Hatch Introduces Soft Thigh Protector To Its Popular Centurion™ Disturbance Control Line

January 01, 2006
Temecula, CA

Hatch introduces their new TPX200 Centurion Soft Thigh Protector specifically designed for blunt trauma protection during riot control situations. Designed to cover the hip and thigh area, the TPX200 features a multi-layer design comprising an inner layer of polyester knit fabric laminated to 2mm sponge foam, then a 5mm high density foam imbedded with a polyethylene internal stiffener. Covered with 420 denier nylon, this system provides excellent shock absorbing protection, yet is also extremely flexible and comfortable.

A four inch elastic with hook-and-loop overlay wraps around the thigh to hold the TPX200 Thigh Protector in place. A web belt with two and one quarter inch polymer buckle holds the hip protector in place at the waist. The groin protector is adjustable and removable and is connected to the thigh protector portion via 2 – one and one quarter inch polymer buckle.

The TPX200 Soft Thigh Protector is intended for use with the Hatch Disturbance Control Kits and is available in one size with an MSRP of $97.50. More information is available at or by calling Customer Service at (800) 347-1200. Available in January 2006.
