Most laptop bags are not much more than a pocket with a strap attached for people to tote more gear around than they can carry in their hands. Not any more. The new MTS – Multi Threat Shield (MTS) bag looks like an average black laptop bag, but not only can it carry gear it can also save lives. Built into the MTS is a lightweight and discreet ballistic shield. Whether the threat is an intruder or an active shooter, a quick flick of the wrist swiftly deploys a 3-foot long blanket of protection to defeat multiple impacts from most handgun, shotgun and pistol caliber submachine gun threats.
In the event of a physical attack, families, schools, law enforcement, first responders, hospitals, businesses and private security personnel can use the MTS™ to protect one or more people. The MTS’ primary design is protection against threats from firearms. However, the MTS is a true multi-threat shield, offering protection from attacks with blunt objects and edged weapons, as well as punches and kicks. The MTS is certified NIJ Level IIIA (Level III with optional Rifle Plate Insert). The MTS was tested by a National Institute of Justice approved laboratory for ballistic resistance in accordance with Modified/Abbreviated NIJ 0108.01, Threat Level IIIA. The results were “No Penetration,” and the MTS will not fold or bend when shot.
The MTS is designed for everyday carry. To enhance its practicality, it includes an expandable utility pouch with covert access, which offers the ability to carry a wide range of equipment and accessories – from a handgun or Taser to a laptop or tablet. The MTS measures 12 by 17.5 inches when closed. When the shield is unfurled, the MTS can protect an area that is 36.5 by 17.5 inches, with a total ballistic coverage of 639 sq. in. The MTS is a one-piece seamless design that weighs only eight pounds with a military spec webbing strap and 360 degree rotating attachment clips.
The MTS has a ‘special’ retail price of $799. For more information and purchasing, visit: http://forcetraining.com/products/mts.
