The Best Bulletproof Designer Handbags and Briefcases for 2020

What is a bulletproof designer handbag or briefcase and why should I buy?

In our recent article about the best Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcases, we investigated how useful these bags are for protecting our children against gun violence. While doing our research into Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcases we discovered a whole world of other bulletproofed bags and briefcases for adults. We actually got very excited about the subject.

You will be amazed by what else is out there to protect adults in everyday life. There are even many luxury brands like Gucci, Hermes and Louis Vuitton that are available fitted with bulletproofing so you can still feel stylish while being protected.

These Handbags and briefcases have been specially fitted with lightweight flexible bulletproof panels. It may not be full body protection but it could still save your life if used properly.

We also uncovered a secret world of bulletproof clothing too.

We found that although there are many people who feel that they do not provide enough protection against high powered weapons, something is far better than nothing. In theory, bulletproofing materials can slow down high velocity rounds and reduce them to less than lethal speeds.

This article goes into what to look for in a bulletproof Handbags or bulletproof briefcase insert. During our research we discovered several unexpected things that may make you rethink what bulletproof purse or briefcase to buy and why. Hopefully, you will never need to use one for protection but it never hurts to take extra precautions to be prepared for the worst case scenario.

We would like to be very transparent about what went into writing this article. We do not own any bulletproof Handbags or bulletproof briefcases. We have relied directly on manufacturer input for our research.

Much of our research was done mainly through conversation directly with the manufacturers. Most of them were very accommodating and very keen to share their testing data with us.

What is a Bulletproof Handbag or Briefcase?

Louis Vuitton Level IIIA Bulletproof ICare BagBulletproof Handbags and briefcases are usually no different from any other except that they contain a special soft and flexible bulletproof panel installed in either the side or bottom. They are made in all shapes and sizes. So much so that you would never know that the fashionable person sitting next to you is carry one.

Whether you are an executive going to the office or a stay at home mom going grocery shopping , the armor plates in each bag are the same.

What are Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcase Panels?

Bulletproof handbag and briefcase insertA Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcase panel is the protective bullet resistant material that provides the protection against bullets. They are usually thin and light and can be easily removed from one bag and moved to another.

These panels can be made out of several different materials and can be hard or soft depending on what weapons you are trying to protect against.

Types of Bulletproof Panel Materials

Soft Body Armor

Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcases with their soft protective panels fall into the category of soft body armor. There are three main materials used to create these bulletproof panels: Kevlar, Twaron and Dyneema. They are all designed to be lightweight and bullet resistant. These materials often go by other brand names so be sure to know which you are buying. You can read more about soft armor materials on our Bulletproof Backpack page.

Hard Plate Body Armor

You don't often see Bulletproof Handbags or Briefcases made with hard plate armor due to the weight. This type of armor is much heavier than soft body armor but it provides protection against a much wider assortment of firearms. There are two main materials used to create these hard bulletproof panels: Commercial Ballistic Steel and Ceramic. You can read more about hard plate armor materials on our Bulletproof Backpack page.

How to Use a Bulletproof Handbag or Briefcase

Once you have chosen the perfect Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcase for you, you will need to learn how to use it effectively if you are ever faced with an active shooter situation.

Although what to do may seem obvious but, under stress, you may not know how to react properly. The key is to present as small a target as possible and try to get as much of your body behind the bulletproof panel as possible. This is especially true for your head and core in order to protect the major organs.

How to use a Bulletproof Handbag and Briefcase

What Bullet Resistant Material is Right for Me?

Soft or hard plate armor - which to choose. Well, when it comes to bulletproof Handbags and briefcases, the choice is largely taken out of your hands. Most manufactures default to installing soft NIJ level IIIA bulletproof panels into their bags and briefcases.

If you would like more "stopping power" then you could opt to order a custom hard plate. These panels will weight a lot more but will also protect again higher velocity weapons.

Is it Legal to Own Bulletproof Materials?

Is it legal to own Bulletproof Handbag and Briefcases?(If you live in the United States) Yes - with some exceptions, owning a Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcase - or even a bulletproof vest is completely legal in the United States. Some state laws restrict convicted felons from owning bulletproof vests so they may not be able to own Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcases either. Louisiana prohibits wearing armor on school property or school-sponsored functions. Connecticut forbids the sale of bulletproof vests over the phone or Internet - you must buy in person.

If you plan to travel outside the US, you should check before you leave as some countries like Canada and Australia take a dim view of civilians wearing body armor.

Most retail American manufacturers are not allowed to sell bulletproof products outside of the United States.

Shooting Statistics

Yes, it seems that lately, most mass shooters used an AR15. Would it surprise you to learn that statistically, there are far more shooting incidents using handguns than assault rifles? It sure surprised us! The chart below is the FBI Homicides by weapon used for the year 2019. This chart reveals that most NIJ level IIIA bulletproofing may have saved one of these lives.

Who are the Top Bulletproof Designer Handbag and Briefcase Manufactures?

There are only a few companies in America that make Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcase and bulletproof inserts. Some of our favorites are:

We recommend using caution when dealing with other smaller manufacturers as they often use untested materials or have delivery dates are often months in the future due to low volume.

National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Bulletproof Ratings

Department of Justice logoThe National Institute of Justice (NIJ) sets minimum performance standards for bulletproof protection in their 0101.06 Armor Protection Levels Standard. The current standard is broken down into five different threat levels.

As all handbag and briefcase bulletproofing is NIJ Level IIA, we only focus on it's abilities. You can read more about the NIJ standards and what level will stop what ammunition on our Bulletproof Backpack page.

NIJ Level IIA (handguns) - This level of protection is becoming less and less common.

NIJ Level II (handguns) - This is one of the more common materials used in lightweight vest and clothing.

NIJ Level IIIA (handguns) - This level is the most widely used for soft armor although some hard plate armor is also rated at the NIJ IIIA level. NIJ Level IIA is the protection most commonly used in manufacturing most Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcases.

  • No rifle ammunition protection
  • Protects from everything listed in Level IIA and:
  • Protects from .357 Sig FMJ FN (Flat Nose) bullets
  • Protects from .44 Magnum SJHP (Semi Jacketed Hollow Point)

NIJ Level III (Rifles) - These plates are designed to withstand up to six spaced rifle bullet strikes. Level III plates can be heavy.

NIJ Level III+ (Rifles) - This is not a recognized NIJ Rating but it is one that has been adopted by plate armor manufacturers to recognize their ability to stop more and faster rounds.

NIJ Level IV (Armor Piercing Rifles) - This is the highest rated in the 0101.06 standard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcases Stab Resistant?

Yes bulletproof handbags and briefcases are stab resistant. Having said this, most manufacturers do not pay to have this tested so they cannot represent them as stab proof.

Which is Better Soft or Hard Plate Armor?

Because of the weight of hard plate (metal) armor, you almost never see this type of panel used in a handbag or a briefcase design. Soft armor is much lighter and therefor much more desirable for use in a bulletproof handbag or briefcase.

Are Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcase Panels Washable?

Yes bulletproof handbags and briefcase panels are washable. The actual protective panels may be cleaned with a damp cloth to remove and dirt but it is not recommended for machine washing.

What do Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcase Panels Weigh?

The weight of a bulletproof handbags and briefcase panel is directly related to how much protection it provides. A soft panel will be much lighter than a hard steel plate panel.

Soft Panel Bulletproof Panel (Level IIIA): The average soft panel weights between 1 and 2 pound.

Ballistic Metal Panel (Level III): Depending on the outer coating, the average level III hard panel weights between 5 and 10 pounds.

Ballistic Metal Panel (Level IV): Depending on the outer coating, the average level IV hard panel weights between 8 and 12 pounds.

How Durable are Bulletproof Handbags and Briefcase Panels?

The handbag or briefcase part itself is about as durable as any normal bag. The protective panels are very durable (they are designed to stop bullets for Pete's sake).

In order to stop a bullet from an AR-15 or AK-47, you would need a NIJ Level IV panel. Unfortunately, these panels are constructed from metal or ceramic so they would be quite heavy.
