Blast Boxers

Blast Boxers

BCB International's award-winning and shrapnel capturing underwear, Blast Boxers, were a hit at this year's SOFIC (Special Operations Forces Industry Conference) in Tampa, Florida (May 17 — 19). U.S. Congressional Research reports show that IEDs have caused 50 percent of all American combat casualties in Afghanistan€¹both killed and wounded. The groin area of a soldier is typically under-protected by normal body armor, and there has been an alarming rise in soldiers suffering blast injuries to the groin area. The Blast Boxers are a pair of underwear made of Kevlar that provide significant protection of a soldier's groin against blast and fragment injuries caused by IEDs. Andrew Howell, BCB International's Managing Director, says, "Extensive trials and ballistic tests have shown that the Blast Boxers capture most of the gravel and fragments blasted at it by an IED.  Service personnel who have worn them in combat situations and survived IED blasts have told us that they made a real difference to their safety." MSRP: $77. www.survivalaids.com.
