The DefendAPack Backpack transforms from an unsuspecting trendy backpack, into a double-plated (NIJ Approved), detachable, ballistic vest, that can be securely fit in 15 seconds or less, by almost all ages and sizes. Quick reaction to an active shooter situation. The DefendAPack™ Vest and Backpack are both made from 1680 Ballistic Denier Nylon (the same as the World War II Army jackets).
Includes one backpack, one vest and two NIJ approved bulletproof panels.
This is our most versatile option. Users remove the vest from a hidden panel in the back of the backpack. Once the vest is on, the user is protected with panels in front and back and the ballistic nylon also offers projectile protection around the sides. In addition, the user can shield the face with the remaining backpack to protect from flying projectiles with an additional plate insert (available for purchase), for further protection.
Choose NIJ Level IIIA (4.0 lbs) or NIJ Level III (8.0 lbs)
Each backpack comes with 2 liners. One small to use when carrying the backpack and vest separately and one large to use when storing the vest behind the panel.
