Friday Gear Report: Bulletproof Clipboard

afrankel6 Comments

What kind of clipboard would Batman use? One made of Level II body armor of course.

ThinkGeek is now peddling their new Bulletproof Clipboard for $44.95. Your not going to be deflecting bullets like Wonder Woman, but claims are this clipboard will stop 9mm bullets dead in their tracks like Superman’s chest.

From ThinkGeek:

It can hold paper AND stop a 9mm bullet in its tracks.

 

Each Bulletproof Body Armor Clipboard is a section of Level II body armor, with a clip attached to hold the paper. Level II body armor is tough enough to stop the penetration of 9mm bullets and all those stopped by Level I and Level IIA.

 

Weighing in at 3Lbs, the Bulletproof Clipboard can also make a handy club to smack your attackers.

  1. not impressed at all. wanna impress me? hold the damn thing and show me it works. I almost expect to find in the box at the very bottom tucked away a disclaimer with all sorts of bullshit terms conditions legalese

  2. I can see plenty of applications where this would be useful. Attach a neck chain and drop inside your shirt for quick protection. You can use it as a shield to rush an active shooter with a handgun if you are boxed in. And at 3#, it would be effective when used as a striking weapon on the flat side or the edge. And it only costs $45. Even a shitty used vest on Ebay is going to cost you $200 plus and a good quality vest new is over $500.
