Get your team-branded World Cup anti-stab vests before they're all sold out

Jan 14, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

Well, you’d like to attend the World Cup in South Africa this June, but how do you protect your vital inner body parts from stabs, cuts, slashes and blows from sharp, edged or spiked weapons? It’s a real dilemma. But now the answer is here! A Johannesburg company is marketing something called the Protektorvest; anti-stab body armor that can be decorated with your favorite team’s national flag, or symbol of your choice. Design yours here.

Our PROTEKTORVEST offers effective protection from potential attacks from blades, knives, bottles and broken glass and turns your stab vest into a special and exclusive fan article.

Video demo following the jump.

As the site indicates, one can decorate his Protecktorvest with any type of message or design. Some helpful ideas:

* “Team Conan”

* Heart with knife in it

* “Rob this guy, he’s not wearing a vest” with arrow pointing to side

* “Wet Protecktorvest Inspector”

* “My other vest is Kevlar”

* Target symbol

* This

    I’ve heard the english can fashion shivs out of just about anything. So if they all know about the vests, they’ll just knuckle-dust us in the face and shiv us when we’re down. No South African will be safe! Jokes — To all the foreignors out there that wonder what this product means:
    1. South Africans are entrepreneurs — we can see product potential in anything. Don’t see a product like this as a warning – see is as an investment opportunity to divest some of your hard-earned euros in an opportunistic, innovative culture.
    2. If it makes you feel safer, by all means, wear it, but when you’re lapping up some S.A sun (our southern hemisphere winters can be quite pleasant) and jolling (it means partying) shed your protective layers and you’ll realise that it’s not a warzone, it’s a beautiful place with much to offer. And all we want if for you to enjoy it, and take back memories of a wonderful experience. And a souvenir, mark-free, protective stab vest.
