There are a few options for bulletproof backpacks for kids at the moment. However, this is a growing idea nowadays and we expect manufacturers to put these on the markets soon. So, we will update if there are more bulletproof backpacks for sale.
For now, the #makeourschoolssafe movement by makeourschoolssafe.org has influenced some brands. As a result of this, The Guard Dog ProShield Scout Backpack and similar options come with LEVEL IIIA protection. Of course, the protection of kids mustn’t be left to bulletproof gears. In other words, there are lots of areas to strengthen before the bullet reaches the young ones. Still, to provide better safety and protection, and to reduce the vulnerability can be good ideas. Mostly, schools are not directly dangerous areas. Still, whenever combat situations occur, there’s a chance for civilians to be shot, including children. In such cases, just running away might not be enough. Having some covers around or carrying at least a bulletproof backpack might make a great difference between the probable consequences. If the dangerous streets, unsafe profiles of schools, and the failing education systems tempt you, you can also read our post about homeschooling.
Let’s continue with the available bulletproof backpacks for kids. Then, we will update the topic when there will be more options. You will be able to see any updates under this topic.
