Our DefendAPack stand-alone backpack is our most economical option. This option includes an unsuspecting trendy backpack and one NIJ Approved detachable bulletproof plate. The plate slides inside the backpack in an interior pocket slot. The backpack is made of 1680 Ballistic Denier Nylon (the same as the World War II Army jackets). The user simply uses the backpack as a shield in active shooter situations by wearing the backpack in front or back of the body. The design allows for super quick deployment. During an emergency, the DefendAPack™ Backpack can put on in seconds! This option is a great starter pack as it can be upgraded to include a vest at a later date.
You might choose this option if cost is a major factor or if the user will be a small child. Additional NIJ Level IIIA and III Bulletproof Plates can be added to the DefendAPack Backpack, to offer further protection. Each backpack comes with 2 liners. One small to use when carrying the backpack only and one large to use at a later date should you decide to upgrade and purchase a double-sided bulletproof vest that would then be stored behind the larger liner.
Choose NIJ Level IIIA (2.0 lbs) or NIJ Level III (4.0 lbs)
