AR500 Armor® Level III Backpack Armor 9.5" x 13"
- Product Review (submitted on January 6, 2016):
Bought it since I'm a student and the dimensions fit exactly into the zippered slot on one side of my laptop bag. I left it in the plastic bag it came in, and it makes no noise, even when I run with the bag.
Yes, weight is hefty. The bag is over 20lbs, almost 25 when I load it up with my computer & charger & notebooks. I consider it strength building to lug it around =]
I would not consider for young children, or those still growing - but it's good for adults and just-about-adults.
The price is also excellent for what you are getting. AR500 was my first stop for armor, and I believe it will be my last. Yes, other companies have light-weight products that are advertised to protect, but not multi-hit. Nothing beats a steel plate for that.
