A Utah company is promoting a novel clothing item for the holiday season: A normal-looking hoodie that can also function as a bullet-resistant piece of body armor.

The Lion Shield Bullet Resistant Hoodie, produced by MacGregor Tactical out of St. George, starts at $408 dollars and can get as expensive as $698. It comes in six different sizes and is available for both men and women.

The hoodies do not have their armor built into them, but instead are capable of accepting armor plates into special pockets built into the sweatshirt.
