Bulletproof, Ballistic Backpacks for Kids

I really wish it did not have to come to this, ballistic backpacks for children. The cutting-edge tech includes RynoHide carbon nanotube armor:

Our ballistic backpack provides built-in ballistic protection in a backpack that weighs just ounces more than a non-armored backpack. RynoHide carbon nanotube armor is lined in the back panel of the backpack. Sewn into the rear of the pack, you can always be confident that the armor hasn’t been accidentally left at home and that you or your child are protected in case of the unthinkable.

The backpack can be quickly brought to the front as a shield or can serve as center of mass protection while fleeing the scene of the shooting.

Available in boys, girls, or teen/adult models and Level II (.357 Magnum, .45, .40, 9 mm) or Level IIIA (.44 Magnum, .357 SIG and below) protection.

Designer apparel with RynoHide material is also available, as are Centurion Tactical Vests for children (bulletproof vests.)

  1. Those back packs are fine, but just to manage expectations: The .223 Bushmaster Rifle the shooter used at Sandy Hook would probably penetrate the Level IIA back pack, and depending on a number of things, might penetrate the Level IIIA backpack too. Of course, if they were also filled with text books – that would help a little too! I am glad companies are thinking about this, but it sad that there is a need.

    1. It is sad that there is a need. Thanks for your SME-like analysis of whether the product would stop the bullets used. Books would help, I guess. I wish all teachers (with training) who were safety-conscious would consider taking a gun class. Just to familiarize themselves with responsible use. Some may even push for armed teachers in the classroom.

      I agree, even if it was a low velocity round, the shock and pressure wave would ensure fatalities at that age group. Such items place people into a false sense of security.

      The answer is for full access/egress control as well as adult security, which has to be placed in depth (layers) around each and every school.


      1. Ex Bootneck, I have to agree with you regarding the impact to such small bodies, no doubt. Also – I am all for “layers” as you say, around the school – all the funding that is about to be spent to fight this issue (on both sides) could provide for these kind of resources. It seems like this push for gun control is less about actually protecting the children, and more about siezing the political advantage this moment in time provides to gain a “win” for a long-term liberal agenda item.

  2. In high stress situations life and death, the LE officer on a good day might have a 20% success of acquiring the target. What do you think the chances would be for an on the premises rent a cop or a teacher who was ambushed? Everyone needs a reality check and we need as a society to screen gun buyers and limit the creation of multiple round magazines.
