Introducing Guardian1 and G1 RifleCertified Backpacks
Guardian1 was founded by a dad of two young children. At the time of the Sandy Hook tragedy, his daughter and son were in elementary school. His son is non-verbal autistic and this tragedy hit particularly close to his heart.
Deeply saddened by the continued loss of innocent life in schools, astonished by shooters with easy access to multiple assault rifles, and frustrated by the inaction of politicians to curb our nation’s gun violence crisis, he struggled to make sense of how this was somehow becoming the new normal.
Kids, students and business people in offices do not stand a chance against these types of automatic weapons. Until our nation passes stricter gun laws, he felt we needed a shield. All of us.
He decided to do something about it.
He researched bulletproof body armor, bulletproof bags and bulletproof briefcase inserts. He learned that everything currently available to consumers is only rated by the National Institute for Justice IIIA (NIJ IIIA), which is for handguns. That is not enough. He learned more than he wanted to know about ballistics and the amazing force and velocity at which these weapons impact a target. The best shield against a rifle is rated NIJ III, which is for rifles and automatic weapons.
He researched all kinds of multi-functional, tech-ready bag styles and designs.
Today, Guardian1 introduces G1 backpacks for kids, students, business and travelers. They’re all designed to meet the NIJ III standard for ballistic resistance tested to stop 7.62mm Full Metal Jacket, lead-core rifle ammunition. We hope this backpack becomes your favorite bag and we hope you never have to use it as a shield.
