Default Bear proof suit.

Thought this was pretty funny. Old, but the first time I've seen or hear of this. Guess the feller was really pretty smart with his other inventions. But this video did make me laugh a bit with the suit's testing.

Funny video but I’m not buying the “bear proof” part. If a human can put it on, a bear can take it off.

I have to admire the guys enthusiasm and dedication. But I’m not sold on the suit till he jumps out of an airplane or lays on a railroad track. I think that my best defense against a grizzly if ever confronted is the fact that not only am I gonna taste like chit I’m gonna smell even worst.

Anyone notice him jumping upward right before impact? I kinda know what that's like, having had it happen to me twice in real life, without the bear suit.

What doesn’t kill ya makes you stronger. Except bears. Bears will tear into that suit for fun and kill you in the process.

And then perhaps eat part of you since you’re dead and didn’t play the game you started.

Oh, and great video OP! Thanks for the laugh.

I don’t see how he didn’t get drain bramage from that truck collision! Coup counter coup similar to shaking baby syndrome! I wonder if the dudes still kicking?
