Toronto tailor makes bulletproof suit
TORONTO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A tailor in Toronto has created a James Bond-like bulletproof suit.
It was unveiled at a shooting range this week.
The special suit is made from carbon nanotubes.
The material is thinner, more flexible, and 50 percent lighter than kevlar.
The suit is believed to be the first of its kind made in Canada.
U.S. President Barack Obama reportedly wore a similar suit for his first inauguration.
The starting cost for a suit of this type is around $20,000.
