    Perfect Fit

    I purchased this panel for the Eberlestock F5 backpack. I was traveling from NY to FL and felt much better with this product in my bag. I made it through TSA in both terminals without being stopped. I never noticed it while walking around but how could you?! Its as thick as an older tablet and light enough to be ignored when trying to stay under the weight limits when packing. I also purchased a second panel for another bag that was out of stock. Customer service was awesome and helped me out by splitting the order so I was able to have something for the trip. Overall great experience with the company and their products, I have already recommended them to friends and family as I felt much better knowing the had my back, literally. This will be my first stop for future purchases. Thanks Premier!

    BEST EDC backpack EVER!

    I love my F5 switchblade backpack! Even added the Premier Body Armor plate, which is specifically designed for this bag. Very happy with this purchase!

    Awesome addition to a great product!

    Adding this lightweight and thin (!) panel to the F-5 makes it a bit of a better pack due to it stiffening it up a bit. The panel fits perfectly and also fits in my other day packs. The only downside to the one I received (since I'm not Bougie it's ok and I haven't complained to PBA) is it is not co-branded as advertised but only says Premier Body Armor on it. Anyway, it's amazing a panel so thin and light can stop these heavy handgun rounds. Talk about a modern shield! Very cool, well done Premier Body Armor....... Get one or be done!
