Spotlight on Trauma Pads
Body armor can save your life, but that doesn’t mean being shot will feel very good. Although comfort might not be your main concern in the event of an ambush or sudden firefight, you want to make sure that you keep your head in the game to make it out of the situation alive. That’s the thinking behind trauma pads, which are essentially slim and extremely light layers of padding worn behind body armor that decrease blunt force trauma on impact so you don’t get injured or stunned. This transfer of energy can be felt regardless of the body armor system you choose, so be sure to wear trauma pads in conjunction with your personal protection armor panels to prevent internal injury and help you stay sharp on the battlefield—where that may be.
Spartan Armor Systems
Spartan Armor Trauma Pads utilize extremely lightweight non-Newtonian layers to decrease blunt force trauma on impact. Spartan Trauma Pads are constructed with nylon ripstop fabric, which is the same material the U.S. Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) is made from.
