Our protective ballistic and tactical helmets are made to meet your needs and designed to withstand some of the world's most powerful handgun threats.
We have tested them thoroughly because we give a damn about keeping your head in one piece. The helmets provide you with more protection than the normal NIJ standard 0106.01 because they are tested against a .44 Magnum and .357 Sig. They give you a V50 protection against fragments and shrapnel up to 700 m/s as the ballistic helmets are tested according to STANAG2920. The helmets have reduced damage impact in the head and neck and protects against the most advanced handguns due to our advanced ballistic aramid structure. All of this might just save your life.
Oh yeah, besides keeping your fragile head safe and in place the helmets provide resistance to extreme temperatures, fire, water, moisture and ultraviolet light (UV). And they come in your favourite colors Khaki, Multicam, Multicam Black, OD Green, Navy Green, Navy, Nato Blue, Coyote Brown and Black.
The ballistic helmets use the best in the business high-performance man-made aramid fiber from Kevlar made by the leading European bulletproof manufacturer Dupont. It is just as good as the famous Twaron aramid from Teijin.
What is a Tactical Helmet?
A tactical helmet is designed to give protection in combat situations. Originally designed for the military it later found a way into law enforcement and similar branches. In the last century, its use has developed from stopping shrapnels to stopping gunfire.
In the 1970s Dupont introduced a lightweight fiber material called Kevlar, which is now synonymous with protective armor. Other manufacturers like Twaron fiber from Teijin is also popular.
Modern helmets come with different paddings for comfort and a multitude of options and addons.
Why would you want a ballistic helmet?
The easy answer is military contractors who need combat protection but have to provide their tactical gear or just aren’t satisfied with the gear provided for them.
For a civilian it is mostly for the obvious reasons: Natural disasters, so tornados and hurricanes don’t drop trees and bricks on you, domestic or foreign Invasions, rebellions, laser-shooting alien invasions, doomsday zombie apocalypse or just in case of something awful happens.
What is the best ballistic helmet?
The best ballistic helmet is the one that safe your life and also lets you operate without restrictions. You only really need the security of a ballistic helmet once, to make the purchase worthwhile. No bulletproof equipment is 100% bulletproof and modern helmets give different ranges of protection depending on what NIJ level they are tested at.
Helmets have a wide range of advantages such as protecting against a falling object, impacts from the edge of a rifle or hammer, freeing your hands by installing cameras, light etc. on the helmet, protecting against head accidents such as bumping heads together.
For a long time, the culture in special forces, SWAT teams etc. saw tactical helmets as a weakness. If you needed protection from falling debris, then their cover was already blown and the mission failed. in this case, it was more important to get the hell out of there than wearing a helmet. They have eventually figured out that by mounting rails on the helmet, it is possible to add all sorts of useful stuff on the helmet such as light, cameras, communications etc.
Also, you cannot underestimate the psychological effect of wearing a helmet. The confidence boost of feeling safer and knowing who your friends are might add to your performance.
Can military helmets stop a grenade?
Ballistic helmets are intended to prevent head injuries primarily from falling objects especially debris from explosions - think artillery, bombs, rockets, hand-thrown grenades, satchel charges, etc. Modern helmets like this one protect against certain types of handguns depending on the NIJ security level. Being hit by other types of blunt objects like the edge of a rifle, or the swing of a handheld hammer, or a bayonet would probably leave you with a headache or concussion, but let you survive if you are wearing a tactical helmet.
How good is Kevlar fiber?
All our bulletproof helmets are made with aramid from Kevlar, which is a high-performance man-made fiber. The company behind this aramid is Dupont, which are a European company and a leading manufacturer of bulletproof aramids. This fiber is also very similar to the well-known Twaron aramid from Teijin, and the aramid fibers are very similar.
The Twaron fiber has a good resistance against:
No melting point (meltdown of Kevlar fibers starts at 500° C)
Strong against heat, sharp objects and chemical agents.
It has a very high strength relative to the weight of the material.
About the ARCH helmet
Our ARCH helmet is designed to meet the latest requirements on the battlefield. This helmet is high-cut at the ears which give you room for hearing protection or communication equipment. This gives a lightweight ballistic helmet, so you also can attach accessories on the rail system on the side of the helmet, with a Picatinny Rail Adapter included for all our helmets. Also, there is an integrated Night Vision Goggle Mount on the front of the helmet.
This allows the following equipment to be attached to the ballistic helmet:
video recording equipment
Up-armor side covers
Night vision mount
Picatinny Rail adapter
Covers for the helmet
And much more.
Additionally, you can attach a GoPro camera to the front shroud. An ARCH bulletproof helmet gives you a lot of opportunities to attach a variety of accessories, making it a formidable helper.
About the MICH helmet
Our MICH helmet gives you the same opportunities as our ARCH helmet. The difference is that our MICH helmet is with Low cut, which means that this provides more protection by the ears, and therefore there is no room for the same communication equipment or hearing protection unless it is in a small headset. You will have the same opportunities when it comes to adding accessories to the rail system.
