TuffyPacks, LLC, manufactures global defensive solutions for the ever-increasing problem of active shooter incidents. We manufacture a line of custom inserts that provide a level of personal protection from ballistic threats similar to what law enforcement officers wear daily as bulletproof vests. The TuffyPack Ballistic Shields are built to meet Level IIIA threat requirements. Our inserts have been tested by an independent ballistic lab and the report is available on our website.
When inserted into backpacks, briefcases or computer bags, our ballistic shields will provide the highest level of protection currently available as lightweight, concealable body armor. A backpack with ballistic protection weighs only 19 to 27 ounces more than a nonprotected pack (based on the pack size). Additionally, the ballistic shields are removable when the user desires to use the pack in a low or nonthreat environment. Our panels are constructed using multiple layers of ballistic PE material that is a strong, synthetic PE fiber similar to Kevlar. It is used in the global production of body armor, helmets and ballistic vests, just to name a few. You can confidently depend on our panels for protection against all kinds of handgun bullets and fragments, as well as against stabbing with sharp and pointed objects. We have chosen PE as our component fabric due to its acceptance as a go-to solution for the ballistic needs of law enforcement and military on a global level. Our panels are die-cut multiple-layer pieces and sealed in a moisture-resistant black nylon outer cover that inhibits UV light and moisture that can reduce the useful life of the material. We write the build date and stamp each panel with a five-year useful life. For more information, visit tuffypacks.com
