The helmet is produced in Kevlar aramid fiber from Dupont. It is a very popular ballistic helmet used by professional military and police units in Europe and the United States.

We only want to make high-quality helmets so the helmet is 100% produced in Europe instead of importing it cheaply from China. We love to stay alive, so for us, it is more important to have a ballistic helmet that does it job, than a helmet that is cheap.

We have designed the bulletproof helmet so you can adapt it to your needs. It allows you to mount additional equipment on the rail and front shroud (side and front rail) such as:

  • Compatible with following rail adapters: 3m Peltor, Sordin, Ops-core AMP arms, Earmor and Unity Tactical

  • COMs headset

  • weapon light

  • camcorder

  • side protection

  • strobe list

  • night vision

  • GoPro camera

  • Up-armor side covers

  • Protective visor

  • NVG Glasses

  • Picatinny Rail adapter

  • Covers for the helmet

  • and much more.

The ARCH helmet weighs only 1.35 kg / 2.97 lbs for the complete helmet. This makes it a bulletproof helmet, which is one of the lightest aramid bulletproof helmets on the market. The less your equipment weighs, the more mobile you will feel.

A layer of polyrea spray paint is applied around the entire helmet, which ensures that your military helmet can withstand rain, oil and similar liquids. This strengthens your bulletproof helmet and allows it to last for many years without the paint fading or the ballistic properties deteriorating.

A high cut helmet with memory foam and BOA Fit

PGD ARCH helmet is a high cut helmet that provides space to wear hearing protection or communication equipment at the same time.

The helmet can be easily adjusted to your needs. It shapes to your head in 2-3 seconds and feels like a "flying" helmet because it fits snugly without feeling tight. We can do that with our 10 Memory Foam Pads liner system in the helmet.

The PGD-10 pad memory foam technology is a specially developed foam technology that reduces blunt force trauma from shots while providing incredible comfort. Memory foam was originally developed for use by NASA to protect against 'impacts'.

You can easily replace the foam, which is attached with velcro.

The ​​ARCH helmet also comes with our PGD buckle system, which uses high-quality materials from BOA, ITW Nexus and Duraflex.

The BOA Fit buckle system fastens the helmet to the head and can be quickly adjusted via the rotary knob. BOA provides a perfomance fit at the highest possible level!

In addition the retention system is adjusted with the 4 Duraflex plastic buckles so that they have the correct length for your head.

Bulletproof, ballistic Kevlar helmet.

An ARCH helmet is made in Kevlar Aramid from Dupont. Dupont is one of the world's leading manufacturers of Aramid fiber.

This means that you have a bulletproof helmet, which is approved for NIJ 0106.01 level 3a, and makes your Kevlar helmet stop firing up to a .44 Magnum.

  • .44 magnum
  • .357 SIG
  • 9 mm.

In addition, the V50 helmet has been tested up to 700 M/S against fragments and shrapnel (17 grains) according to STANAG2920, which is the nato standard for testing of bulletproof materials.

When a bulletproof helmet stops a projectile or fragment, a standard helmet is affected in a 130mm area around the impact, which is also called Blunt force trauma.

Our ARCH ballistic helmet is only affected in an area up to 75 mm. around the impact. It makes a world of difference in how deep the helmet is bent towards your head and thus also how much the helmet mitigates the shot.

An ARCH helmet reduces the depth by up to 50% (according to HPW-TP-0401.01B IIIA), where the trauma is on average 11.2 mm against a 9 mm. It provides significantly greater security and the chance of surviving the trauma from a shot is greater.

    Problem with wearing hearing protectors. The rails are not compatible with the adapter. The rails seem too wide. Besides, a great product.

  • Sturdy, reliable and very adjustable

    About the PGD-ARCH The Positive: * Dial works good. * Padding liner is soft and "wraps" around your head to create a snug but gentle fit. Gets a bit spongy if you are "running&gunning" in warm environments. Nothing strange about that, seems to dry out pretty quick tho. * NVG Bracket is solid - Tested out with Norotos Rhino 2, had to scrape a half millimeter of an edge - after that extremely snug solid fit. * Good velcro inside helmet, liner configuration options are abundant. * Good protection level. * Seems to have similar dimensions as the Ops-Core High-Cut etc. The Negative/Weird: * If you have something big attached to the outside of the helmet, like a helmet cover, and try to remove it, some of the helmet glued velcro might start to come off a bit. Nothing crazy disturbing, just something to keep in mind and to fix with superglue or similar. * The small padding covered strings that run from the dial to above your ears are a bit of a mystery to me. I'm on the fence wether to keep em or not. They sometimes get under my Comtac so it doesn't shut completely tight around the ears which I'm not a fan of. Overall excellent helmet. Can only really compare it to Swedish M90 combat helmet which is around 30 years old with the protection level, fit and comfort from back in those days. As a grunt in the National Guard for well over a decade all I can say is that i wish we could switch to these helmets instead because many reasons; protection, comfort and utility being 3 of them. At this price it's a steal.

  • Best Bang for your buck

    I just purchased the 2nd generation of this helmet. Having served close to a decade in an Army as Infantry these helmets are levels above the old issued helmets. Light, super comfortable . The shroud holds the NVG brackets supper tight. Improvement over the first gen. For this price this is the best new helmet you can buy. And being made in Europe is a big bonus.

    This is a extremely well built helmet with all the right features. As a Sniper a high cut helmet makes the difference, this helmet allows me to get fast target accusation without removing it. Comfortable to wear over extended period of time and allowed for air flow over the head. Itís colour and look is outstanding and a perfect match to my other gear. If you are in the market for a new lid this wonít disappoint. I have used mine on quad bikes and on foot. Highly recommended helmet built by one of the best companies.
