    Happy but hope I never use it!

    I’m a contractor who specializes in high end homes in the SF Bay Area, primarily Oakland and the surrounding neighborhoods; needless to say, I take precautions
    My 5.11 Overwatch messenger bag goes everywhere with me and the Premier Body Armor insert fits perfectly in the main pocket, and leaves plenty of room for my 14‚ÄĚ MacBook Pro when I‚Äôm carrying that. My everyday [computer] carry is an iPad Pro and that lives in the dedicated pocket on the back of the bag, which is a little too snug to stuff the body armor plate into as is; however, if someone wanted to they could cut the suspension straps at the bottom of that exterior pocket and it should fit the Premium insert. They also make smaller ones that could fit without any cutting necessary so keep that in mind if you have one of these bags
    The insert is exactly what I was looking for, it’s lightweight and flexible, so I don’t know it’s there. Quality of construction and materials feels excellent and a hile I never intend to test its resilience, I have the peace of mind that there’s more than a simple nylon bag there to protect me
    I’ll be ordering more for my adult kids ahead of the Holidays, talk about great stocking stuffers!


    I love it it fits nicely in my edc sling pack and so light weight you can tell it's in there..

    Perfect Fit!

    The 5.11 Backpack insert fits perfectly in its respective pocket. You would never notice it was there as it makes no altering changes when wearing it. The fact that it is bullet resistant brings a level of peace to mind.
