When rounds strike body armor, it creates back face deformation. This effect results in energy transferring through the body armor to whatever and whoever is behind it. While AA Shield ballistic plates provide good energy disbursement, our Trauma Pads will further alleviate the energy transfer caused by the impact by reducing the back face deformation and absorbing much of the energy.The AA Shield Trauma Pad is designed to be worn in conjunction with our hard and soft ballistic plates and closest to the wearer's body.
Construction: Constructed from resilient, thick padding and used in conjunction with our ballistic plates, you will receive the optimal performance in ballistic protection.
Size & Cut: 10" x 12" Shooter's Cut, can also be worn in conjunction with soft body armor and hard rifle plates.
