie.

The tops will retail for ~$70 and could soon be a part of school uniforms. Each stab-proof hoodie is lined with Kevlar, a very light but strong synthetic fiber used in body armor for British troops in Iraq.

The clothing is the brainchild of company bosses Adrian Davis and Barry Samms, who also make protective clothes for police forces and security guards. The pair — who run the BladeRunner firm in Romford, Essex — believe there is a gap in the market.

Barry, 33, said: “A friend of mine is a police officer in Ilford and he told me that while doing stop and searches on 14 and 15-year-old kids, he’s found they are wearing stab-proof and bullet-proof vests.”

What will kids wear in the summer, when it’s too hot to wear hoodies?

    but wat if sum bully decides to beat that kid up, steal it, then use it for many other possible evil things!

  • allgood

    great, now i can drive with my top down =) haha

    Kevlar for kids, now that’s a breakthrough. Trouble is those evil Dennis the Menaces might find it fancy, wear ’em then try to kill people. Instant protection for bad brats, now that’s a dilemma.

    O_o, pretty awesome, and if its $70, not that pricey consider what was used to make it, i mean, look at a dress shirt from a&f, thats already $70+ there. Imagine a stab proof Tank top hahahha

  • cardroy

    yeah the thing is when you go to the link it says: remember this item isnt stab proof its only slash proof.. why say its stab proof on the news then ? gay.

    if children were properly chastised and disaplined from an early age (i.e. bring back the cane in schools) then maybe parents like myself would not have to look into purchasing these items at all.

    i want one of those :/ the proper stab proof ones though, because i mean you can just wear two jumpers to become slash proof instead of spending money on one.
