The Real Life Batsuit

Until now, masked vigilantes have had to make do with costumes more suitable for attending fancy dress parties than smashing up drug rings at ominous dockside warehouses.

But have-a-go heroes of the real world can breathe a collective sigh of relief. There’s no need to fret over whether five layers of GAP jumpers will make you stab proof any more now the intrepid doers at Armatus Designs have aped Wayne Industries with their very own jet black Kevlar body armour and utility belt.

Other protective elements include quarter inch Kydex plating and impact resistant foam, making it stab resistant and ultra-lightweight, demonstrated with this brilliant video below.

Word of note: it doesn't actually stop bullets and it won't protect you from explosions. Sorry.

You’ll clean up at fancy dress competitions, mind
