Diamond Armor Bulletproof Suit

The Swiss company introduced its new product to the market - the bulletproof Diamond Armor (Diamond Armor) suit. True, this suit will find its place only in the wardrobe of the richest businessmen of our time. This is not surprising, because this costume will cost the owner a tidy sum - 3,2 million dollars. If you are looking for something for your everyday wardrobe that would suitably look among your everyday clothes and at the same time bulletproof, the costume of the Swiss company SuitArt is what you need.

It is also suitable for all those who for some reason did not fit the “budget” version of a bulletproof business suit proposed by the atelier from Toronto, but we will talk about the “budget” suit in the second part of our article. In the meantime, focus on the model Diamond Armor. The cost of a million dollar 3,2 suit automatically turned it into the world's most expensive bullet-proof suit. The suit, which, according to the developers, can withstand a shot from an 9-mm pistol, without losing elegance, and can be sewn to the nearest millimeter according to your figure.

The Diamond Armor business suit is bulletproof, ventilated, water repellent and custom tailored. Given the set of listed characteristics, it is not surprising that this men's suit is a joint product of cooperation of several large companies at once. For example, the bullet-proof part of Diamond Armor was developed by Croshield, a well-known manufacturer of lightweight body armor. The manufacturer guarantees the quality of its products and notes that the suit fully complies with the second level of protection according to the standards of NATO STANAG 2920 and NIJ standard 0101.0.

Diamond Armor Bulletproof Suit

To protect the costume holder from more prosaic threats, like rain on an overcast autumn day, nanotechnologies, created by Schoeller Technologies, were implemented in Diamond Armor. The technologies created by this company imitate the structure of the surface and the behavior of plants to protect themselves from water and dirt, which makes the business suit not only bulletproof, but also moisture and dirt repellent. A similar technology is used to seal the seams of the suit against possible leaks.

All protective layers implemented in a suit make it too warm and not the most comfortable for everyday wear, but the manufacturer has taken care of this, having provided a special conditioning layer in the suit. By pressing a special button, the owner of "diamond armor" can easily put into operation an active cooling system built into the suit, which starts a mini-fan blowing air through a special ventilation layer filled with water. The active cooling system was developed by the specialists of the Swiss company UNICO Swiss Tex GmbH.

In this case, the suit is not in vain called diamond armor. To add extra chic, this modern diamond armor was encrusted with 600 black diamonds, each with a diameter of 4 mm. The total weight of diamonds on a business suit is 140 carat. Diamonds adorn the lapels of the suit and its buttons. In addition to this, each button of the costume was made of steel, from which precious Swiss watches are usually made. Buttons are also encrusted with diamonds (total 280 pieces). If this seems insufficient to you for a suit worth 3,2 million dollars, then in addition to it you can order a tie in which ordinary silk threads adjoin to pure gold threads. You can also order a Swiss watch Carl F. Bucherer, for the production of which titanium, gold and ceramics are used.

It is worth noting that this is not the first attempt to give a wealthy people a bulletproof suit in which it would be possible to appear in secular society. In 2013, employees of a Canadian atelier from Toronto presented to the public their own development of a bulletproof suit. Remarkable is the fact that the very director of the studio Michael Nguyen fell to test the costume. He literally in his own skin had to feel all the charm of being protected from a shot from an 9-mm pistol and shots inflicted by a hunting knife. By the way, he passed this test without getting a single scratch.

Note that a variety of bullet-proof clothing has been around for quite some time, but, as a rule, it looks too brutal and has a high weight. At the same time, the majority of people who are really interested in using such protection cannot afford to appear, for example, at a public speech or at a reception, in a bulletproof vest.

The Canadian bulletproof business suit in the lining structure contains a number of sheets made of carbon nanotubes. These sheets were produced by the same company that produces equipment and armor for American special forces. These sheets are more flexible and thinner than Kevlar (modern material, which is X times more durable than steel) and at the same time their weight is less than 5. The protection of the costume is constructed in such a way that it is able to intertwine in the right place, where a point strike was struck. Thus, these sheets are able to prevent the penetration of the bullet or knife of the attacker into the fabric.

Preliminary testing of such a suit showed that it is able to withstand the hit of a 45 ACP bullet (11,43 × 23 mm), which is used in the famous Colt M1911 pistol. This result ensures compliance with the level of protection "2", which is used in the classification of the American National Standards Institute. In this case, the official certification of the Canadian costume has not been reported. Compared to its Swiss counterpart, this costume can rightly be called a “budget” one. Its estimated market value is approximately 20 thousand dollars. Of course, no one will ever sweep such costumes from store shelves, but they will definitely find their clients among wealthy citizens who are often involved in a very risky business.

    Interestingly, is the shirt also armored? Because if not, then there will be little sense from such partial armor, but in general no miraculous suit will save from a shot in the head ...

      I agree. The main thing is that it only "holds" a standard 9mm pistol bullet! (not even clear from what distance) Ie. Special bullets for pistols of 9mm and larger caliber are lethal, not to mention bullets for automatic and sniper weapons. Junk and wiring for moneybags shaking for their lives

        And bodyguards for what. The suit will help from fools with a gun in the office, even more so now metal detectors may not help.

    Yes, the suit is really for "the richest businessmen of our time." I had a couple of questions, let's say they shot the wearer of this suit with a pistol. The air conditioner was covered, but the suit withstood the hit of the bullet, and will it not hurt the uncle who is inside this suit? And yet, since they decided to remove such a tough businessman (official), then (as I think) they are unlikely to shoot from pistols, there are a lot of guards there. A sniper, an explosion or some kind of accident seems to me more likely in this case.
    PS I won’t be surprised if this masterpiece will be a fashionable attribute among Russian officials and businessmen.

      It hurts - not deadly. (c) Any defense does not save, but increases the chances.

    In-in ... So ... what Small business remains: it is necessary to develop a bulletproof face cream yes filter in the nostrils, neutralizing all known and yet unknown OM yes , a pill in the stomach, again neutralizing all the poisons yes , sew in a light cylinder with a supply of oxygen in case they strangle yes ...Well... what and something else to come up with radiation ... Then you can safely go out!

    What can I say, the bourgeoisie and nothing else! Without a "sucker", as you know, life is bad! I would like to take a look at this outfit after hitting the same 9mm ammunition from SR-1 "Vector"! And the head, according to the instructions, when wearing this suit, should be hidden in the pockets!

    With all the pluses shown to us, there is one biggest minus. When shooting in the chest, at least 3 bullets will give such a bullet-proof injury that the "client" will die painfully with broken ribs and torn internal organs.

      In my opinion, 1st 9x18 will be enough to break a rib and incapacitate for 10-20 minutes, not to mention the subsequent bruise on the floor of the piles. cells, not a word about this problem in the article)))

    Of course it’s a little expensive .. but life is more expensive, all the statements that the machine doesn’t hold to the head will get other threats too, the answer to this suit only increases the probability of surviving in a dangerous situation, by 5-7 percent, but the same bread, a bullet after a rebound or again having hit the same bodyguard or car door, it’s not an absolute defense, but just an additional chance to save the most expensive .. life. Believe me if there were a device guaranteeing 100% safety of life on the market, if there were a price of at least a billion, it would be a turn.

    In addition, a bulletproof hood, a bulletproof Balaclava and the same diaper will be included with it, so as not to lose the most important thing, which you can’t do without in business and in real life

    And you asked what Kennedy thinks about the jacket? It is a pity that he will not answer - the holes in the head and neck decided everything. Uncle Vasya with a sawn-off shotgun will not come to a man who bought a suit for such money, nor does a ninja with a katana either. A sniper, a spoonful of polonium in tea, RPGs from bushes in a car - but are there any means for guaranteed destruction?
    It would be interesting to look at Comrade Michael Nguyen after I would unload the clip from the TT at him point-blank. After that, he would have lived well for a maximum of half an hour - damage to organs as a result of armor exposure even with a standard bullet would be fatal. Provided that only a jacket is fired. But could have missed higher laughing
