Bulletproof Vest
207 Bulletproof vest 1
Inventor William Murdoch
The Bulletproof Vest drew its influence from the Mongolian armour that used layers of silk; Murdoch added a metal plate within his design for added insurance. The inventive Detective calls it his Bullet Resistant Vest.

Historical Reference

  • Genghis Khan was once said to have issued all his horsemen with silk vests, as an arrow hitting silk does not break it but ends up embedded in the flesh wrapped in silk, allowing the arrow to be removed by gently teasing the silk open. These silk vests functioned much like the padded armour used by European and Byzantine soldiers of the era, such as the gambeson.
