TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
This website is operated by DefendAPack, LLC. DefendAPack is a Registered Trademark with the USPTO, with rights included therein. Any use or reuse of the word or logo in any form, without the written permission of the owners is strictly prohibited.
DefendAPack products are designed to enhance the safety in schools, and college classroom safety as well as to provide individual child and children's safety, teacher safety, staff safety, as well as workplace safety and other public places.
Always follow safety and security policies procedures and use good personal safety tactics when wearing or using any DefendAPack product.
It is important to know that No body armor or ballistic resistant material or product has been created that is 100% bullet proof.
The terms Bullet proof, Bulletproof Backpack, Bulletproof Backpacks, Bullet proof Backpack, Backpack plate, Bullet proof backpacks and bulletproof vest, bullet proof vest and vests, bullet proof clothes and bulletproof clothing are generally accepted popular descriptive terms applied to DefendAPack products in order to explain ballistic resistant material classification.
Ballistic Protection may also save lives in a bomb blast with fragmentation shrapnel and explosive incidents.
There are thousands of cases of shrapnel being stopped by body armor.
However, shrapnel and fragments can take so many shapes and forms that it is very difficult to "rate" the levels of protection. Ammunition based rating systems, like the NIJ Threat Level system, seem to be the best way to measure the strength of a material in a projectile impact blast protection test.
Threat Level IIIA is the HIGHEST level of protection available in soft body armor (vests). Level III is a higher level of protection in the form of "hard" armoring: Ceramic, Composite or Metal Plates in pockets that protect the most vital, center of mass, organs, other than the head.
Please refer to our body armor information to understand the different Levels of protection that is explained by the NIJ.

Body armor is legal in all 50 states for law-abiding citizens.
As a US citizen or resident of the US you have the right to protect yourself. You have the right to own a bulletproof vest. However, that right to own a bulletproof vest is automatically taken away if you commit a violent crime. The James Guelff and Chris McCurley Body Armor Act of 2002 stipulates that no person previously convicted of a violent crime may purchase, own or possess body armor. If you have been convicted of a violent felony, you cannot own a bulletproof vest of any kind.
Body armor is legal in all 50 states with ONLY the following three restrictions:
- Body Armor is illegal if you have been convicted of a violent felony.
- Body armor may not be shipped to a civilian in Connecticut. Body armor purchases in Connecticut are not allowed by Connecticut state regulations to occur over the internet; they MUST be made only through an in-person store purchase.
- Wearing body armor while committing a crime will increase penalties greatly. Body armor was not designed for nor intended for criminals!
You can purchase your products online and take delivery in 49 of the 50 states. The one exception is Connecticut, which requires that you buy a bulletproof vest in person, not online for delivery. You can still own a bulletproof vest if you live in Connecticut, we just cannot ship vests to Connecticut.
