    BEST EDC backpack EVER!

    I love my F5 switchblade backpack! Even added the Premier Body Armor plate, which is specifically designed for this bag. Very happy with this purchase!

    Awesome addition to a great product!

    Adding this lightweight and thin (!) panel to the F-5 makes it a bit of a better pack due to it stiffening it up a bit. The panel fits perfectly and also fits in my other day packs. The only downside to the one I received (since I'm not Bougie it's ok and I haven't complained to PBA) is it is not co-branded as advertised but only says Premier Body Armor on it. Anyway, it's amazing a panel so thin and light can stop these heavy handgun rounds. Talk about a modern shield! Very cool, well done Premier Body Armor....... Get one or be done!

    Perfect fit, light weight and high quality. After I received the first I bought a’s that good.

    Perfect fit

    Very happy with this purchase. Slim and light weight. Fits in with no problem.

    Amazing surprise

    I read the reviews and made the purchase for a switchblade pack I’ve had.. to my surprise it actually made the pack better. It is absolutely perfect. I was also surprised about the guarantee if you unfortunately get shot. I will be buying another for a Christmas gift.
