Bulletproof gear is an added component for your self-defense and adds a layer of safety you can count on. The most common self-defense weapons like pepper sprays, knives, batons, and stun guns are good to own, and having bulletproof gear is the smart choice to include with your personal self-defense weapons of choice.
Not all solutions require you to come close to an attacker or even to cause harm which is why The Home Security Superstore offers such a wide selection of non-lethal weapons and protective gear for you to choose from. What makes you feel safest is always the right solution for you.
Bulletproof Gear offers you various levels of protection. With active shooter numbers on the rise, it's better to be prepared than to be caught out. Making sure a loved one is safe is critical, the backpacks and inserts are made for that. They fit most backpacks and their light weight makes them feel natural allowing you or a loved one ease of movement in a crisis situation. Simply slip them into a backpack, laptop bag, or handbag or slip on one of our bulletproof backpacks and you'll be given an advantage and the ability to ensure your safety.
With various levels of stopping power, these inserts and backpacks can be used as a shelter for yourself or loved ones in an active shooter situation, inserts come in various sizes ranging from 10" to 19" in height and 8" to 10" in width.
Bulletproof Gear is broken up into a few different categories by ballistic protection level. Measured by the NIJ, these categories are differentiated by their ability to stop higher caliber firearms.
The Ballistic Protection Levels are as follows:
Level 1: (High) Protects from 9 mm, .38 cal, .380 cal or .22 cal bullets. This is a good entry level for if you're concerned about safety and want a baseline of protection, however level 1 will not stop higher caliber rounds so if those are a concern for you this might not be what you need.
Level 2A: (Higher) Protects from 9 mm, .38 cal, .380 cal or .22 cal bullets but offers up a little extra protection against .40 S&W rounds. Still, a low-level protection but is passable for whatever needs you have if you're not very concerned.
Level 2: (Higher) Protects from 9 mm, .38 cal, .380 cal or .22 cal bullets, .40 S&W and with the additional power to stop a .357 magnum round. This is where things start to go from casual protection to serious stopping power.
Level 3A: (Highest) Protects from 9 mm, .38 cal, .380 cal or .22 cal bullets, .40 S&W, .357 magnum, and the high powered .44 magnum used famously in the movie Dirty Harry. High-level protection from most handguns.
Level 3: (Highest) Protects from 9 mm, .38 cal, .380 cal or .22 cal bullets, .40 S&W, .357 magnum, .44 magnum, .223 hollow point, 7.62 NATO and lastly 5.56 JHP. This is real protection, 5.56 and .223 are the most common rounds for the AR platform rifles with the 7.62 NATO being the most common round for the AK-47.
