Trauma Pad 10x12
$31.99

Description

RMA’s 10×12 trauma pad utilizes lightweight foam padding that decreases back face deformation and dissipates impact energy, reducing transmitted force. These body armor Trauma Pads are NON-BALLISTIC.

Not only does a trauma pad reduce energy transfer, but they also greatly increase comfort for whomever is wearing body armor. The trauma pad reduces blunt force trauma by absorbing energy over the surface area.

Back face deformation has the potential to occur when a round impacts any type of body armor. This energy transfer has the potential to be felt regardless of which body armor ballistic panel you decide to protect yourself with. Though most of our ar500 and ar550 steel body armor has inherently good energy disbursing properties throughout the strike face, our trauma pads will further mitigate energy transfer and back face deformation hazards which your body may absorb.

Dimensions:  10″ x 12″

Trauma Pad Weight:  6.08 ounces

Thickness: .25″ Thin profile

 

Which Armor Is Right For Me?

TRAUMA PAD FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a Trauma Pad?

A trauma pad is utilized behind your body armor plate to reduce or mitigate the transfer of blunt force energy from a bullet after it strikes a body armor plate. While the main goal of body armor is to defeat the round that strikes it as well as minimize that backface deformation, the left over energy from the bullet can still be felt by the wearer. Because of that, some people feel its necessary to use trauma pads to further reduce the impact of the energy that impacts your body.

The main goal of a trauma pad is to decrease the risk of injury to the wearer of the body armor.

Do I need to wear a trauma pad?

For anyone who owns or will be purchasing steel body armor (ar500, ar550, etc), we highly recommend the use of a trauma plate, as steel body armor doesn’t boast a built in composite backplate to reduce energy transfer like a ceramic/composite plate does. On a Ceramic body armor plate with a UHMWPE backer, the polyethylene backer does much of the work to reduce the backface deformation and mitigate energy transfer to the body. Can a trauma pad help mitigate some blunt force energy transfer on a level 4 body armor plate, for example? Sure, but it’s not nearly as essential as it is for a steel plate that does not have a backplate built into it.

PLEASE NOTE THAT BY PLACING AN ORDER YOU AGREE TO COMPLY WITH ALL LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL LAWS REGARDING BODY ARMOR.

**United States law restricts possession of body armor for convicted felons. Many U.S. states also have penalties for possession or use of body armor by felons. RMA Armament, Inc., is also unable to ship any body armor plates, Shields, etc. to the state of Connecticut. By purchasing body armor from RMA Armament, Inc., you are certifying that you have not been convicted of any crime that would restrict you from being able to purchase or possess body armor under any Federal or State laws. Furthermore, you are acknowledging that you do not intend to use the body armor for any criminal purpose. RMA Armament, Inc., does reserve the right to refuse to sell body armor to any person.

    Excellent product

  5. Jack B. (verified owner)

    I wear a Jpc 2.0 with the rma ceramic level iv and getting this trauma pad has added a little bit more comfort to the plate carrier, however it might not fit the best with your plate but you should be able to get it all in there. It is worth the investment especially if you believe that your plates will take multiple hits.

  6. Daniel S. (verified owner)

    Well fitted and comfortable.

  7. Patrick (verified owner)

    Hope I will never be able to evaluate the performance, but if the product is comparable to the shipping, I should be in good hands.

  8. Logan (verified owner)

    Pretty good stuff

  9. Jordan (verified owner)

    Seems to be really good construction with a tight fit. Written and video reviews are good. Thankfully I don’t have any personal experience. But would recommend their products highly.

  10. Ryker (verified owner)

    Adds a good extra amount of protection without adding a lot of weight. If you can’t afford Level III+ plates, just get Level III and these pads, and you’ll be good to go

  11. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Arrived quickly. Just as ordered.

  12. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Hopeful this never has to be used.

  13. Anonymous (verified owner)

    No complaints

  14. Ron (verified owner)

    These Pads are a must have for these steel plates. RMA provides Superior quality products.
