One of the most overlooked parts of any loadout are trauma pads, learn what they're for and why they're so important.

Hi there,


Your armor loadout usually has a plate carrier and armor plates, sometimes side plates. However there's more to ballistic protection than just pure stopping power. When you're hit by a bullet, the physical round may have been stopped by your armor plate, but all of the force that was in that round is still transferred to your body. As a result you may not have actually been wounded, but you sure will feel like it.  


Trauma pads serve two primary purposes. First, to soften the overall impact from a fired round. And second, to spread the force of the impact over the entire area of the pad. These two functions and how they affect you in the field could mean the difference between life and death.


The Importance of Trauma Pads


The force of being hit by a bullet alone can sometimes be enough to knock the wind out of you. Without a trauma pad, this can seriously impair your ability to react and move out of harm's way. 


Read our latest guide on trauma pads and properly invest in your complete safety when planning your next loadout.


I hope this guide helps you and as always, feel free to reach out and contact us for anything. 


Take care and stay safe,

Kevin
