The Bodyguard Bulletproof Switchblade Backpack is an innovative backpack designed to conceal a rapidly deployed front and back coverage vest that assembles in mere seconds. This product offer is for the backpack carrier with lightweight Level III protection plates included. A version of the backpack kit that is lighter, but only provides Level IIIA soft amor protection against handguns and shotguns can be found HERE. The backpack can accept up to (2) 10″ x 12″ and 1″ thick lightweight ballistic plates or (1) 11″ x 14″ front and (1) 16″ x 12″ back soft armor level IIIA panels. The backpack by itself weighs 3.5 lbs and with Level III plates it weighs 10 lbs.
When needed, the bulletproof vest deploys by reaching the pull tabs over the shoulders and pulling the concealed vest up and over the head. The advantage of such a deployment system is that it allows the defender to keep moving to safety without needing to stop and take the backpack off to convert it into a vest. The backpack has ample room for storage of textbooks, a laptop, etc., and molle webbing on the frontside of the carrier which allows for connecting a pistol holster or other equipment. The bag is available in Black or Gunmetal Gray.
