Blunt Trauma Plates / Pads

Not to be confused with Rifle Plates, Blunt Trauma Pads are extra soft armor added to thicken the vest, and help lessen the “blunt trauma”, i.e., bruising (or a cracked bone). that happens when a bullet is stopped by a vest.

Even though your vest stops the bullet, it still hits like a sledgehammer – a Blunt Trauma Pad helps spread out this impact and lessen the severity of injury to the mid-Chest and the Sternum bone that is so vulnerable just under the skin.

Tap the middle of your chest with your knuckles.... and then imagine the impact of a bullet pushing on the vest!  Vests are NIJ certified WITHOUT a Blunt Trauma Pad and thus it is not strictly necessary, but we strongly recommend them.

TPS Special Threat Plates

"Trauma Plates on Steroids"

Special Threat Plate - TPS I

Ultra-light Polyethylene Plates are the ultimate Trauma Plate for special threats, short of a Rifle Plate.  (This category has become popularly known as Speed plates.)

Only ~7.5mm thick (0.3") they stop Level 3-A threats all by themselves, plus a host of exotic and special threats - up to and including the .30 cal Carbine round!

Measure the INSIDE of your Trauma Plate Pocket to double-check the size needed. Be sure to allow a little extra for the thickness of the plate.

Flat Plates with a Bend

The 5" by 8" size is ideal for the Front Trauma Plate Pocket on most concealable vests. Bigger sizes fit best on the back, as they are rectangles.

Sweat-Wicking Undershirts

  • Looks just like a cotton T-Shirt, but made out of a special synthetic CoolMAX® fiber which wicks sweat away 3 times faster than cotton.

  • Lab-tested to keep you a little bit cooler, and a LOT drier – sweat evaporates three times faster than cotton (even faster than polypropylene!) Only when sweat is wicked away from the inside of your vest does it have a chance to evaporate and cool you off.

  • Keeps your vest's nylon-covered ballistic panels from feeling so hot and sticky on your skin

  • Saves you from having to wash your vest carrier as often.

  • Get extras, so you can switch out for laundry.

  • No ballistic protection in the shirt of course - but your vest offers a lot more ballistic protection when you wear it - rather than not wearing it in the heat!

  • NOTE:  NOT for use in environments with a high threat of fire. Being a synthetic material Sweat-Wicking Undershirts will melt or burn much faster than natural fibers such as cotton or wool. Special synthetic fire-resistant shirts are made, but are very expensive.
