SentryShield releases a new bulletproof backpack insert available in two sizes, able to accommodate backpacks or handbags.

The SentryShield insert is designed to travel easily, concealing within the confines of a backpack, laptop bag or other personal bags. Using 24 layers of ultra-high molecular-weight polyethylene that is NJ Level IIIA compliant, the insert is said to be eight times stronger than steel; however, it does not contain any metal and therefore can pass through metal detectors with ease.

“We live in difficult times,” Jason Wakefield, chief marketing officer for SentryShield, said in a news release. “But ignoring the reality of those times won’t make us any safer. We believe that any measure of protection you can provide yourself or loved ones is a worthy investment, especially one that is always with you as opposed to an afterthought.”

The insert comes in two sizes that can fit into a range of bag styles for protection regardless of what the user carries. (Photo: SentryShield)

The backpack insert measures 16.25-inches by 11.75-inches and weighs 1.46-pounds while the handbag insert offers measurements of 14-inches by 10-inches with a weight of 1.74-pounds. The inserts are capable of stopping 9mm, .44 Magnum, .357 Sig and 12-gauge slugs.

“Nothing can offer a guarantee in a tragic situation like one involving an active shooter, but even something as small as SentryShield has the potential to make a very big difference,” commented Wakefield.

The SentryShield Backpack Insert retails for $120.
