Added Protection with out Notice

Nice add in to my bag, fits right in the pocket and doesn't take up additional room. You really never notice that its in there.

Universal Fit

This is a great product that fits perfectly in the Vertx laptop main compartment pouch or the back pocket. It also fits great in my other backpacks that will hold a 15‚ÄĚ laptop. If doesn‚Äôt all noticeable weight to the pack which is important since I do a lot of travel and through airports.

Commuter sling level 3A insert

1st and foremost it was delivered on time. It is a perfect fit slid in matched up every corner no play. Would highly recommend to anyone with this specific bag. I carry this all day no fatigue. I'm going to be ordering the hard plate next to combine both. Thanks again for making a quality product.

TAD Fast Litespeed insert

Well with there not being a exact fit for the TAD Fast Pack Litespeed I went with this size..and it was a perfect fit.
The combo is a great set up for my EDC..I have Premier inserts in 3 other bags and have been impressed with the fit and finish with each panel.

Good stuff!!

I got my IIIA panel rather quicky, and I slipped it in my Vertx tourist sling bag. I definitely plan to order 1 more so that their can be 2 ballistic panels for added protection. Overall I feel much safe when I'm out in public with that ballistic panel in my tourist sling bag.
Good stuff guys, thank you!!!

Note: Ballistic panel is located behind pistol, and 2nd panel will be located behind "STB" kit (stop the bleed).
