    Stab resistant vests (often worn by prison guards) are usually made of kevlar. Perhaps it just depends on the weave. In any case, Arrow would benefit from some sort of body armor. A quick google showed that the stab resistant vests are as light as 3lbs, much thinner and lighter, I think, than bullet proof vests.

    Our CW station has a great HD signal. There is also Hulu+ if you have streaming.

    Wasn't there a scene in a Mike Grell "Green Arrow" where Ollie talked about how Kevlar won't tear, but it's easily cut by a broadhead arrow? I seem to remember it being a plot point that made his arrows better than guns in certain situations.

    I believe that you are correct however Justen disagrees with Grell.

    It may not specifically be Kevlar but we know that Batman has lined his suit with bullet and knife resistant materials.

    I don't think it's a stretch to think that Ollie may have done something similar.

    The dude shot an arrow with a bomb attached to it. I think I could deal with it if he had arrow stopping armor, whether it exists or not.

    In the movies, Batman's suit looks quite stiff. It is not hard to stop an arrow if you use metal or ceramic plates in your vest.

    With the phony Arrow EVERYBODY gets to be a masked superhero/villain!

    Walter becomes The Black Aristocrat? Or is that Diggle?
    Mom will be Mother Shooter and take on the triad?
    Sis can be Arrowess?
    Lauren becomes the Esquiress?
    IT girl becomes Windows 8er?
    Tommy, with no money, just puts on a mask and becomes The Poor Boy?

    I figured Sis's new boyfriend was the baddie this time. Didn't ya think that he had planted a bug in the flowers Mom carried and placed so it could hear her talking to Walter? How many husbands and wives go, "Honey, can you spare a moment to talk?" and besides they have the family gathering so Ollie can tell them he's doing the Christmas party.

    Once a 1%er, always a 1%er. When the revolution comes, the 99% won't check his bank balance before they line him up against the wall.

    Right next to Richie Rich.

    Being knife resistant may not be the same. What kind of velocity does a knife come at? I would think between the Speed, force and sharpness of an arrow it wouldn't be very effective.
