Only recently we've been able to read in the news about motorcycle riders that were riding down the highway, minding their own business, and they got shot in the back by car drivers. It does happen, and often can be attributed to either road-rage or gangs.
MJ Safety Solutions have the solution for you: a bulletproof backpack! Now you can transport extra stuff on your motorcycle, and keep safe from all those gun-packing, SUV driving, idiots out there. The backpack will keep out 9mm bullets, including hollow point.
The bulletproof backpacks even have side pockets made for iPods. Ideal for riding your motorcycle, and keeping safe from flying bullets.
Price: US$ 175
Now, the story would be funny, if it weren't for the actual market for these bags; SCHOOL CHILDREN! The bags were produced by some worried parents after several school shooting incidents. So these bulletproof backpacks aren't meant for bikers, they're meant for school kids! Sad (BTW, this is not a criticism on the producers of the backpacks - fair play to them, but on the general state of schools).
Here's a video explaining the backpacks (1 minute 53 seconds)
