The Civilian One backpack is a well-designed, highly functional sophisticated everyday bag from Leatherback Gear. A patented system contains hidden armor panels and a separation zipper that allows the wearer to transform the backpack in seconds into a full torso ballistic protection device. There’s not any product on the market like it that provides full front and back coverage from a backpack design. The bag is rated to Level IIIA protection, rated to stop up to .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum, 9mm, .45 hollow point ammunition, and shotgun blasts. However, the user can enhance their level of ballistic stopping power by adding contents to their backpacks such as a laptop, tablets, textbooks/books, etc.
The backpack is also available in a tactical version which has Molle gear webbing straps. Search for the Tactical One bag if you would like these features. The bag measures 19.5″l x 13.5″w x 7.5″d and weighs 5 lbs 3 oz.
