Know More About Bulletproof Backpacks

All you need to know about Bulletproof Backpacks

In the past few years, school shootings have become more and more common in America. In light of these tragic events, people are looking for ways to keep their kids safe during the day while they’re out of the house or at school.

One solution that is gaining popularity is bulletproof backpacks, this article will show you how these backpacks work and which one to choose based on your needs and budget!

What is a Bulletproof Backpack?

A bulletproof backpack is a backpack bag that has ballistic material built-in. Those backpacks are bullet-resistant, not bulletproof. Due to the lifesaving nature of these bags, they must be tested to ensure they cannot be penetrated by projectiles.

Backpacks vary in materials and protection levels as well as overall cost. There are two main types of protective backpack paneling: hard armor plates or soft armor panels. Hard Armor Plates  (HAP) are made of metals like steel, titanium alloy or ceramic (commonly used on armored vehicles), which have been hardened into a plate form and then applied to a bag. Soft Panels (SAP) are level IIIA panels similar to those used in vests and are constructed using fibers such as Kevlar aramid fiber. We find those to be a perfect compromise between mobility and protection. Soft armor panel is more lightweight than metal and offers a lighter alternative while maintaining the same protection level.

Do bulletproof backpacks work?

The short answer is – YES, they do work. Such backpacks are capable of stopping multiple rounds when a proper ballistic panels are inserted. Basically they work same as bulletproof vest: ballistic panel incorporated in the bag is designed to stop handgun or rifle threats depending on the level of protection you will choose. Also they are lighter and much more comfortable than traditional vests.

What can bulletproof backpacks protect against?

Depending on the type of backpack inserts you will equip your backpack with, it can protect from handgun threats like 9mm round or .44 Magnum (National Institute of Justice level IIIA) or rifle threats such as 7.62×51 M80 or even .30-06 round if you decide to wear Level 4 body armor (National Institute of Justice level IV) in your backpack. Ace Link Rapid Deploy Backpack comes with standard with 2pcs Level IIIA Soft ballistic panels capable of stopping all handgun threats.

If you’re looking for enhanced protection, make sure you check our stab proof Soft Armor Panels which when inserted, provide additional protection against stabs and slashes.

Are bulletproof backpacks worth it?

Well, if you’re talking about kids and their level of safety then yes. You certainly don’t want your child to get hit by a stray bullet while he/she is sitting in a classroom with other students or going for an after school activity or even walking home from school! That is extra peace of mind that bulletproof backpack will bring to you.

For adults bulletproof backpacks can be a great asset as well! If you’re traveling in an area where there is a high chance of being robbed or shot, bulletproof backpack could save your life! It’s like carrying bulletproof vest – it protects from seemingly random gun shots when you least expect them.

Nowadays bulletproof backpacks are not expensive at all since they became very popular and people started looking for secure ways to protect their kids. It is just another tool that can help keep you safe but we strongly recommend taking proper training before using one of these bags so the risks are eliminated.

Are Bulletproof backpacks legal?

In the USA bulletproof backpacks are legal. There are no regulations on buying bulletproof clothing so it can be purchased and used legally. Some states have restrictions on what is considered body armor, so it’s important to be aware of the law in your area before ordering a bulletproof item.

It is also advisable that you first have a conversation with your children about the purpose to carry a bulletproof backpacks or vest as well as what they should do if they find themselves in a situation where a bullet-resistant article of clothing is needed. Education is very important – invest in peace of mind today!

Is it illegal to wear body armor in school?

Wearing a ballistic body armor is not illegal. You can wear bulletproof vests and or other tactical gear to school as long as you’re not using them during the committing of a crime.

Bulletproof backpacks can be worn to school or a sporting event as long as it is not used during the committing of a crime. Education properties are considered safe zones for and bulletproof bags. It’s also important that parents speak with school officials to ensure that safety measures are implemented in schools.

Are bullet proof backpacks worth the cost?

We would say yes, especially in states where gun violence has increased and your child’s school doesn’t have a proper security system in place. While this might seem like overkill, you can’t put a price on you feeling better knowing that your loved one will be safe during a shooting situation!

Even if you don’t think there is a high chance of being shot while in school, ballistic backpack might help protect from random shooting and violence. We recommend all parents to have them at home (just in case) just like they have fire extinguisher (in case of house fire). It’s important to be prepared!

How much does a bulletproof backpack cost?

Bullets proof backpacks come in many different styles, sizes, and prices but bullet resistant gear can range from $100-$1000 or more. You should determine what part of your body you’re most concerned with protecting first when looking into bullet proof products. Once you’ve done this it’s easier to decide the style of bulletproof vest or backpack that suits your needs best!

Rapid Deploy Backpack
I’ve done my research on the backpacks with the deploy vest and this is my favorite and I’m very happy with my purchase! Backpack has plenty of room, pockets and 2 main compartments. Fits a folded 10.5 AK/bufferless type rifles. Mine has a shotgun in it now. Been practicing quick draws with it from deploying the backpack. I put a horizontal pistol holster and a plate extension on the bottom so more coverage and still fits nicely and pulls out quick with the extra gear attached. A buddy saw me deploy and draw the pistol and now he wants a few for the whole family. The front pocket is big and can be access on each side but has a soft velvet interior.

Rapid Deploy Backback

4 out of 5
rapid deploy bulletproof backpack black molle5
Rapid Deploy Backpack
Pros: It looks sleek, things blend in, the molle stand out in certain light but it looks more like a modernized biker bag rather than a tactical bag IMO. Nice padding on the back and straps. It is quite easy to access the carrier. Laptop sleeve pocket fits my 16 in Mac. 1 big pocket, 1 outer pocket, several smaller pockets in the 1 big pocket and the side bottle holders are decent. It has a straps for a Mat or a sleeping bag at the bottom which is useful if you are into that. The pull tab that unlatches the carrier compartment, is easy to use and put back together. seems pretty general and could be easily replaced. Cons: It quite heavy out of the box. Depending on the plates chosen to put in the carrier, it could weight a fair amount. The plate carrier could hold heavier plates but I would probably refrain from putting lvl 4 plates. Soft plates would work best in this carrier. There is a lot of stuff that hangs from the bag. It has straps that could be used as waist straps but their intended purpose is to tighten the plate carrier. Those straps however just hang, it looks a bit messy. I just used rubber bands to consolidate the straps. The pull tab that unlatches the carrier compartment, while easy to use and put back together, may get lost so I would recommend figuring out a way to connect it to the bag being that it seems to be the only thing holding the carrier compartment from being exposed. However it doesn’t seem to be something that couldn’t be easily replaced. Over I have a positive look about this bag, may cut off some of the molle just for my own preference, but in reality most people are so involved in their own world they won’t even notice. It is fairly prices for what you get, a tank of a jansport would probably cost about the same without the carrier. I had no issues with customer service, everyone was extremely helpful and quick to respond, even with a back order I received my package pretty quickly. Glad to see a california based company fight against the regime providing armor and armor carrying products to the populous for an affordable price.

Great Concept, Uncertain Longevity

Rapid Deploy Backpack
The backpack does exactly what is advertised. Looks and feels nice, relatively easy to deploy front armor, but did not include any instructions for use/care. The front armor straps seems to be very weakly secured inside the storage pouch. It is only a thin layer of slick fabric that is securing the whole front armor panel. Seems like a big weak point.

It's not a Masad it needs side panels for side plates. The deployment is comparable to most others. For 125.00 it's a deal but I'll end up spending what a masad cost to bring it up to israelie specs for protection
