    Your best armor is the armor you can afford to wear. That’s why the Armored Republic designed the Backpack Inserts specifically for backpacks, allowing easy integration into an accessory you already take to your daily outings. 

    The Rimelig or Hybrid inserts can fit into your backpack apart from any dedicated department but also fit very well into a hydration or laptop pocket (in most cases alongside your laptop). The Rimelig insert is made of quality Aramid Fiber and laminated Ripstop Nylon, with the edges sonically welded to prevent wear and tear. The Hybrid insert is made of Dupont Kevlar, Spector Shield, and Gold Shield Ballistic Fabrics. Because the panels are soft and flexible, they can be easily placed alongside other items without concern of them being battered or misplaced.

    Tested in accordance with NIJ 0101.06 standards, they are Level IIIA rated armor inserts with multi-hit protection against .357 SIG FMJ Flat Nose (FN) bullets (with a specified mass of 8.1 g) at velocities of up to 1470 ft/s (+/- 30 ft/s), as well as against .44 Magnum Semi-Jacketed Hollow Point (SJHP) bullets with a specified mass of 15.6 g.

    The ideal choice for staying prepared in everyday life; turn your commuter pack into a concealed armored backpack capable of defeating most any round you’re likely to face.
