agree  RHELLER: this must be what they are talking about - does sound a little odd

agree  Laurel Porter: I think this hits closer to the mark (eww) than Gayle's - only the thicker ones would be at all feasible for use as armor (singular).

sanitary pads


Explanation:
Looks like a typo. 'Sanitary' pads or just 'pads' - this is the common everyday term for them.

Sanitary towels and sanitary napkins are the formal product names.

(other typos: 'armour' 'tampons as missiles')
