The Defender Hoodie is bullet proof, YES, bullet proof in the main body area.

In Mobile Alabama police are moving towards banning the sale of all hoodies that can be zipped over or hide the face. These hoodies don’t just zip up to the top of the neck but actually zip over the entire head with just eyeholes. The potential ban is the result of an increased use of these masked hoodies in robberies in Mobile.
The ordinance would bad the sale of these hoodies. The police are also asking parents to remove any of these hoodies from their children’s wardrobe to avoid them being targeted as criminals. There is already an ordinance in Mobile that bans masks that covers individuals faces in public but it doesn’t apply to hoodies that aren’t zipped up all the way.
What do you think? Are masked hoodies used for anything besides crimes? Should masked hoodies be banned? For more information check out AL.com
A Who Killed Obama hoodie was spotted in the window of Apollo Braun at 193 Orchard Street on the Lower East Side in New York. Doron Braunshtein, a.k.a. Apollo Braun explained to a reporter that he supports Obama but is just expressing what he feels everyone is talking about on a t-shirt. Braun believes the Who Killed Obama hoodie is a form of performance art and “it all relates to his “opposites theory,” which is about the clash of different motifs to cause something to new to be created. ‘I’m very punk rock,’ Braun explains”. Braun T-shirts and hoodies aren’t cheap because they are one of a kind. His products sell for $129-$250.

There are some new discussions of whether or not hoodies should be banned. Crime such as violence, vandalism, theft and disorder are on the rise and unfortunately part of our culture. According to a recent newspaper in the UK in every case “the killer’s sullen face was hidden beneath the disguise of feral society – the hooded top”.
The arguement is that people are hiding behind their hoodies making them faceless and very difficult to catch after crimes. Others wearing hoodies on the streets, trains, buses and shopping centres are thought to also be intimidating. The Sunday Express wants the police to order that police officers order hoods to be removed in public places. If peoples faces were always visible potential law breakers may not conduct as many public crimes because of the risks of getting caught on CCTV.
According to the newspaper: “Hoodies are a definite problem because they introduce a fear of the unknown.” This is a ridiculous arguement that inhibits the rights of people to keep their head warm and dry. Why not ban hats and long hair also?
