Generation II Trauma pads are constructed of non-Newtonian material padding that reduces the blunt force trauma felt when Level III hard or Level IIIA soft body armor takes a bullet strike. The pad instantly hardens upon impact, reducing the amount of force transferred to the wearer induced by the plates back face deformation. The pads are ultralight and rugged with an Ultrasonic Welded Seal, a Rip Stop Cover, and an improved core that decreases back face deformation by dispersing and absorbing energy over the surface area of the pad. The pads are designed to be placed close to the body, behind your armor platform in your carrier pocket.
Each pad has a thickness of only .25″. Weight is dependent on the size of the pad you order. 8″ x 10″, 10″ x 12″ and 11″ x 14″ pads have the tapered Advanced Shooters Cut (ASC) which matches the AR500 Armor plates and allows the wearer’s arms greater mobility to perform firearms tactics. The 11″ x 15″ has a slightly tapered Backpack Cut on the top corners. The 6″ x 8″ pad is rectangular, the 6″ x 6″ pad is square, and the 9.5″ x 6″ ABS pouch is tapered on the bottom corners. Trauma pads do not add any additional ballistic protection to your armor platform. Please contact us if ordering multiple pads as a discount may apply.
