Built-in Body armor. Seamlessly integrated and fully concealed The Firebird Armored Backpack is built to stop the bullets used in 95% of gun related homicides at a total weight of under 3lbs all inclusive, in its lightest configuration. Nobody will know your backpack doubles as a lifesaving tool.
The Firebird is something you take with you everywhere. It affords you protection which could save your life. With 7 years in body armor and plate carrier manufacturing designed for heavy duty use, we’ve taken our industry knowledge and applied it towards lightweight and flexible backpack armor development and backpack design. The result is the most reliable and affordable one-piece armored backpack available today, with the AR500 Armor® quality you expect. Each design aspect is engineered with protection, ease of use, and concealability in mind.
The armor is first manufactured 100% in our Phoenix, AZ facility. Cut, assembled, and sealed by our team of craftsmen. We utilize an Anti-Microbial and Water-resistant rip-stop laminate which is both protective and lightweight. This special IIIA armored panel is inserted into The Firebird, completely sealed again in the ideal location for optimal vital coverage within the backpack. You never have to worry about fitting a specific size within your backpack, or your panel shifting out of position. As it leaves our factory, your backpack is immediately ready for use, full featured, with zero encumberments. You might even forget you have body armor with you.
The perfect travel companion. Wear The Firebird front facing, back facing, slung over one shoulder, hang it over your seat, or use the straps and carry handle to deploy as a shield. Also, ideal for flying to use as a travel or carry on backpack.
The Backpack features durable zippers, padded rear backing for comfort, and padded fully adjustable backpack straps. The Hypalon bottom lining is both high traction, abrasion and water resistant. On each zipper, you’ll find the same high traction Hypalon pull tabs.
We recommend wearing the backpack as high up on your back as comfortably possible for adequate vital coverage.
