Protect yourself from incoming rounds, blast debris, and blunt force trauma with the Protector Helmet from Armored Republic: Rated to stop Level IIIA threats, the Protector will defeat all handgun rounds. This helmet has a light weight of 3 pounds and an adjustable under-the-chin suspension system.
The Protector Helmet is based on the classic PASGT helmet issued for decades in middle eastern conflicts, however, unlike those older designs, the Protector features an adjustable suspension system and enhanced padding.
This helmet provides single-hit protection against all handgun threats and is tested in accordance with NIJ 0106.01 level IIIA standards with .44 magnum rounds.* It is principally made of an integrated formation of aramid fiber, placed under high heat and pressure. This material is popular for lightweight armor for its high strength and is especially resilient in extreme temperatures.
The outer surface of the helmet shell is coated in a matte finish with a walnut powder texture, while the helmet edge is covered by low-friction rubber. It features a boltless retention system and a full shell to cover your entire head, unlike some modern designs.
*The tests were conducted with .44 mag (an NIJ 0101.06 IIIA threat) but otherwise followed the procedure of the NIJ 0106.01 (shot placement, BFD methods, etc).
