Patriot3's Flex Shield with Flex-Mode capability allows it to conform to various surfaces with a deployment time of approximately 10 seconds. Pulling the release tab allows the shield to drop into Flex-Mode, providing ease of use over patrol vehicle doors or windshields. Stiffening rods can also be inserted into Flex Shield to make it more rigid for standard shield usage. In addition to the featured grab handle, the shield's ideal size when rolled makes storage and transport convenient. Weighing in at 11 pounds, Flex Shield is 24-by-45 inches when fully deployed and 24-by-8 inches in roll form.
