U.S. Armor revealed their new Ballistic Underwear at SHOT Show 2014, a product designed to offer ballistic protection for the femoral artery and groin. The product protects the law officer or military personnel from a fatal gunshot to the femoral artery; an area previously unprotected by other body armor items worn in the field. Although an officer’s quality of life would go down dramatically after a gunshot wound to the groin region, an injury to the femoral region is a life-threatening situation. If an EMT or Doctor is not immediately present to treat a severe injury to the femoral artery, the life expectancy of the injured officer is extremely low. A high percentage of officers injured in this way would bleed to death before showing up at a nearby hospital. With the new Ballistic Underwear product, officers can now comfortably be protected in this vital area from fatal threats that they face every day.
