Super Pants Answered

I and my friend are trying to make super pants. They will be waterproof, flameproof, and bulletproof. We are going to sew a climbing harness, shin guards, and kneepads into them. The pants will be made out of Nomax with Kevlar in certain areas. Where can I get Nomax and Kevlar in semi-small quantities, and how can I waterproof them in a way that won't be burned off?

Kevlar isn't hard to find at composite manufacturers, but be warned it is a MAJOR pain in the arse to work with. It separates, fuzzes, and is a general hazard

Yea, I had a kevlar lacrosse shaft that split when I was throwing a poke check. I had to go to the hospital for horrible splinters. Be careful!

Just buy a fire fighters suit, and put the kevlar in plastic bags inside the suit!
