Q: How Much Does Each Bulletproof Level Weigh?

  • Level 3A (IIIA): Between 0.8 and 2 pounds, about the weight of a plastic water bottle or a 70-page notebook.

Q: Is the Bulletproof Insert Removable, or Sewn into the Bag?

  • The insert is removable, allowing for separate washing of the backpack and the insert without compromising the plate's integrity.
  • The backpack allows for easy changing of armor inserts, depending on the situation or the child's age.
  • Monitoring the insert's condition is possible to ensure it remains undamaged and maintains high-performance standards.
  • Easy transferability of the bulletproof insert to another backpack or bag when the current one becomes outdated or goes out of style.
  • Rigorous testing of backpacks to ensure comfortable fit and weight distribution with the plates.
  • Flexibility to position the plate in the desired location within the backpack.
  • Note that all backpacks available on the market with sewn-in armor usually only go up to IIIA, which stops pistol-caliber bullets. Our bulletproof backpacks can accommodate plates that offer protection against high-powered rifle rounds with Level III or IV bulletproof ratings because they are detachable.

  • NIJ IIIA: Handguns up to .44 mag and .357.
