At $399.99 it is a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. I have always been a "buy right once, cry once" type of person. I have spent $150 and a bit more on backpacks before. BTW, the TACR10 discount listed in the below video still works for 10% off.

I hadn't seen that one before, just the backpacks with a single panel. The split apart, wear it as a vest with front/back protection is awesome.
I didn't understand your "whole backpack will stop .223" comment at first as this is just soft armor.
For those who haven't watched the videos yet, if worn as just a backpack and the bullet has to go through both plates, they stopped 5.56 and 7.62x39. Of course not rated for that, but good to know and a good option to just keep it in backpack config if you are running away from the threat only.

I thought of Gecko45 as soon as I read the thread title.
