Not inconvenient

There are a number of other body armor brands out there you could purchase (most at a bit of a cheaper cost). However, I mainly went with this brand because of the tests performed on YouTube, which demonstrate its reliability and ability to withstand multiple bullet rounds.

Statistics do show that you have a very slim chance of getting caught up in a school shooting. Still, the peace of mind is big. With this brand I know it is dependable. And, the shield is so light weight that it barely makes a difference in my backpack. It's certainly not inconvenient to carry.

On another note, I probably should have ordered a size larger (I got 10 x 15), but the size still shields my essential organs (and that's what's important).

Fits Eastsport

Fits Eastsport backpack from Walmart, in the laptop sleeve. We did blackout the logo with a sharpie, wife thought it was better ā€œblacked out ā€ . (11x16.5 backpack insert)

Perfect Fit

We purchased the Level IIIA 11x16.5 for our son. It fits perfectly in an Under Armour Hustle 5.0 backpack. I hope we never have to find out how well it works, but I am thankful to have the extra protection.

Fits perfectly in all my bags

I got 2, one for my backpack and one for my wifeā€™s. Itā€™s very slim and can fit in almost all bags given the dimensions.

For a discreet PDW

I placed this level 3A in a Thule 23 liter subterra backpack (where the laptop goes) and the fit is near perfect. Width is perfect but I wish it was a bit taller. The product seems well built and quality although I hope to never have to test it. If youā€™re a firearm enthusiast body armor of any type should be on your radar. It may help you survive a deadly encounter. I plan to buy the executive vest soon.
