It provides NIJ level IIIA protection which means it will stop a .44 Magnum or .357 SIG at just 5 yards. This is a very protective panel. Level IIIA is the highest level typically achieved by soft armor and is the same level that the BulletSafe bulletproof vest uses to protect police officers, security guards, and people in dangerous situations. The BulletSafe Bulletproof Backpack Panel is made by a well-known bulletproof vest manufacturer in the same facility using the same materials as their vests.
This bullet proof backpack panel can be used inside a backpack, plate carrier, briefcase, book bag, bug-out bag or even a purse. It is a very versatile size and can be used in a number of different situations.
The panel is 10 inches by 12 inches and weighs just 20 ounces (1.25 lbs). 10" x 12" is a standard size for body armor and ensures that this panel is compatible with almost all plate carriers. Unlike steel plates, The Bulletsafe Bulletproof Backpack Panel uses High Density Polyethylene to stop bullets and remain lightweight and flexible. This panel may be inexpensive, but only because it is made by a company that already manufacturers bulletproof vests.
Unlike other panels, the BulletSafe panel is enclosed in a washable, 600 denier polyester carrier. This carrier provides a tough outer shell so that you don't have to worry about carrying other items in your backpack. The BulletSafe bulletproof backpack panel is rugged enough for everyday use even in the rough and tumble environment of a child's backpack.
Instead of bulletproof backpack which come in limited styles, this product can be used with any backpack or bag.
