Lightweight PASGT helmets are available incorporating new materials technology to enhance performance and reduce weight. The materials and processes have been altered to increase the content of ballistic material within the shell without increasing the weight. This means that the helmets are not only lighter than their military counterparts, but are able to defeat a wider range of bullets up to NIJ IIIA.
The harness has also had a complete make over, with only 4 bolts being required as opposed to the usual 8, and a new mesh crown pad, which gives excellent load distribution.
The chinstrap had a four point adjustable harness that allows for excellent head retention and balance even when ballistic face shields are used.
The harness can be adjusted to fit a wide variety of head sizes and shapes using five basic adjustament points:
- Velcro adjusted mesh crown pad, to alter the helmet height.
- Velcro adjusted headband, to alter head size fit.
- Plastic Tri Glide buckle on the chinstrap, to alter back to front tilt.
- Two Ladder Lock buckles, to alter the chin strap location.
Moreover, once the helmet is fully adjusted to fit, to remove the helmet one simply releases the press stud on the chinstrap.
The helmet is covered in the latest paint technology not only offering the ability to be tailored to a variety of differed IRR requirements but also providing a very tough and durable finish.
