Tuffy Packs manufactures a line of inserts that provide a level of personal protection from ballistic threats similar to what law enforcement officers wear daily as bullet proof vests. The Tuffy Pack Ballistic Shields® are built to meet Level IIIA threat requirements. They have been tested by an independent ballistic lab and exceed the requirements set by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standards.
Tuffy Packs ballistic shields, when inserted into backpacks, briefcases or computer bags will provide the highest level of protection currently available as lightweight concealable body armor. Backpacks with ballistic protection weigh only 16 – 24 ounces more than a non-protected pack (based on the pack size). Additionally, the ballistic shields are removable when the user desires to use the pack in a low or non-threat environment.
