Protection and Peace of Mind (that’s practically invisible)

Today’s kids already have too much to deal with—and no kid should ever have to fear for their life when they take a trip to school, the mall or a supermarket.

But, it’s a harsh reality that bulletproof backpacks are becoming increasingly common on the school bus. While these ballistic backpacks are a little bit heavier (and often a lot more expensive) than the bookbags of the last generation, their ability to act as a bulletproof shield makes them practically indispensable.

Common armored backpacks have their shortcomings though. Namely, that they’re heavy, and the armor panel is often sewn into the backpack and sized to fit that specific pack. That makes them less flexible if you want to upgrade the pack or transfer the plate to another carrier. Bulletproof backpacks are also generally quite expensive.

Our PakProtect ballistic shield solves those problems… 

First, it utilizes a special UHMWP construction that combines hard-armor protection with ultra-lightweight construction. As an insert, it can easily be used in almost any backpack, suitcase or briefcase it fits into. It could even potentially fit into an oversized purse. And finally, it’s affordable…at about half the price of a standard bulletproof backpack.

Warranted for 10 years and designed to last even longer, our PakProtect Ballistic shield can follow a student through elementary and high school all the way to college, replacing a variety of bulletproof backpacks a student might own throughout his or her life.

That means you can provide active, lightweight protection to the whole family at an affordable price. When seconds matter, this kind of protection could be a lifesaver.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), there are three options to follow during an active shooter situation: run, hide or defend. PakProtect plays an important role in complementing all of these actions.


-Getting away from the shooter or shooters is the top priority.

-Have an escape route and plan in mind.

-Leave your things behind and run away.

-Keep your head down and your hands visible.

-If safe to do so, warn others nearby.

-Call 911 when you are safe.

-Describe each shooter, their locations and weapons.


-If you can’t get away safely, find a place to hide out of the shooter’s view.

-Lock and block doors, close blinds, turn off lights and block entry to your hiding place.

-Stay very quiet. Silence electronic devices and make sure they won’t vibrate.

-Create barriers with desks and/or tables.

-Place your backpack with PakProtect in front of your body, crouching to reduce exposure to the potential threat.

-Don’t hide in groups—spread out along walls or hide separately to make it more difficult for the shooter.

-Try to communicate with police silently—for example through text messages or by putting a sign in an exterior window.

-Stay in place until law enforcement gives you the all-clear.


-Your last resort when you are in immediate danger is to defend yourself.

-Commit to your actions and act aggressively to stop the shooter.

-Hold your backpack with PakProtect in front of your body, rushing the shooter with your head down.

-Ambushing the shooter with makeshift weapons such as chairs, fire extinguishers and books can distract and disarm the shooter.

-Act with verbal and physical aggression—shout, scream and throw items at the shooter.
