Soft Backpack Armor
Turn your favorite backpack into an everyday handgun protection with our Soft Backpack Armor: Tested to Level IIIA standards, this panel will protect the wearer from all pistol threats, stopping the rounds used in 95% of shooting incidents. Flexible, and weighing as little as 1.5 pounds, you can wear this armor for long periods of time without even noticing it. Also, at 15 inches tall and 11 inches wide, it can fit most any backpack while still providing expansive coverage.
Your best armor is the armor you can afford to wear. That’s why AR500 Armor designed this panel (see specifications below) specifically for backpacks, allowing easy integration into an accessory you already take to your daily outings.
This panel can fit into your backpack apart from any dedicated department, but also fits very well into a hydration or laptop pocket (in most cases alongside your laptop). The Rimelig panel is made of quality Aramid Fiber and laminated Ripstop Nylon, with the edges sonically welded to prevent wear and tear. The even lighter Hybrid panel is made from Dupont Kevlar with Spector Shield and Gold Shield Ballistic Fabric. Because these 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, this Level IIIA armor grants 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.
