The MTS Multi-Threat Shield bag looks like your average, everyday black laptop bag, yet it has a hidden superpower. It can withstand bullets.
Built into the MTS is a lightweight and discreet ballistic shield, like something out of Mission Impossible. Just flick your wrist, and the bag deploys a three-foot long blanket of protection to defeat multiple impacts from most handgun, shotgun, and pistol caliber submachine gun threats. For heavier artillery, such as high-powered rifles, a Level III insert can also be purchased.
The MTS bag not only protects against gunfire but, according to the manufacturer, Force Training Institute, it offers â€śprotection from attacks with blunt objects and edged weapons, as well as punches and kicks.â€ť
The bag is designed for daily use and weighs eight pounds. It has a ballistics coverage area of 639 square inches, and it is purported to be strong enough to stop a .44 Magnum traveling 1412 feet per second. A feature of the bag it an expandable utility pouch. It is used to carry equipment, such as a laptop, tablet, a handgun, or Taser.
The MTS bag is being marketed for home/family defense, law enforcement, fire/EMS workers, executive protection, workplace safety, corporate/private security, educators, hospital staff, and more.
The manufacturer â€ścertifies that this model of ballistic armor has been tested by NIJ approved lab National Testing Systems and has been found to perform at NIJ Level IIIA performanceâ€“#NIJ 0108.01.â€ť
The company does caution that the MTSâ€™ material does not offer protection from rifle fire, armor piercing bullets, or â€śspecial purpose projectilesâ€ť without the aforementioned Level III insert.
This laptop bag tailor-made for the battlefield or the zombie apocalypse will set you back $899. Force Training Institute has the MTS available on its website. The company specializes in crisis management, as well as personal and organizational safety and security.
