20140304191158-back-pack-panel-web-photo-square

BulletSafe is currently running an Indiegogo campaign for soft armor backpack inserts. Based on custom inserts made by BulletSafe president Tom Nardone for his children’s backpacks, these panels are constructed from the same material as the BulletSafe Bulletproof Vest, and offer NIJ level IIIA protection. The panel runs 10″ by 12″ in size, and can be utilized as additional protection in packs, bags, briefcases, and more.

    There are already backpack inserts at reasonable prices and more importantly made in the USA. The owner of this company can tout all he wants about his inserts having the same quality even though they’re made outside the USA. I wouldn’t dare depend on some Chinese/ Indonesian or whatever insert to protect my child.

      I can name things all day that you protect your child with that are made overseas. I prefer American made but the notion that something is unreliable simply because it was made overseas went out in the 80s.

      • Leslie says:

        Tell that to all the parents whose babies died from malamine in their baby’s formula. And if the idea of American or any other reputable country “went out in the 80’s, then let’s go ahead and arm our troups with Chinese firearms and Chinese knock-off Aimpoints.

        • SSD says:

          Okay, I’ll play your silly game. Tell me how you posted this comment. You sure as hell didn’t do it by osmosis and you didn’t do it on a computer Made in USA either. And then we can go over your and junior’s entire day and discuss every object you both encounter/use and point out its origin. You live in the real world, where stuff is made overseas. Even stuff you have to rely on to live.

          • Leslie says:

            Actually, there is nothing that we have to rely on to live than what is around us. Everything else is a tool or resource that we hope will improve our lives. We have no problem buying foreign made items, like Geman firearms and optics or Japanese autos and electronics. Even our batteries we choose Japanese made rather than Chinese:

            my wife (Nuclear Security Officer) learned of $20,000 scopes ruined by venting from cheaply constructed Chineese batteries – the scopes manufacturerer specifically warned of such batteries, but the word hadn’t reached the security team using the scopes.

            As I already mentioned, there was the Melanine in the baby powder (2008?), as well as the drywall that ruined hundreds, or thousands of homes, because of too much sulfur (?) in its manufacture – people couldn’t stand the stink of their own homes, let alone he health problems consequent. We’ve bought a few packs and bags that were unusable because of the smell that was still pouring off years later. all products of China

            You said yourself, you prefer to buy domestic products when you can, and that was my wife’s point (his is here husband,since the previous reply). There are domestic sourced bullet proof plates already available.

            A product like that can not fail when needed. Beyond allowing your custumers to conduct a number of random tests (shooting the plates) how else are we able to trust in the product? Apart from your own word, and that of from whomever you are getting the plates. Correct me if I am wrong, but the plates are degraded each time they are shot?

            Until you introduce your source to the public, and allow them and the product to be scrutinized, why would any parent buy one of these plates when there is a domestic alternative?

            • DGR says:

              Care to explain how many people died from faulty American made vehicles? Just because its domestic doesn’t mean there is any kind of good quality control.

    Hi Guys, It’s Tom from BulletSafe. Thanks for writing about our new product. I wanted to point out it’s unique features. While there are other flexible armor panels on the market, some that sometimes sell near our price, none I have seen was actually durable enough to live in child’s backpack. They are simply repurposed soft armor panels designed to be used in plate carriers.

    As a guy with three kids I designed a product specifically for use by them. The BulletSafe Backpack Panel comes with a durable, washable outer casing, so that your child can put books, sharp object, shoes, melting ice cream cones, and other junk in their backpack with the panel. It’s a better solution.

    Also, did you notice that we are looking for retailers? After the Indiegogo campaign, this product will be available in stores for $99 retail.

    Thanks again for the mention.

    • Jason says:

      Sounds good. Since they’re kids, the panels really do need to be more durable. If the panel can stand up to the same kinda crap most kids put their beater $40 Jansports through, it’ll be G2G.

    I’d like to see more about the outer carrier, like dragging it on the pavement with the weight of 2 or 3 books and stabbing it with pencils. Like mentioned above this is not a new idea and there MIGHT be something better out there for more money, but something is better then nothing. I have had many dealings with LE and security that had used armor, not best but at least it was something. So I say go for it, make inserts heck see about making backpacks, messenger/laptop bags and even briefcases. If one life is saved its a worthwhile endeavor.

  4. Jason says:

    NIJ IIIA? Still not good enough for Gecko45 lol. He’d want Level IV for the front and back!

    His kids will carry on his legacy by taking rounds so the other kids don’t have to.
