Nestled in downtown Toronto's financial district, Garrison Bespoke is considered by top style magazines to be Canada's best custom tailor.  Entrepreneurs at Garrison Bespoke spent a year developing a new bulletproof thread with suppliers of the U.S. Special Forces.  The resulting thread uses the latest nanotechnology, employing carbon nanotubes to produce a hard, but flexible, fabric.  Garrison's fabric is about half the weight of Kevlar, the most common material used to make bulletproof garments.

All Garrison suits are custom-made and the bulletproof suit is no exception.  Nor is the cost, $20,000, which customers seem to find well worth it, considering every bit of the jacket, pants, and vest protects their lives.  Watch this test of the garments held at a Toronto shooting range....


 

Military innovations are seeping more and more rapidly into civilian culture, and it's great to see this bulletproof nanofabric is one of those innovations. Perhaps more such fabrics can be made that will enable others, who don't have the financial resources for a $20,000 suit, to purchase clothing that is as protective and lightweight as Garrison's.
