Kevlar Discussion


 :batfly
 I love the site. There are soo many peaple who are great at making cowl's here. I am wanting a batman Dead End cowl with no mouth opening made with kevlar. Later I would like the rest of the suit but because of cost? Im thinking one piece at a time would be best. My ideal cowl would more or less be a batman dead end cowl with a closed mouth. I've got alot of idea's on how to do it. Kinda a combination of the dead end cowl and a batman beyond cowl.

Welcome to the BOTB. I'm sure something like that can be done, but have you though about breathing?

Welcome, DarkKnightDetective. Good to see you here. Why don't you draw something up and try to interest Jants?

With so many projects right now, I wouldn't have time to make a Dead End style cowl, but if you find someone who makes something similar, I could add all of the Kevlar elements to it, using Zane's instructions.

As long as it's not a direct copy of the DE cowl...in other words this will have a different mouth then I can help you. Not only, but I will imbed the kevlar into the material so that you dont have to wear it like a sock over your head then the cowl.

What's your time frame??

Email me privately at dpea@rogers.com if you like.

Good going, Jants and DAVIDYR1. With a Clooney prototype, I Velcroed and taped the elements in place, and now your art and creativity keep pushin' the 'ol envelope. Best wishes, DarkKnightDetective.

You can't put a kevlar sock onto your head, followed by the cowl. Kevlar is as hard as a rock. You have to add the kevlar into the cowl in segments, so you can still pull the cowl on and have some maneuverability. Then you can back it with something soft, so it doesn't hurt wearing. I prefer to make it so you can remove the kevlar if desired and install them right back instantly.

Actually,
There are Kevlar impregnated cloths.
Windsurfing sails that can withstand the force of 60 mph winds and don't rip easily are made of Kevlar.
Here's a link for Kevlar and nomex hoods:
