NEWS – It’s an unfortunate fact that the terms active shooter and mass shooting are commonplace today. Parents shouldn’t have to worry about the safety of their children when they send them off to school each day, but worry is just part of the world we live in now.
Some schools and businesses have active shooter scenario drills so that people will know what to do if such a terrible situation occurs. But are there other ways to provide some extra protection and peace of mind for your kids? SentryShield, the maker of tactical protection gear, thinks so with their Bulletproof Backpack Insert.
The Bulletproof Backpack Insert is a NIJ Level IIIA-compliant bulletproof insert that is eight times stronger than steel without being made of any metal. It’s constructed of up of 24 layers of ultra-high molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) to make it capable of stopping a variety of ammunition without setting off a metal detector at the airport, schools, etc.
The backpack (16.25 by 11.75 inches) and handbag (14 by 10 inches) versions of the SentryShield inserts are both only 10 millimeters thick, and weigh only 1.46 and 1.74 pounds respectively. They can be easily inserted into your bag and left there to provide extra protection in the event of an active shooter situation.
The SentryShield is available now at SentryShieldUSA.com for an introductory price of $89.99. And for a limited time, a second SentryShield is available for 50% off when purchasing one at full price and entering code Protect50 at checkout.
