For less than the cost of an iPod you can make any bag or pack, from your Thomas the Train to your NorthFace daypack, a Threat Level IIIa anti-ballistic shield. Now there is no reason to leave yourself or your loved ones exposed to the threat of random violence.
Ballistic Protection also saves lives in bomb fragmentation and explosive incidents. There are thousands of cases of shrapnel being stopped by body armor. However, shrapnel and fragments can take so many shapes and forms that it is very difficult to "rate" the levels of protection. Ammunition based rating systems, like the NIJ Threat Level system, seem to be the best way to measure the strength of a material in a projectile impact test. Threat Level 3a is the HIGHEST level of protection available in soft body armor (vests). Higher levels of protection are in the form of "hard" armoring: Ceramic, Composite or Metal Plates in pockets that protect the most vital, center of mass, organs, other than the head - See our Threat Level 3a clipboard inserts or bulletproof backpacks for products you can use to enhance your protection above the neck.
Instructions: Hold pack/bag with shield between yourself and the shooter using the shoulder straps as handles. Use as a shield to provide cover for upper torso and head whenever possible. While taking shelter use pack/bag to protect yourself in the direction of the threat. While running away, hold pack/bag high on your back or in the direction of the threat to protect your head and upper torso (vital organs).
