ENTRY 0008-A: BATMAN (2005)

2005: Batman Begins

•"Nomex Survival Suit" | "Bale Suit I"
Based on an advanced infantry armor system
•The first layer of protection is an undersuit with built-in temperature regulators designed to keep the wearer at a comfortable temperature in almost any condition
•The second layer of protection consists of armor built over the chest, calves, thighs, arms, and back. This armor features a kevlar bi-weave that can stop slashing weapons and can also deflect any bullet short of a straight shot impact, and reinforced joints that allow maximum flexibility and mobility.
•The armor was then coated with a black latex material to dampen Bruce's heat signature, making him difficult to detect with night-vision equipment.
•Made of a graphite material, the cowl acts as a protective helmet.
•An advanced eavesdropping device is concealed within the cowl's right ear and enables Batman to listen in on conversations from a distance.
•Batman's cape is made of "memory cloth"  which is flexible in its normal state, but becomes semi-rigid in a "wing" form when an electric current is passed through it from the microcircuits in his right glove.
•Metal gauntlets with scallops on the forearmsused to block against knives or other stabbing weapons.
