I think that cleverly designed armour can have a place in the modern wizarding world, but I doubt it would include Kevlar or ceramic plates. I'd imagine wizards would have no idea what Kevlar even is, and wouldn't see any reason to use dragon hide instead. Similarly, I don't think wizards would really grasp the protective potential of ceramics - they'd probably think it's a stupid idea to make armour out of hardened clay plates, essentially.Originally Posted by angelicxdiscord
There was one armour suit I read about in some fanfic - it was dragon scale interwoven with Demiguise hair (same stuff invisibility cloaks are made of), so it offered good protection against mid-range curses and made the wearer harder to see by distorting (but not completely concealing) the parts of the body covered by the armour.
