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:
This rifle-rated backpack insert has been tested to meet and exceed NIJ Level 3 protection. To learn more about the NIJ body armor standards, visit our Understanding Body Armor Ratings blog.

The Stratis Level III+ plate is a high quality, lightweight plate for the threat level protection that it affords. It fits into my backpack very nicely! It gives me the additional piece of mind over a level IIIA panel, when necessary. But, actually, I have a nice IIIA panel from PBA, as well. Sometimes, I exchange the plate for the panel, or vice versa. Sometimes, I have both in my pack. It depends on where I’m going, of course, and what kind of environment, I’ll be in. I’m in a large urban area most of the time. Of course, I don’t expect a level III+ and IIIA, together, to be a substitute for a level IV plate, but, I have the plate and panel, anyway, so often just carry them both.
I couldn't be happier with this plate. I spent a lot of time looking for something that was level III+ and lightweight enough to carry, when loaded down with everything else and this plate did the job.
Excellent Quality and I honestly hope I never have to use it, but glad that I have it.
The shipping was very fast and the product was packaged well and in good shape. Added this to my middle schooler’s backpack. It adds some weight but I’m impressed at its capability given how light and thin it is. I pray every day we will never have to use it but I’m glad this product exists just in case.
After the Nashville shooting I bought the bookbag armor for my son. This is a company I believe and trust in especially to give my son a fighting chance. Thanks Premier like I said before you’ve got a customer for life!!!!
Measurements are spot on. Make sure your inside dimensions of your backpack can fit the size. Mine fits into the laptop sleeve of a Fjallraven Raven 20L perfectly with no room for wobble.
