AR500 Firebird Armored Backpack

 AR500 Firebird Armored Backpack

*Manufacturer's lead time: 3-4 weeks

Like the Phoenix, the AR500 Armor® Firebird Armored Backpack is built to stop the bullets used in 95% of gun related homicides. Nobody will know your backpack doubles as a lifesaving tool. The Firebird is a low-profile armor system designed to stop the ammunition used in the majority of shootings, but provides more armor coverage than the standard Phoenix Armor Backpack.

Made from 1000 Denier Cordura, the Firebird weighs less than 3 pounds in its lightest configuration and comes ready to use. The armor is sewn into the pack, so you never have to worry about forgetting to install your armor or having it shift during use.

The Firebird features plenty of storage for your laptop and other personal gear. 

  • Generously sized primary compartment features a laptop sleeve, compatible with nearly all laptops. Perfect for all around general use.
  • Hypalon® accented front upper pocket is designed for compatibility with the largest smartphones on the market, including their cases
  • Large front lower pocket is complete with a key lanyard with hook, and retention pockets for pens and other accessories. It will easily accommodate a full-sized pistol for concealment. 
  • Lined top pocket is located right next to the backpack drag handle. This pocket is lined on the inside with a non-scratch soft fabric and is ideal for storing your sunglasses, wallet, keys, or other accessories.

When you choose to add a trauma pad, we will hand sew the trauma pad properly in place within The Phoenix Armored Backpack, no work or installation on your part is required. Trauma pads are ultra lightweight, adding merely 5.9 ounces for 10” x 12” or 6.5 ounces for 11” x 15”.
