More than ever in today's world we need to protect ourselves as you never know when or where gun violence will occur, and since we all carry some kind of bag or back pack, having a concealed light weight ballistic insert for it isn't a bad idea. We have two types in a variety of sizes, the first is our all aramid insert comprised of plain woven Kevlar fabric, and the other is the latest generation "Unidirectional Polyethylene Laminate" or (UDPE).
The difference is weight, as both will defeat the following ammunition, which is classified at NIJ Level 3-A:
9mm Submachine gun 124 Gr. FMJ at 1400 - 1500 Ft. Sec.
.357 Sig 125 Gr. FMC at 1470 - 1550 Ft./Sec.
.44 Magnum 240 Gr. JHP at 1400 - 1500 Ft. Sec.
These are the worst pistol rounds, just about everything else fired from a pistol would be considered a lesser threat.
1.25 Lbs/Sq. Ft - weight for an 11 x 15 panel is 1.6 Lbs at 5/16ths of an inch thick. (this includes waterproof cover weight)
.80 Lbs/Sq. Ft. - weight for an 11 x 15 panel is 1 Lbs at 3/16th of an inch thick. (this includes waterproof cover weight)
We also make several different sizes, and since we are the manufacturer if you have a special size, just ask, we can make it!
This is a great holiday gift for anyone.
