The question is: Because this is a liquid and the kevlar is "soaked" does this mean that the cost of production is relatively inexpensive and therefore less costly to the consumer for the up-graded armour? Riddle me that---

so is it lighter in the summer - does it get realy heavy when it rains? Can I afford it? Do I care - not really.

The article (unless I missed it) never specifically mentions motorcycle apparel applications, it seems fairly generic, but leaning a bit towards protecting against ballistic and piercing damage. They do mention helmets and gloves, though, and so maybe this technology will filter into future bike garb.
Make it into a spray, and skin becomes instantly toughened! :) (until it kills you).

I've been wearing my 70 oz CamelBack under my armored textile jacket for a few years now -- does that mean I've unknowingly been pioneering the use of Liquid Body Armor?

Depends what you've been drinking there, GrufRude. So, with the CamelBack, are people calling you Quasimodo? Does that ring any bells? (sorry)
