The Leatherback Gear backpack is a well designed, highly functional sophisticated everyday backpack. The hidden armor panels and separation zipper allows the wearer to transform the backpack in seconds into a full torso ballistic protection device. The ballistic rating of our armor allows the wearer to stop up to a .44 magnum round. However, the user can customize their level of ballistic stopping power by adding contents to their backpacks: e.g., laptop, tablets, textbooks/books, etc.

We want you to survive the next

The Leatherback Gear backpack can be worn like a bulletproof vest protecting your front and back in the event of an emergency.

"My wife and I have more piece of mind that if there’s an active shooter in our son’s school that he has a better chance of making it out alive."
