Streetwise 10x13 Rear Guard Ballistic Shield Insert

What is Rear-Guard?

According to Webster’s Dictionary, Rear Guard refers to "the soldiers that are stationed at the rear of a body to protect it from attack, especially during retreat."

Although most of us will never be on a traditional battlefield, unfortunately our schools, office buildings, concerts, and other public places are all too often turned into war zones that require us to be prepared to take defensive action. The Rear-Guard Insert from Streetwise Security Products keeps you safe.

 Will I really be protected?

The Streetwise Rear Guard Insert instantly converts your tactical vest, ordinary backpack, laptop case, or handbag into a ballistic shield capable of stopping nearly all handgun rounds (even 9mm and .44 Magnum!) as well as protection from sharp or pointed weapons. But don’t take our word for it; our inserts have been tested by an independent facility to National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Level 3A standards (NIJ lllA). This is the highest level of protection currently available for lightweight, flexible (soft) body armor.


What is it made of and is it practical to carry?

Unlike the heavy, rigid chunks of metal used in the past, our Rear-Guard insert is so flexible and lightweight they will not even know they are carrying it. Made of a high-tech material know as Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), it measures 10" by 13" and weighs only 1 lb., 2.9 oz. and is flexible enough to conform to whatever it is placed in. Because our insert contains no metal it is airport and TSA friendly to ensure that you and your loved ones will be protected even when traveling.
