NO STAND-ALONE PROTECTION
Must be worn in conjunction with certified ballistic panels and body armor. The ZB-7 Trauma Pad is not armor and provides no ballistic protection. The Trauma pad dissipates some, but not all, of the energy transmitted through a ballistic vest or armor when impacted by a bullet or other object and the ZB-7 Trauma Pad reduces but does not eliminate, backface deformation and blunt trauma. The trauma pad will not eliminate the transmission of kinetic energy from a bullet or other object into your body and will not elimiate the risk of seious injury or death even when the trauma pad is worn in conjunction with ballistic panels and boday armor.
An innovative padding system available only through 5.11 Tactical, our Trauma Pad Carrier Shirt is patterned after 5.11’s comfortable Loose Fit Undergear crew and includes front and rear mesh carriers. Moisture-wicking, antimicrobial and lightweight. Imported.
To use, slide a ZB-7 Trauma Pad™ into each panel shirt pocket (with the 5.11 logo facing you) before putting on your body armor.
5.11 keeps you at the cutting edge of safety, accuracy, speed and performance. We’re proud to introduce our new ZB-7™ Trauma Pad™ – powered by Zoombang™. Pair it with your body armor to upgrade your protection against blunt trauma.
About Zoombang™ polymer:
Responds immediately in direct proportion to force applied
Offers support and cushioning at rest, flexes to fit your body
Won’t melt, freeze or deteriorate with temperature variations
Made in the USA
At rest, ZB-7™ (powered by Zoombang™) is soft and conforms easily to the body. But under shear force from blunt-trauma impact, vibration or g-force side loads, it temporarily transforms to a solid to dissipate energy. Grooves built into the pad help improve airflow and allow its semi-liquid nature to conform to your body.
How it works:
The Zoombang material is soft and pliable when at rest.
Upon impact, its molecules lock together into a solid state, dissipating the shock across a wider area.
After impact it returns to its initial state.
Zoombang’s remarkable phase-change polymers are used by professional athletes in the NFL, NBA, NHL and NASCAR.
Recognizing the benefits of using the trauma pad powered by the proprietary Zoombang™ polymer material in combination with body armor, 5.11 entered into an agreement with Impact Innovative products, LLC, the creator of this trauma pad, granting 5.11 exclusive rights to sell the trauma pads under the designation ZB-7™ in the law enforcement and military markets.
The ZB-7 Pad weighs 6 ounces.
