This Mithril Jacket is made from Kevlar, not the other way around
by Mark R
Some of you might be familiar with Kevlar, the material used to make bulletproof vests. This Mithril jacket is made from it.
I’m sure some of you might be familiar with Mithril, the fictional armor from The Lord of the Rings which can apparently protect a hobbit, even if he gets impaled from a spear from a cave-troll. This Kevlar Mithril jacket is not made to be that hard, since it is softshell.
So this Mithril might not be able to withstand an attack by a gun or a knife, but it can withstand wind, water, and ripping. So I guess we are looking at some material that can last a lifetime.
It also looks like its durable design can withstand a lot of cold, and the material adds about 50 percent more weight to this jacket. I suppose that if you are an outdoorsman, this can withstand the most extreme situations.
This costs about $518, but if you think of it as a clothing investment for a lifetime, that is only about $5 a year if you live to be one hundred. I’m not certain where you can get this, and I’m wondering if it comes in different sizes. I can’t imagine this is a product at a clothing store and you can just try it on.
