We all know about everyday gun related tragedies.  There are no survival guarantees when it comes to being shot at. Like wearing a seat belt in a car wreck, its a major survival advantage versus not having anything at all for “cover -protection”.  While we can not control the environment we live in, We can actively protect ourselves and our loved ones. Although it make take getting used to, being proactive vs. passive against unexpected gun violence is up to you. A little bit of protection can go a long way, it might even save your life. Need we say more . . . 
We thank you for your consideration,

Gunfire is virtually always unexpected - School, University, the Shopping Mall, Park, the street, a parking lot, coming back from an evening event etc. This backpack could be a real life saver, and possibly avert many gunpoint initaited crimes (i.e. shooting, attempted kidnapping) - Its a case of dramatically increasing your odds of survival versus the alternative (no ballistic defense). 

The bullet resistant composite  BackPack Shield TM armor panel insert is manufactured with the most advanced lightest aerospace ballistic composite material available. This high performance ballistic panel was specifically designed originally for use by the United States Armed Forces ( US Army, Special Forces etc.). By using the latest state of the art technologies available today, BPS can supply a variety ballistic panels in a variety of sizes and threat protection levels.  Our ballistic BACKPACKSHIELD panels provide you with better protection than any other sewn-in backpack liner/curtain or ballistic steel insert in the market. If you have any questions, please e-mail sales@backpackshield.com .

33 Gunshot deaths in 1 day at Virginia Tech (2007). 

- According to the CDC there are more than 30,000 gun related homicides (deaths) per year in the USA

Source: The US House Committee on Education and Labor

 The US House Committee on Education and Labor held a full committee hearing on "Best Practices to Make College Campuses Safe." The hearing was conviened by Chairman George Miller, who said, "In the wake of the horrific and senseless violence at Virginia Tech, we must do everything we can to ensure that our nation's college campuses are safe learning environments for students, faculty, and staff members. Today's hearing provided us with a critical opportunity to learn about how the Congress can help colleges and universities to prevent and recover from tragedies and emergencies. Nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of our children, our students, and our loved ones."
Virginia's Representative Robert C. "Bobby" Scott said, "In light of the recent incidents at Virginia colleges and universities, we need to explore every possible avenue toward determining what can be done to prevent these events in the future.
It was tragic to have 33 deaths in one day at Virginia Tech, but according to the CDC, every year more than 30,000 persons die by firearms through suicide or homicide. This is the equivalent of the Virginia Tech death toll occurring 2 to 3 times every day. This is not to minimize the tragedy of school shootings; we want the number to be zero. But if we are going to prevent these events, we have to start with placing them in a broader context."

Its not just for protecting your back, when placed in front of you use it as an active Bullet Resistant Shield - Get your head and  heart behind the BACKPACKSHIELD and high velocity 9 mm full metal jacket bullets and/or 44 Magnum rounds will not get  through the shield (either they bounce off or they will stick into the first few outer shield layers). Its 17" high and 12" wide - you  can position a lot of your vital body  (head and heart) behind it the only thing exposed may be your lower leg area. Its a  major survival advantage versus not having any protection at all and being shot with a couple of 9 mm/44 Magnum rounds.
The BACKPACKSHIELD can be a life saver and is "Piece of Mind".
