When researching soft body armor it's important to understand the differences in material and construction techniques. 100% Aramid, other ballistic fabric from respected manufacturers, or single component constructed panels, for example, are often cost effective, but will be heavier, less flexible, and thicker. They also may not include many performance enhancing features such as sub-shoot pack reinforcement stitching or high quality nylon and seals which typically results in loss of performance, durability, and longevity of the armor.
AR500 Armor Trauma Pads
Designed to be worn in conjunction with and behind your body armor, our Trauma Pads reduce the amount of energy transferred to your body when rounds impact your armor. Our patented ASC (Advanced Shooters Cut) Trauma Pads match all our armor perfectly.
AR500 Armor Tactical Emergency Personal Injury Kit (EPIK) (IFAK)
The AR500 Armor Tactical EPIK is the standard for MOLLE based medical kits designed with the sole purpose of treating traumatic bleeding injuries. Everything you need and nothing you don't. Our Tactical EPIK is compact, portable, and designed to be attached to your MOLLE compatible plate carrier, rifle bag, or backpack. This kit includes the necessary tools to treat life threatening bleeding wounds (gunshots, knife/stab wounds, or other serious bleeding injuries including arterial bleeding). Conveniently packaged and pre-sorted, we still leave room for expansion and your personal touch.
The Tactical EPIK MOLLE pouch can be unzipped quickly and features an adjustable retention cord which prevents the pouch from falling all the way open when unzipped. This creates a stable platform and allows immediate access to the internals of your kit in mounted positions. An Internal pocket and elastic straps house the Tactical EPIK'scompressed gauze, trauma shears, medical tape, and medical gloves. The hemostatic agent is stored in the interior pocket; with enough exposed to quickly grab when the pouch is opened. The Olaes multi-purpose emergency bandage, chest seals, and compact tourniquet are immediately available and ready to deploy as soon as the kit is unzipped. Three rows of Velcro MOLLE webbing line the front with the included removable Velcro matching color medical patch and a front pocket with zipper closure. Tourniquet mounts are located on each side of the Tactical EPIK pouch. Tourniquets can be mounted via a dedicated MOLLE pouch or via the UV resistant rubber bands which allow rapid deployment.
