National Geographic to Showcase the Baker Ballistics PatrolBat in Upcoming Series

LITITZ, PA – The National Geographic (NAT GEO) Television Network has recognized the protective superiority of the Baker Batshield® line of ballistic shields and included the Baker Ballistics PatrolBat™ model in the new television series named Showdown of the Unbeatables.  The segment featuring the Baker Batshield® is scheduled to air Friday night May 9th at 9:00pm Eastern.

Lt. Al Baker (NYPD ESU ret.), President of Baker Ballistics, LLC comments, “when representatives of the NAT GEO network first contacted our organization they stated it appears you have an excellent design of ballistic shield.  Our response was it’s better than excellent.  When the patrol officer needs portable ballistic cover to enhance their safety and performance, the Baker Batshield® is simply the best.”

A wide range of testing performed prior to the competitive “showdown” event confirms an awesome level of performance and safety is provided to the user.  Law enforcement officers are encouraged to watch this NAT GEO promotional video and to view the entire episode on May 9th – witness first-hand how the Baker Batshield® performs under some extremely rigorous test conditions, which includes abundant gunfire.

Trusted and utilized by more than 800 law enforcement and military customers, Baker Ballistics has provided more than 3,500 units of armor to users worldwide.
