New Jersey Stores Selling Bullet-resistant Backpacks
Back-to-school shopping has begun and a backpack is on most parents' list this year. However, this year, a different type of backpack has been made available for students.
Office Depot and Office Max are now selling Guard Dog Security Bullet-resistant ProShield Scout Youth Backpacks, both online and in stores. The backpacks come in black, teal, and pink and sell for around $120 through the retailers.
According to Fox 5, "A label on the bag claims that it can stop a 9mm or a .44 Magnum round, but will not stop a round from a high-velocity rifle."
The item description on OfficeDepot.com states, "Carry your books, laptop and other essentials to class while enjoying peace of mind, too. The backpack is built to deliver Level IIIA protection thanks to its soft tactical armor, and the padded back and shoulder straps offer comfortable carrying."
