ACH / MICH Kevlar® Helmets
This ACH / MICH Kevlar Helmets NEW SUSPENSION Ballistic Helmet (aka Kevlar ® Helmets) offer good ballistic protection from Fragmentation and most pistol caliber threats which is why you see most military and SWAT teams in helmets. An even more common reason for helmets is blunt trauma protection from impact with walls, vehicles, clubs, fists, etc., etc.
But please be aware that your head is much more susceptible to blunt trauma than your body. ANY impact of a bullet on a helmet WILL CAUSE INJURY AND CAN CAUSE DEATH. You put the odds more in your favor with head protection, but (as with ANY armor) no guarantee of invulnerability can be made. Of course blunt trauma is usually preferable to the alternative!
All our helmet models include the Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) Blunt Trauma Protection Pad System
0.5″ or 0.75″ or 1.0″ thick pads of engineered impact protection to cushion your skull from impact.
Many other helmets look the same on the outside, but have the older generation nylon / leather / open cell foam interior suspension – NOT up to modern standards.
If it says “universal fit”, “comfort fit” or “standard fit”, or other than ACH blunt trauma protection pads, you are missing critical protection for your brain.
These older systems can be fine on comfort, but offer MUCH less blunt trauma protection on impact.
