N49 ULW

Ballistic Helmet

The N49 Ultra Light Weight (ULW) Ballistic Helmet is for operators who need to have the ability to move faster, wear for longer periods with comfort and have optimal ballistic protection.  Despite its deceptively light weight, the N49 provides NIJ Level IIIA protection.  

At just over one pound, the N49 is the lightest helmet to provide ballistic fragmentation and blunt impact protection. Shell is manufactured with advanced Ultra- High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE).

No holes through the shell of the helmet for any accessories other than the standard 3 hole NVG bracket eliminating the possibility for secondary projectiles. Bolt-less retention and no-bolt-thru rails reduces weight and maximizes industry standard ballistic protection.

Full tactical kit is standard configuration with Rails, NVG and Bungees. High-Cut allows for easier integration with ear protection, communications and other tactical accessories.

Suitable for:

  • First Responders
  • Military
  • Special Forces
