Unfortunately, active shootings are on the rise. Bulletproof backpacks can provide you and your family with convenient, low cost, life saving protection. They will also help give you peace of mind in an uncertain world. While no product can make you invincible in an active shooter incident, bulletproof backpacks and armor plates offer at least some protection against fatal gunfire and may even save you or your child’s life.
At Emergency Supplies Direct, we hope no child will ever need to use such a product, but it is still better to be prepared. Therefore, we carry ballistic backpacks and bags in assorted colors and styles both for adults and kids. We also carry inserts that you can simply slide into your backpack, briefcase, or computer bag to help give you protection from many ballistic threats. These backpacks and inserts mimic the bulletproof vests that are worn by the law enforcement for protection against a majority of handgun rounds. However, while bulletproof plates and shields may absorb a handgun bullet’s impact, they must not be used as your first line of defense in an active shooter situation, you must always follow the practices of hiding, fleeing, and fighting.
