Baker Batshield

The Baker Batshield was developed by a veteran NYPD officer who identified some of the restrictions and challenges present when using only hard ballistic shields. Additionally, he wanted to create a portable armor system that would be advantageous for the patrol cops as well: not just SWAT (or ESU for NY) or other special units. What he ended up inventing is a folding, relatively light-weight, transportable, multi-use soft armor system that I believe is ideal for patrol officer use - as well as Immediate Response deployment use for specialized units, plain clothes units, etc.

Pretty cool concept, a light, easy to carry shield, shaped like a bat.

I saw this thing on cold case files! Neat concept, looks really easy to use.
