No matter how many times soldiers and marines say they’re not interested, there’s always someone trying to wrap them up in heavier, hotter, more uncomfortable armor.

Reader AS points to the latest culprit: MTek Weapon Systems, which is pushing Stormtrooper-esque “facial armor” for our troops.

The mask weighs 1.3 pounds, is compatible with ballistic eyewear, and will stop a bullet from a .44 magnum. So far, there seems to be one marine corporal using the thing in Iraq. We’ll see if more emerge.

But I am preety sure i have seen this in the gaming franchises or in a japanimation?
