So a roadside bomb can blast through thick armour, but a quickly inflated balloon will protect it? I don't get it....

Anything heavy enough to protect from an IED, expanding infront of you, is likely to batter you to death, FFS
Hence my wacky 'airbags on inside' suggestion. Trouble is, even an airtbag inflated explosively cannot excellerate and outrun an already mature blastwave. Surely.
