Quick Overview



AR500 Armor® 10” x 12” Blunt Force Trauma Pad (NON-BALLISTIC) – Patented Advanced Shooters Cut (ASC)

AR500 Armor® Trauma Pads utilize slim and Ultralight non-Newtonian layers and padding to decrease blunt force trauma on impact by decreasing back face deformation by both disbursing and absorbing energy over the increased surface area of the trauma pad.

Back face deformation occurs when a round impacts body armor. This results in felt energy transfer through the body armor to whatever is behind it. While AR500 Armor® Hard Body Armor has inherently good energy disbursing properties throughout the strike face; our Blunt Force Trauma Pads will further mitigate energy transfer. By decreasing back face deformation and absorbing energy our Trauma Pads mitigate the transfer of energy through the Body Armor and the Trauma Pad resulting in less felt energy.

The AR500 Armor® Trauma Pad is designed to be worn in conjunction with our Level III Hard and Level IIIA Hybrid Soft Body Armor (behind the armor and closest towards your body). The non-Newtonian portion of our Blunt Force Trauma Pad instantly hardens upon impact, decreasing back face deformation and energy transfer. Built in padding behind our non-Newtonian layers improve comfort and have allowed us to create an ultralight and slim Blunt Force Trauma Pad.

Dimensions: 10" x 12" Patented Advanced Shooters Cut (ASC) - (US Patent # 9021621 B1, Dated May 5, 2015) - Compatible with all 10" x 12" Body Armor, and many other sizes

Review from Pat Review by Pat
They arrived in 20 degree weather so I thought they where hard and rigid but once they warmed up they became flexible again. ride great under the plates. (Posted on 12/9/2015)

Review from Chris Review by Chris
I love the pad, very comfortable and protective feel. It fit correctly behind my plate which is the same side. It also kept my body warm while wearing it and knowing that it will save my life. (Posted on 11/26/2015)

Review from Charles Topping Review by Charles Topping
Well worth the money spent. I watched many videos and read many,many reviews before I settled on AR500 armor. the extra weight is a comfort and gives me a sense of security that even the military body armor never did. (Posted on 5/12/2015)
Review from Daniel Kravatz Review by Daniel Kravatz

Review from Corey Review by Corey
Great product. Production times is long, but demand is high and the price point is great for products such as these. I own a Mayflower plate carrier and have Front curved level 3 w build up and flat back build up with curved sides. bought the trauma pad as my last piece and fits great in my rig. quality product, just hope i never have to NEED it, will be using it though.

Review from Ryan Ussery Review by Ryan Ussery
Well worth the extra money after watching videos on this product. They add virtually no weight and feel extremely comfortable behind the plates. I hope I never have to find out personally, but I feel at ease should that ever happens. (Posted on 2/26/2015)
Review from Richard Review by Richard
After watching your video on these Trauma Pads I knew that this is a add on that I needed to have. They fit perfect and add very little weight but add that security of mind. Thank you for a great product at a very good price. (Posted on 12/23/2014)
Review from Mabe002 Review by Mabe002
Can't rate the performance (and hope I never have to). But the quality appears to be excellent. The only thing I could request is a free sticker with every order. (Posted on 12/23/2014)
Review from James Powell Review by James Powell
Feel great behind the plates but I hope I don't ever have to test them for impact absorption! (Posted on 11/14/2014)
Review from Tien Nguyen Review by Tien Nguyen
These pads feel great under my ESAPI plates as well as my AR500 plates. Thankfully I've not had the chance of putting them to the test but they are better than nothing or wearing additional KEVLAR for impact absorption. (Posted on 9/25/2014)
Review from Hubert Review by Hubert
A must have add on. Fits well, adds very little to overall bulk and is not noticed when wearing. It's like an airbag in your car; you hope that it performs as designed should it ever be put to the test. (Posted on 9/1/2014)
Review from Cliff Martin Review by Cliff Martin
Fit well, light weight and non bulky pads. Everyone should have a set in their carrier.

Review from Edwin L Fetzer Review by Edwin L Fetzer
Great stuff these pads. They don't bulk like others I have utilized. (Posted on 7/30/2014)
Review from Mike S Review by Mike S
Worth it for the extra padding behind the steel plates for comfort alone. Minimal added bulk. (Posted on 7/29/2014)

Review from Wa Doc Review by Wa Doc
Fits well in each of my two carriers. One Blackhawk! and the other a no-namer. (Posted on 4/28/2014)
Review from James Review by James
Great product and very compact. Adds comfort without the bulk! (Posted on 4/23/2014)
Review from Derek Review by Derek
Like "Sabot" said, I can't attest for the ability of the trauma pads but they make wearing the armor much more comfortable and they also help fill out some of the extra space in my plate sleeve. No extra bulk plus added comfort, what's not to like?! I'd recommend a set to anyone! (Posted on 4/14/2014)
Review from Sabot Review by Sabot
Can't vouch for the ability"Thankfully" but the design and fit is not noticeable or bulky underneath (Posted on 3/3/2014)
