Professional Trauma plate made out of special light and strong material
Trauma plate is added to the vest to help lessen the "blunt trauma" bruising (or cracked bone) that happens when a bullet is stopped by the vest. Even though your vest stops the bullet, it still hits like a sledgehammer. A trauma plate helps spread out this impact and lessen the severity of injury to the mid-chest and sternum bone that is so vulnerable just under the skin.
Vest are N I J certified Without a Trauma plate, thus we strongly recommend the Trauma Plate.
