This bulletproof backpack shield turns your backpack into a Captain America-like shield!
This Rear Guard bulletproof backpack soft panel insert is made in the USA and is half the thickness of their previous model and weighs less than similar-looking ballistic panels that are imported from China. This thinner, lighter backpack insert has been tested to NIJ level 3A bulletproof standards making them the perfect choice for everyday personal protection. This bulletproof shield is flexible, not a metal plate, and can be bent to fit any pack. Just stuff this tactical insert in your backpack and your backback becomes a bulletproof shield.
Why a bulletproof backpack?
Although most of us will never be on a traditional battlefield, unfortunately, our schools, office buildings, concerts, protest venues, and other public places are all too often turned into war zones that require us to be prepared to take defensive action. Everyone knows to flee at the first sign of an active shooter. The Rear-Guard Bulletproof Backpack Insert keeps you safe during your retreat. When fleeing is not an option, you can remove your backpack and hold it in front of you as a shield.
Will I really be protected?
The Streetwise Rear Guard Backpack Insert instantly converts your ordinary backpack, laptop case, or handbag into a ballistic shield capable of stopping nearly all handgun rounds (even 9mm and .44 Magnum!) as well as protection from sharp or pointed weapons. But don’t take our word for it; these inserts have been tested by an independent facility to National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Level 3A standards. This is the highest level of protection currently available for lightweight, flexible (soft) body armor.
Why not just buy a bulletproof backpack?
Bulletproof backpacks have been on the market for several years. Although they are expensive, they do offer good protection. The problem is that not everybody likes to carry a plain black backpack. So now rather than throwing away perfectly good backpacks which our kids love and buying them an expensive, generic-looking “bulletproof backpack” that they won’t want to carry, our Rear-Guard insert can convert their current backpack into a ballistic shield for about half the cost! When their backpacks wear out or their style changes our insert can be easily removed and transferred to their new one.
What is it made of and is it practical to carry?
Unlike the heavy, rigid chunks of metal used in the past, our Rear-Guard insert is so flexible and lightweight they will not even know they are carrying it. Made of a new high-tech material known as Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), it measures eleven by fourteen inches, weighs 20 ounces, and is flexible enough to conform to whatever it is placed in. Because this backpack insert contains no metal it is airport and TSA friendly to ensure that you and your loved ones will be protected even when traveling.
