Hacksmith's bulletproof suit

The Hacksmith demonstrated the suit’s durability by firing a number of different weapons at the suit. The suit successfully stopped bullets from handguns, shotguns and even an AK-47. The Ballistic fibers absorbed the bullet’s impact and prevents it from hurting the wearer. 


Hacksmith also tested the suit's ability against knives and found that it was effective. The suit has a number of other features too, including a communication system that allows the wearer to communicate with others in real-time and a thermal imaging system that provides a clear view of the surrounding area.



According to Hacksmith, he wanted to create a suit that could potentially be used by law enforcement and military personnel in dangerous situations. The creation of the bulletproof suit has garnered attention from around the world, with many people expressing amazement at the Hacksmith's ingenuity and creativity. Some have even suggested that the suit could have practical applications in law enforcement and military operations.

Hacksmith's suit remains flexible with 16 layers of composite materials and it is 3.4 mm thick. Kevlar is a high strength material with heat resistant synthetic fiber, that was cut at a 45 degree angle for the suit. The jacket has 20 layers of special kevlar. It has the potential to help in a variety of real-life situations, from law enforcement to military operations to personal protection. The suit's innovative design and technology could provide protection to individuals in dangerous situations.
