viktos bags and usa made body armor bundles

The Upscale3 Slingbag, sized between a chest fanny pack and typical tactical slingbags, is tailored for minimalist concealed carry and EDC. It fits a full-size pistol with an included universal hook and loop holster, though you can use your preferred holster. Designed for ambidextrous use, its padded sling offers easy pistol access from either side. The main section has elastic webbing and a pocket for extras like magazines and medkits, while a padded compartment at the top is ideal for eyeglasses. To enhance its protective capabilities we combined the Upscale3 with a custom-fit ballistic insert for unparalleled safety and security.

viktos upscale concealed carry sling bag with body armor

Hook And Loop Insert

Designed to fit seamlessly into the Viktos Upscale2 and Upscale3 Sling Bags without losing the hook-and-loop feature for a modular holster. The design mimics the interior of the bag with a full field of velcro on the front, so adding the bulletproof panel won't cause you to lose any functionality. We use the same ballistic material in these panels as the material used in the standard insert and in our soft body armor vests for law enforcement.

        Upscale3 armored bundle

        Hard to beat. All the room you would need for a light day pack. Great truck bag. Only complaint is the water bottle side not being zippered all the way down, but it’s something I can live with. Will definitely be ordering more 12x15 soft armor backpack inserts for multiple other bags for the kids, absolutely top notch. Impressed with the quality, I see these outliving the decade old 5.11 packs that I’m slowing retiring and finding new replacements for.

        Also drink pocket is able to hold a 18oz yeti rambler cup for any wondering minds

        Viktos Upscale Sling Insert but for Eberlestock H31 Bandit

        This fits in the bladder pouch of the H31 Bandit perfectly. Might be snug to use with the bladder but it has not arrived yet. Its just a few inches short of the top of the bag. No complaints, the product is great in my EDC bag, I feel better knowing its there. Customer service was also top tier helping me with my order so I could travel.

        Panel for my sling

        I recently purchased the Viktos XL sling so I purchased the panel and it fits perfectly in the sling.

        As advertised

        Ordered this insert so I could use it across multiple bags. Easy to install, don’t notice the increase in weight. The flexibility allows me to wear it in various environments comfortably.
