Soft Armor Trauma Pads

From: $59.00

Reduce BackFace Signature

Our Level IIIA Soft Armor Trauma Pads were created to reduce blunt force trauma when hit by a projectile while wearing a bulletproof vest.  Even when rounds don’t penetrate the armor, significant damage can occur due to the force of the impact.  Backface Signature (BFS) is the result of the energy exchange between the impacting projectile and the human body (shielded by a bullet resistant vest) which does not involve penetration of the skin.

Our Soft Armor Trauma Pads ensure significant reduction to the Backface Signature, resulting in less bodily damage after impact.  These are to be worn inside a bulletproof vest, between the body and armor and come in various sizes.  They are made using our flexible soft body armor for ultimate comfort, and are sealed in waterproof Sonobond covering to ensure they won’t be compromised by water or daily wear.

Due to Covid-19 manufacturing delays, please allow up to 6 weeks for your order to be shipped.
