Backpack Shield BP3A Level IIIA Ballistic Plate
These guys are from Austin, TX…and as you know, things made in the center of
Texas have a reputation for being first-class. Whether you’re a college student, doctor, lawyer,
business traveler, or concerned parent…an extra level of precaution might help
safeguard your (or your loved one’s) life in the event of an “Active Shooter”
situation. While you can not control when gun-related violence happens, you can
choose to do something to improve your odds of survival. The Backpack
Shield slides into any backpack as small as 18" by 12”. Once in place, it
provides protection from handgun-caliber bullets and even knife attacks. These
have been discretely carried by USA Federal Air Marshals when traveling. What
does that tell you? The Backpack Shield offers the highest (Level
IIIA) ballistic-resistance for handgun bullets. The Backpack Shield stops
hardened high-velocity 9 mm Full Metal Jacket (copper) and 44 Magnum (SWC)
rounds flat in their tracks. The patented Dupont Kevlar® composite polymer (10
times the strength of steel) opposing multilayer ballistic plate weighs less
than a text book. It measures 17" high by 12 " wide, and is less than 1/2"
thick. There is virtually no damaging “ball-peen hammer” penetration
effect with the Backpack like seen with loose multi fabric "bullet proof vest"
style inserts. When hit, the Backpack Shield does not pocket-deform or “shred”
like other ballistic protection. It laterally flexes, and returns to it’s
original shape, easily surviving multiple hits.
The above plate was
shot with 32 rounds of pistol ammo ranging from 9mm to 45ACP.
Backpack Shield fits inside 1000's of standard size (High School & Collegiate)
backpacks. Also fits in some laptop cases, and similar size bags. Use it
as an Active Shield - Get behind it and all handgun bullets are stopped.
