Project Grizzly Review


OK
Attacked by a grizzly bear at the age of 19, Troy Hurtubise decided to see if he couldn't design a suit to resist the attack of one of the world's most fearsome creatures. That this idea came to him during a screening of RoboCop says quite a bit about Hurtubise's character.
