Armor Testing: Blunt Force Trauma



When your body armor stops a projectile, there's still significant energy that must be displaced in the process. The type of armor you choose and how you use it, or layer it, is critical.

We work with Gary Hughes of Survival Armor in this video to demonstrate the differences in how steel, ceramic and ceramic with soft armor backer dramatically changes how that energy is displaced, thus reducing the risk of blunt force trauma to the wearer.

Also, a big thank you to Primary & Secondary for bringing us together to do this excellent collaborative work!
