You asked for it. A lightweight, rifle-rated solution for backpacks. This particular backpack armor plate design was created specifically to fit Vertx bags like the Ready pack 2.0, Commuter Sling 2.0, and Gamut series of packs. That said, it will also fit any backpack that is at least 10"Wx16"H.
Special Threat Tested against the following calibers at a distance of 15 meters:
Body armor is legal to own in all 50 states (but we cannot ship to the state of Connecticut as all body armor sales must occur in person).

After learning of the background of Premier Body Armor, having it recommended by a friend and former ATF Agent, plus it's over all light weight, this insert was a no brainer. Add to that, it fit perfectly in my Vertex 2.0 Commuter Sling, it is the best investment for protection, that I could have made!
I purchased the 10x16 for my Viktos Kadre backpack. It fits pretty well in the middle of the pack where the original reinforcement sheet is. Not sure if that's the correct spot for the armor in this bag. It may fit better and other spots on the bag but since it is tapered at the bottom I cannot get it to fit. The Extra Protection this armor gives me is a plus since it seems high caliber is the go-to for everybody. Relatively light for what it is. I am happy with my purchase and will get another for my Perimeter 40 pack.
This plate is relatively light and fit perfectly inside my goruck gr1. Highly recommend it and I’m very grateful for the military discount.
I bought this intending to use it with my original Vertx Commuter Sling (the '1.0'). It fits into the armor pockets well, but due to its thickness, I cannot both have the armor and also have a firearm in the CCW compartment, even slim single-stack guns. This is more of a criticism of the bag design than the plate and it might not apply to the Commuter 2.0, but since the plate is designed for this line of bags, it would have been nice to have that information in the product description.
Very happy with the price and fast shipping. I like the weight and size. I have it in my Vertx Gamut Checkpoint. I could only rate it a 4 at this point. If at any point the insert is struck by a bullet. I will revisit my rating.
