    Default Overkill?

    Folks I was wondering if you think buying an armor plate for a back pack is a waste of time and money? I have been contemplating buying one. Thanks

    I guess; “why?” is my question. Do you have a plate on your front already? Are you expecting weapons fire from your six? Give us some insight into your thought process.

    If you are already wearing body armor front and back, and maybe on the sides, then it would be overkill. If you are not wearing any then I would have to wonder why you don't expect any fire from your front. If you are thinking about it to have a ready made shield on hand for an active shooter scenario (using your armored backpack as a shield) then it might be worth the weight penalty, especially if it can serve as a frame sheet for your backpack.
