AR500 Armor® Armored Backpacks are built to stop the bullets used in 95% of gun-related homicides. These lightweight backpacks are suitable for daily use by adults and children alike. Because the armor is concealed, no one will know that your backpack doubles as a life-saving device. With the included soft armor panels, they will stop the most common firearm attacks with a level IIIA pistol-rated panel capable of stopping up to six 44 Magnum rounds at 1440 feet per second. Our armored backpacks can also be upgraded to a rifle-rated level III+ Lightweight steel plate.
