FAQs

Are your products made in the USA?- Currently, all of our ballistics and many of our products are manufactured in the USA. We are committed to domestically sourcing as many of our materials as possible, and are working toward bringing production of more of our best-selling items to America. 

Are your products tested for reliability?- Yes. We proudly display the tests results we have from H.P. White’s Laboratory of Maryland, the premier testing facility for NIJ standards. Please click here to view our testing performance certification. 

Why do you use the term “bulletproof”?- “Bulletproof” is a common term that is well-known and researched by the civilian market. One of our primary goals is to educate our customers about the limitations of NIJ standards and ballistic materials. Our products are NIJ Threat Level 3A. Although the professional community avoids the use of “bulletproof”, the definition fits our products to the NIJ Threat Level 3A standards. 

How do I use my bulletproof backpack, bag, or briefcase?- Hold the bag between yourself and the threat using the straps as handles. Use it as a shield to provide cover for your upper torso (vital organs). While taking shelter, use the bag to protect yourself by continuing to hold it in the direction of the threat. If running away, hold bag high on your back or in the direction of the threat to protect your head and upper torso (vital organs).

What are the measurement specifications of your products?- The panels used in BulletBlocker backpacks, bags, briefcases, or inserts weigh approximately 20 ounces.  

Can I bring my bulletproof item on an airplane?- Yes. The US transportation Security Administration does not prohibit any Bullet Blocker product or body armor. 

How do I clean my bulletproof product?- Most panels are removable except for items with sewn in panels (Guardian backpack, Everyday backpack, Pistol Case, Notebooks, and the Laptop Case). Remove the bulletproof panels and clean it with a damp cloth. All clothing can be cleaned per the instructional tag once the panels are removed.

Are your products stab resistant?- All bulletproof panels are inherently stab resistant, but they are not tested to meet any resistance standards so cannot be listed as such.

Do your products protect against rifle rounds?- Rifle rounds require Level III or greater. Doubling up two (2) Level IIIA will not stop a rifle projectile!

Can I test shoot my product?- No. If you have any questions or concerns about your product, please contact us immediately.

How flexible are the bullet proof panels?- They are roughly as flexible as a rubber mouse pad.

How long will it take for my order to ship?- Please allow 14-21 business days. A majority of our products are custom-made at the time you place your order and must pass rigorous quality assurance analyses conducted by professional seamstresses before they leave our facility. Anti-ballistic materials (whether purchased from us or any other company) have an industry standard expiration of 5 years, and we strive to preserve our product’s longevity by following a ‘made to order’ production approach. We pride ourselves in delivering the highest quality products to our customers, and appreciate your understanding.

Do you offer expedited or overnight shipping?- Due to the unique nature of the products we sell, we generally do not offer expedited or overnight shipping.

 

Additional Information

What are the different levels of bulletproof protection?- There are pistol threats and rifle threats. Soft bullet resistant material stops pistol rounds and fragmentation but only a rigid rifle plate stops a rifle round. Level IIA, Level II and Level IIIA will stop the majority of pistol round plus 12 gauge and OO buckshot but no material is ever 100% ‘bulletproof’. The tradeoff between protection, wear-ability and conceal-ability determines the level of protection and is a personal choice. The biggest difference between Levels is the amount of blunt trauma impact protection.

  • Level IIA generally ~4 mm thick- Best if thinness, comfort and conceal-ability are the most important factors. May be worn for extended periods and allows for greater mobility. However, many prefer the extra blunt trauma protection from Level II or Level IIIA.
  • Level II generally ~5 mm thick- Often worn by police officers and a balanced choice between blunt trauma protection, cost and thickness/conceal-ability/comfort. Recommend if concealment under light clothing is a priority.
  • Level IIIA generally ~8 - 9 mm thick- Thicker, stiffer, heavier and more expensive but will stop more of the uncommon pistol threats. Tested for 9mm sub-machinegun and .44 magnum; plus it offers more blunt trauma impact protection.

What is the legality of purchasing/owning a bulletproof product?- Convicted felons may not be in possession of any body armor. Connecticut residents require a face-to-face transaction when buying (unless the buyer is a police officer, a police department, or member of the military). If you are a civilian, we will ship your product to a BulletBlocker dealer in Connecticut where you can pick it up.
