    Very impressed with how well it fit In the bag. I have the Transit 2.0. Also shipping was very quick and customer service was great when I asked a few questions. Will definitely be buying other products.

    Used in 5.11 bag

    I got this insert for the 5.11 LV10 Sling Bag 2.0 13 liter since there isn’t a bag specific insert for it. It just fits in the big main compartment if you push it to the front and close and zip the flap over it. I must have not measured well because I didn’t expect it to be such a tight fit but it does fit and this way it’s in front of the IFAC I carry in the bag protecting it to some degree too. Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase!

    I can tell you Kevlar can save your life! Priemer’s ability to integrate IIIA protection into a form that can be with you in your everyday life… at school, at the office, and even onboard an airliner, without drawing attention to itself. Its allways there waiting to stop
    The most common leathal treats in use by those that cause others harm. Whether to cover your vitals as you make your retreat, or in front of you as a shield. With this protection only weighing an average of 2 pounds depending on size, it gives you options in a bad situation.
    Options that can save your life. It also acts to stiffen your backpack, and protect your back from objects with sharp corners and protruding items that would injure you in a fall.
    Even opened, you cannot tell this 11x17” panel is in place in my Vertx Gamut 2.0!
