Streetwise Rear Guard Ballistic Shield Backpack Insert

Now Made in the U.S.A.

Adding our Rear Guard Insert to your child’s backpack adds less weight than a textbook, but it can take a ton of weight off your shoulders when you know your kids are safe at school.

Our upgraded Rear Guard bulletproof soft panel inserts are now made in the USA! They are half the thickness and weigh less than similar-looking panels that are imported from China. This thinner, lighter insert has been tested to NIJ level 3A bulletproof standards making them the perfect choice for everyday personal protection.

What Is Rear Guard?

Although most of us will never be on a traditional battle field, unfortunately our schools, office buildings, concerts, and other public places are all too often turned into war zones that require us to be prepared to take defensive action. Everyone knows to flee at the first sign of an active shooter. The Rear-Guard Backpack Insert from Streetwise Security Products keeps you safe during your retreat. When fleeing is not an option, you can remove your backpack and hold it in front of you as a shield.

Will I Really Be Protected?

The Streetwise Rear Guard Backpack Insert instantly converts your ordinary backpack, laptop case, or handbag into a ballistic shield capable of stopping nearly all hand gun rounds as well as protection from sharp or pointed weapons. But don’t take our word for it; our inserts have been tested by an independent facility to National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Level 3A standards. This is the highest level of protection currently available for lightweight, flexible (soft) body armor.

Why Not Just Buy a Bulletproof Backpack?

Bullet proof backpacks have been on the market for several years. Although they are expensive, they do offer good protection. The problem is that not everybody likes to carry a plain black backpack. Our Rear-Guard bulletproof insert can convert your child’s current backpack into a ballistic shield for about half the cost! It can be used for up to seven years so when you child’s backpack wears out (or their style changes) our insert can be easily removed and transferred to their new backpack.

What Is It Made of, and Is It Practical to Carry?

Unlike the heavy, rigid chunks of metal used in the past, our Rear-Guard insert is so flexible and lightweight that your child will not even know they are carrying it. Made of a high-tech material known as Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), this insert measures 8″ by 10″ and weighs under 12 ounces, and it is flexible enough to conform to whatever it is placed in. Because our insert contains no metal it is airport and TSA friendly to ensure that you and your loved ones will be protected even when traveling.
