Up-Armored Briefcase



The days of “BBH” shields are over (Big Bulky Heavy).  Ace Link’s up-armored briefcase provides three level IIIA soft panels (approximately 14×19” each) that flip out like a switchblade to give you a shield with coverage totaling 19” by 37”.  Upon seeing this, a local LEO leadership asked out loud: “Why isn’t this in the trunk of every cruiser?”  We share that sentiment!
