Make Any Backpack A Bulletproof Backpack
The BulletSafe Bulletproof Backpack Panel
This bulletproof backpack panel transforms any backpack into a bulletproof backpack. This allows you the freedom to choose any backpack or to make your current backpack into a bulletproof backpack. This bulletproof panel will fit almost anywhere so you can use it in a briefcase, laptop bag, or shooter's bag. This versatile bulletproof panel uses the same ballistic materials as our bulletproof vest. Place it inside a backpack, briefcase, bug-out bag or even a purse. It provides NIJ level IIIA protection, which means it will stop almost all handgun rounds including a .44 Magnum.
Our bulletproof backpack panel measures 10 inches by 14 inches and weighs just 24 ounces (1.5 lbs). It is flexible and lightweight. Our bulletproof backpack panel measures 0.55 inches thick or just over 1/2 inch.
The BulletSafe Bulletproof Backpack panel is durable and washable. Unlike other bulletproof panels, ours is enclosed in a 600 denier polyester carrier. This carrier provides a tough outer shell so that you don't have to worry about your kids damaging it while carrying other items in their backpack. Whether they are carrying screwdrivers or snakes, our bulletproof backpack panel will last for 5 years.
Backpack Panel vs. Bulletproof Backpack:
Here is why you should choose a bulletproof backpack panel instead of bulletproof backpack. Our panel is guaranteed to stop bullets for at least 5 years. That is longer than a kid's backpack will last. It is a mistake to buy a bulletproof backpack, because once the backpack is worn or torn you can no longer use it. If you buy a bulletproof panel like this one, you can move the panel from backpack to backpack for years. A kid can use it in their Pikachu backpack, then their high school backpack, then even use it in college in their computer bag.
Our bulletproof backpack panel's unique outer casing is also washable. Anyone with kids knows that their backpack isn't always clean, so our backpack panel can get dirty and then be laundered. To clean it, just remove the outer casing and put that in the wash. The BulletSafe bulletproof backpack panel is rugged enough for everyday use and will last for 5 years, longer than a single backpack.
Designed For Anyone To Use:
Here is the project video that started this product. Initially we weren't sure whether to make a bulletproof backpack panel. Do kids really need them? We didn't know. So, we enlisted my kids and made a video for Kickstarter. The result was an overwhelming demand for the product.
For Our Kids and Your Kids:
Originally, the BulletSafe Bulletproof Backpack Panel was designed by our company President for his children's backpacks. Our company then launched a successful Indiegogo campaign and the public responded. People wanted the opportunity to buy a bulletproof panel at a reasonable price and our panel offered additional features (washability, durability) that help it survive in a kid's backpack. Here is the video from that campaign featuring the Nardone family.
Since the success of that campaign, our panel is now available to everyone. Like our vest, the BulletSafe Backpack Panel is priced so that anyone can afford ballistic protection.
Who can buy a bulletproof vest?
Almost anyone can order a bulletproof vest from us. Unless you are a convicted violent felon, you can legally order, own, and wear a bulletproof vest. The law does not limit your ability to be safe. We ship vests to 49 states (not Connecticut, and not internationally). If you live in Connecticut, you are required to buy a vest "in person" from one of our dealers.
Who buys bulletproof vests.
Bulletproof vests are popular for armored car personnel, police officers, security guards, ATM service technicians, repo men, investigators, pawn brokers, gas station attendants, avid shooters, hunters, preppers, and anyone else who wants to protect themselves from danger. No one wants to die at work, so people at risk buy BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests.
Why is it a vest?
The bulletproof vest has evolved into a vest shape to protect your most vital organs and keep you alive if there is an incident. Body armor is most comfortable when it is lightweight and you can move freely. For these reasons, a vest is the best configuration. A large bulletproof vest offers twice the protection area of a plate carrier with two 10x12 plates. If you want to protect yourself on the job, you want a bulletproof vest.
What are the pouches on the front and back for?
If you ever decide that you want protection from rifle rounds or heavier weaponry, you'll need to acquire ballistic plates. We have a great plate at a great price as well and it fits perfectly in these pockets. Our lightweight ceramic plates will fit in BulletSafe vests size SM-4X, while our Ultralight PE plates fit in Medium-4X BulletSafe Vests. Our Extra Small vests do not have space for the pouches.

Is it comfortable?
The BulletSafe Vest features a CoolMax rear liner and fully adjustable top and side straps. These features make it more comfortable than many bulletproof vests. Still, bulletproof vests in general are not very comfortable and ours is no different.
