By Hilary Powell

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Some Charlotte-area students are packing more than just pencils in their book bags in the interest of safety.

  • Store sells 800 a month online and in store
  • Business has seen more than a 20 percent increase in sales
  • Parents should check the guidelines for their child's school to see if they are allowed

Bulletproof backpack panels are in high demand at Premier Body Armor in King's Mountain. The owners say they sell 800 a month online and in store.

The business has seen more than a 20 percent increase in backpack panel sales in the last year.

"I have three boys, you know, they have friends. You know, so word just started spreading. More than anything, the idea of feeling protected," Premier Body Armor president and CEO Frank Stewart said.

 

 

 A CMS spokesperson says parents should check the guidelines of their child's school to see what is allowed on campus.

Fantastic product, durable and built to last

Love it. Fits perfectly in my vest and is made of the most excellent quality materials.

Fine Armor for your 6

My Mazpedition-sized IIIA armor fits very well in my Maxpedition Sling Pack hydration pouch and leaves the loop side free for holster and mag pouches. When slung around to access the pistolI have chest armor in place. Short of wearing body armor this is a great option.
