Update (July 27): The Impactor will be introduced in about 120 days due to production delays, according to an announcement from Safariland.

Safariland has introduced the Monadnock Impactor, a non-ballistic, multi-functional arm shield that's durable, lightweight and provides protection for the officer in both defensive and counter-strike situations, according to the company.

The Model 5500 Impactor is designed to work with defensive baton techniques and OC spray, as a tool for controlling combative or uncontrollable subjects.

It can be used by first responders and in environments sensitive to a public display of force, such as hospitals, school or courtrooms. It's constructed of a non-ballistic, reinforced polycarbonate for increased impact resistance and tensile strength, and will not warp or crack. It connects to an officer's arm via adjustable, padded straps that help absorb and dissipate impact. Its ribbed design adds strength to the shield while maintaining its light weight.

Designed for use on either arm, the Impactor can be used alone or in conjunction with a baton, as it features a control slot for the baton, which can also be used for pinning a suspect's wrist or forearm. Integrated into the handle design is a secure holder for a Defense Technology brand MK-3 or MK-4 OC spray canister allowing easy deployment of the OC. The Impactor is excellent for blocking, front jab, middle block or rear jab techniques to subdue and control suspects.

The Impactor includes a location for adding customized agency identification labels. Reflective ID labels are hook-and-loop compatible and are offered with placards showing Police, Sheriff, Corrections, or State.

Offered in black, the Impactor is available with a suggested retail price of $139. Additionally, for shipments within the continental U.S., the product includes an inert MK-3 OC Spray canister for training purposes.
