    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Be a Superhero! (Or maybe just a paranoid twit...)

    Yep, that's right folks. Another paranoia-induced "Self Defense" product for people who feel they're being hunted by ninjas, or minorities.

    But the best thing about this? It could be an OFFENSIVE weapon! (We hope?) Read more:

    The No-Contact Jacket is a wearable defensive jacket created to aid women in their struggle for protection from violence. When activated by the wearer, 80,000 volts of low amperage electric current pulses just below the surface shell of the entire jacket. This exo-electric armor prevents any person from unauthorized contact with the wearer's body. If an assailant were to grab hold of the wearer the high voltage exterior would interrupt their neurological impulses which control voluntary muscle movement. The neuromuscular system would be overwhelmed causing disorientation and loss of balance to occur and of course pain. The pain experienced is non-lethal but is enough to effectively and immediately deter contact with the wearer and provide a critical life saving oppurtunity for escape.

    The goal of the No-Contact Jacket is to call attention to violence against women and to offer an alternative response to the body's vulnerable space and boundaries that society, culture and fashion have created.


    Think about it folks, you could:

    1. Instantly make any BJJ blue belt into a Superhero.
    2. Wear one under your gi during a tournament and breeze through at any level or weight class.
    3. Become an instant walking-lawsuit (almost literally).
    4. Have some really awesome parties.

    The jacket is sold only in petite sizes to prevent assholes like you guys from doing exactly what you're thinking :)
