F70

Ballistic Helmet

The F70 ballistic helmet provides a high-value combination of ballistic performance and low weight that far exceed conventional (ACH) helmet specifications. 

Available in Mid-Cut and High-Cut options, the integrated and configurable helmet design is intended for conventional military combat as well as special forces and law enforcement operations. Maintains the same coverage as the ACH helmet – at a much lighter weight >30% weight reduction (when compared to ACH specifications for a finished shell)

Innovative no thru-hole construction for mounting the NVG shroud, retention system and rails, which increases the shell’s effective protection area. Geometry is engineered for improved coverage of critical areas and increased comfort compared to conventional (ACH) helmets.

Shell is manufactured with advanced Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). Modular and configurable to support a variety of mission profiles. Multiple accessories available including visor. Ballistic mandible available for Mid-Cut helmet only.

High-Cut evaluated and determined suitable for U.S. Air Force static line and military free-fall operations under the Test Parachute Program (TPP)
