Most body armor is useless against rifles but i guess some protection is better than none.
the 5.7mm FN round was invented to penitrate vests and the old 7.62.25 will too.

There's probably enough hand guns and knives out there to make it worth while.

My big project on the roster following the completion of the Grand Redoubt is an all-purpose hazard suit for going topside. I plan to armor every inch of the wearer's body with cheap easily sourced amateur solutions to bullet-proof, heat-proof and impact-proof the wearer of this suit against any and all threats in the post-apocalyptic environment. It will be wirelessly linked via ethernet to the shelter for voice and data comms and be able to access central controller information from outside the shelter.

This armor will be so formidable and terrifying it would cause Robocop to submit a strong nerve signal to his no-longer-extant penis to void his now missing bladder. This armor will have Ironman blowdrying our underwear ten minutes after he sees it and would cause a Transformer Robot to run away screaming like a girly-man with his hands over his head. That's just the helmet, too. :x Wearing this power armor, you could actually lift that guy in the Project Grizzly suit and throw him like a 5 pound sack of rice.

Then all I have to do is get it down to $1000.00 a suit and I'll make ten of them. My primary inspiration is the FALLOUT Power Armor which turns one guy into a tank with legs. That's my dream tech - certainly working by end of 2009, of course. :shock: Well, that might be a bit generous, so let's say 1st quarter 2010 I will roll out the first generation Power Armor suit. :!:

Here's a guy that made something similar to what vault co wants to do.

I'd be intrested in an exo skeleton for lifting heavy stuff. Amazingly cool wish it would come down in price.
