An Israeli company with ties to the country’s military and security services has released a Kevlar-covered backpack to protect students from surprise shooters, according to information released Monday by the company, called ArmorMe.
The Kevlar-plated backpack will hit shelves in February and promises to help protect students from an alarming uptick in school-centered violence, as well as other terror-oriented attacks.
“We never know when violent attacks may occur,” security specialist and Israeli Defense Forces Colonel Dr. Gabi Siboni said in a news release announcing the new protective wear. “We designed this bag for every student and have given them one or two panels of Kevlar to provide safety.”
