Hatch XTAK pads are the lightest and strongest product of it's kind ever produced. The hard thermal plastic urethane layer shaped like an 'X' on the outside of the pad create a reinforced protective layer that also bends with the arm. The shock absorbing high density foam provide excellent protection, and the Coolmax moisture wicking lining on the inside help provide additional comfort to the wearer. The straps to secure the XTAK to the wearer are made of spandex so they stretch and secure with Veclro panels. The Hatch XTAK design represents a whole new level of tactical protection.
