Ben Hewitt, 23, a student at the University of Montana, prepares to ship a pair of leather pants back to Russia at the post office on E Broadway on Friday afternoon. Over the course of three years, Hewitt hand-made the suit of armor from galvanized steel he procured at Home ReSource in Missoula. Hewitt said he’s had plenty of looks from passersby while wearing the armor. “It’s not by any means normal to see someone walking around in a suit of armor,” he said.
