      Premier Body Armor IIIA Vertx Backpack Panel

      This is my 2nd Panel for my Vertex backpacks. The fit and craftsman ship is excellent, I have had other brands of body armor. Until I found Premier, it is the best and I have tested it personally (not by choice). That's why I'm able to leave this review.

      Det. thank you for your purchase of our Level IIIA Vertx Backpack Panels and this great review. Stay safe! - PBA Team

      A feeling of security

      I bought the backpack and panel for a trip to the Middle East. Where I was going was considered safe, but I always believe its best to have a plan A, a plan B, and one to back them both up, so i bought the panel and pack. The combined weight of the pack and panel was acceptable to me and the sense of security I had from having them was priceless. I highly recommend this well thought out and quality combination.

      MD, creating a reasonable feeling of confidence and peace of mind for our customers is our goal, so thank you for your honest review of our Level IIIA Vertx Backpack Panel. We hope our customers can go about their day worrying just a bit less about their personal security. Thanks again and stay safe - PBA Team
