Fashionable body armor

SciFi.com is reporting today on a new polymer made by the company d3o, which promises to deliver a huge amount of impact protection in a small and flexible package. I’m drooling over the possibility of turning this stuff into my SCA armor, but the d3o website isn’t very promising, as it talks about March 2007 as though it were still in the future. Still something worth keeping my eye on… and hoping it won’t be too expensive. This could be sewn right into some landsknecht garb, and I could by stylin’ and safe on the battlefield. That is, if the product live up to the hype.
