Last time I was in LA for business it seemed like every night there was some video of the latest gas station hold up and inevitably the crook would be wearing a hoodie to hide his face. A company called Bladerunner has a new hoodie that could revolutionize the criminal world.

This hoodie looks like a normal hoodie on the outside, but hides an inner shell that gives ballistic security at NIJ STD 0101.04 levels. I’m not sure what that means, but it sounds cool. Pocket-lint says that is enough protection to stop a 9mm slug at 1,090 feet per second.

The Defender Hoodie will go on sale soon at £300. I’m not sure exactly what the point is of this thing, if you need a bullet proof hoodie, you might want to put that £300 towards moving expenses and find a better place to live.
