PROTECH IMPAC-HT Biceps (Upper Arm) Plate Set

Safariland added PROTECH IMPAC-HT Biceps (Upper Arm) Plate Set to its line of IMPAC special threat plates. The lightweight 7-inch by 8 inch plates come in a set of two and feature an increased curvature that conforms to the shape of the upper arm to provide added protection from handgun threats and trauma. These plates are compatible with the PROTECH Tactical upper arm (biceps) protector soft armor accessory, sliding easily into the special threat plate pocket and are made to be used in conjunction with the soft armor panels included in the accessory. The lightweight design and curvature of the IMPAC-HT Biceps Plate Set provide additional handgun threat and trauma protection to the upper arms without interfering with the officer’s mobility.

The IMPAC-HT Biceps Plate Set has been independently tested* to defeat the following rounds:
