Traveling is something that I enjoy. I travel often for both personal and business matters. When I travel anywhere, especially overseas, I make sure that I have my GORUCK Echo ruck (backpack) with me. I keep it TSA & DHS proof so that I can grab it and go at a moments notice. In the Echo, I keep a variety of items that will not get questioned at any airport, but I still consider them everyday carry; Or the best that I can get away with while traveling…
One of the items in my travel bag is a DFNDR ARMOR Backpack Body Armor. It is something that is a bit worrisome to have to think about needing it while traveling. But all that you have to do is turn the news on and you can see why it is valid in today’s world. The DFNDR body armor that I have is specially designed for backpacks. The DFNDR body armor that I have is 9.5 x 12.5 inches & fits perfectly in my pack. It weighs in at just over 1lb. which makes it barely noticeable. I keep it in my laptop compartment alongside my MacBook. Keep in mind that the DFNDR ARMOR logo on the plate has to face away from your body. The spec sheet with the plate’s information faces your body.
Wherever or however you chose to carry your DFNDR ARMOR body armor, be sure that you practice and practice often. You wont have the option to think to long if an active shooter situation were to arise. Be sure to practice how you will deploy your pack if you were in an everyday situation, wearing your backpack & gunfire occurs or is about to occur…
