NASHVILLE, TN / ACCESSWIRE / August 7, 2018 / American Rebel, Inc. (OTCQB: AREB) is pleased to announce that its Freedom Backpack line, available in four unique designs, offer an optional add onpurchase of a Ballistic Panel Insert. The panel is soft armor and fits into a custom sleeve in the Freedom Large Concealed Carry Backpack.

The protection level of the panel is NIJ IIIA, which is good for everything up to and including .44 Magnum. NIJ (National Institute of Justice) requires testing at 25 feet. In addition, we also tested at 5 feet, which is a greater challenge to the panel and the distance where most robberies happen.

We tested the following handguns with zero failures:

  1. .38 Special
  2. 9mm
  3. .40
  4. .45
  5. .357 SIG
  6. .44 Mag

This testing occurs continually as we receive additional shipments. We test a random sample of shipments to ensure quality.

George Gulla, Dean of Students and Head of School Security at Florida Christian School told CNN the bulletproof panels would add “another level of protection” to students of the pre-K through grade 12 school “in the event of an active shooter.”

“American Rebel continues to be the premier personal protection and personal carry brand of choice for many. We want to highlight that our backpacks can be used for ballistic protection as well with the addition of the ballistic panel. We are very excited about our products and this product particularly brings a level of security we all deserve as Americans,” stated Andy Ross, CEO of American Rebel.

It has always been the goal of American Rebel to design products not only to make carrying your firearm as safe as possible without any limitation to quick access or functionality of the firearm, but also for pure personal protection applications. American Rebel strongly supports the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms.

In addition to its currently available Freedom backpacks that can accommodate its ballistic panel insert, American Rebel will soon release the Student’s PROtection Pack series. The PRO Pack will be a great backpack for students to carry their books and supplies with them to school and incorporate ballistic panel protection. The PRO Pack will have a variety of sizes and colors and ballistic panel options. American Rebel will have the PRO Pack available for purchase by Christmas 2018.
