It's a functional Backpack, with 28 liters of smart storage…but it's also a covert personal defense tool, with concealed pockets for soft armor and a full-size pistol. It's designed to accommodate a 16.5" x 10.5" Armor Express B.A.G ballistic plate (sold separately) in a concealed inner pocket, which instantly transforms this ordinary backpack into a potential life-saving shield. Plus, it holds your full-size pistol at the ready, should you need it for defense. Sized right to be used as a daily pack, yet slick enough to offer rapid back-up weapon retrieval, the Covert Cover has plenty of functionality in a non-threatening package. Only YOU know that you've got proven protection on-hand.
Open up the spacious main compartment, and you'll see a concealed zipper pocket designed to hold the 16.5"x10.5" B.A.G. Insert firmly in place. You'll also see a hook-and-loop adjustable holster attachment that holds a full-size gun at the ready. Two concealed zip side pockets allow access to your pistol when necessary. On the back of the Pack, a built-in shield sleeve allows you to wear the Backpack on your forearm, providing ballistic shielding on the move. Open up the big front pocket, and you've got plenty of MOLLE attachment points for extra mags, IFAK, and medical supplies. And it's all-so comfortable to carry thanks to the padded airmesh shoulder straps.
Following a mugging during a pizza delivery, Richard Davis — inventor of soft armor and co-founder of Armor Express® — went to law enforcement supply stores to look for a way to protect himself. He was shocked to learn that nobody made soft, concealable body armor. Up to that point, Law Enforcement Officers wore flak jackets, steel plate — or nothing at all. Richard saw an opportunity, and set out to work on his own soft armor. In 1971, after years of development, Richard had a product he knew would save lives. To sell it, he did the unthinkable: he put on the armor he made, and shot himself point-blank with a .44 Magnum revolver (don't try this at home). It worked, and Law Enforcement Officers bought his product. The materials and technology have come a long way since the early 70s, but current Armor Express CEO Matt Davis sells it the same way his father did. By now, both men have shot themselves over 200 times. Because they trust their product. And they want LEOs, firefighters, service providers, EMS techs, and anyone who needs added protection in dangerous situations to trust their products too.
