I asked, why the entire bag was not bullet proof. The purpose of these panels is not to stop bullets. Its to re-direct the explosion up and down. So less people are injured in the event that the bag is hit by fire and there is an explosion.For a serious collector, this bag is a big deal. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\Surplus\Other Military Surplus". The seller is "olympus_treasure" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
