    Do the research and decide. Level IIIA is rated for handgun calibers. I figure having it is more effective than not having it. I hope to never find out.

        For those looking to add a little protection for their kids, this is a great backpack panel

          Thanks. This may be a more viable option than an 8lb steel panel.

            The mini-gulags that grade schools are today, if there were to be a real active shooter in or near the school I very much doubt your kid would be allowed to take their backpack with them into the hallway or under their desk or where the brilliant Board Of Ed minds say the safest place to cower is.

            If your kid makes a stink "Daddy said if this happens to hold my backpack in front of me like this!" that invites inspection of the bag and when the pad is found, guess who's getting a PD and/or CPS visit?

            (NOT that I'm saying it isn't a good idea however)
            I am not armed out of fear of who's in front of me.
            I am armed out of love of those behind me.

            Anyone who says money doesn't matter to them is either a FOOL or a LIAR or BOTH!

              True. But this is not according to BOE, it is Feds guideline. Nothing is taken. Because if one kid sees "Timmy" getting his back, he or she will want to take his/hers bag, toy, favorite plant, hampster...

              Plus PD responders will love nothing more then seeing bunch of kids are running toward them with backpacks...

                And like said before soft armor won't stop a rifle round. Plate armor is too heavy for most kids.

                  For older kids, it looks great. For younger kids, it won't fit in their backpacks, it would make them too stiff for them to use it easily, and it could be dangerous if they were to fall. Also, elementary teachers go in their students' backpacks a lot, and they are stored in cubbies most of the time.

                  To be clear, I think all kids should have something like this, but given our society, I'm not sure this is the best for little kids.
