A high-quality ballistic helmet must fulfill specific criteria to ensure it delivers dependable protection and comfort. Here are the key considerations when defining what makes a good ballistic helmet:
1. Ballistic Protection: The foremost purpose of a ballistic helmet is to safeguard against ballistic threats like bullets and shrapnel. Certification to recognized standards, such as NIJ (National Institute of Justice) or equivalent international standards, is paramount. The helmet must demonstrate robust ballistic performance to ensure adequate protection against specified threats. At MILITECH®, we exclusively offer aramid-cored helmets, emphasizing superior performance with minimal backface deformation in accordance with the US Department of Defense's 9mm protocol's reference.
2. Comfort and Fit: A good ballistic helmet should provide a comfortable fit, catering to various head shapes and sizes. The interior padding and suspension system should be adjustable, ensuring a snug and secure fit that doesn't lead to discomfort during extended use.
3. Weight: The helmet's weight is crucial, especially for prolonged wear. It should be lightweight to mitigate fatigue and strain on the wearer. Nevertheless, it's essential to strike a balance between weight and protection. Extremely lightweight helmets may compromise ballistic performance due to excessive backface deformation. MILITECH® has chosen to employ imported premium-quality aramid in its helmets, which, while heavier than UHMWPE-cored helmets, substantially reduces backface deformation and maintains a commendable V50 performance against shrapnel and fragments.
4. Compatibility: A versatile helmet should be designed to accommodate accessories like night vision devices, communication systems, and visors. This adaptability allows users to customize their helmets to meet their specific requirements. Most of MILITECH®'s helmets are thoughtfully designed to cater to tactical operations, featuring NVG mounts and side rails to fulfil mission needs.
5. Durability and Longevity: A reputable helmet should be constructed to withstand the demands of its intended use. It must exhibit resistance to impact, varying temperatures, and environmental factors. The materials employed should be durable and consistently maintain their performance over time. MILITECH® exclusively sources imported premium-quality aramid from trusted suppliers like Dupont and Teijin for its helmets, ensuring peak performance.
6. Retention System: The helmet's retention system, encompassing the chin strap and harness, should be effortless to adjust and provide a secure fit. Reliability is paramount, as the system should not be prone to loosening during use. To guarantee this, MILITECH® employs thickened nylon webbing in its retention systems.
7. Ventilation: Adequate ventilation is essential to avert overheating during prolonged wear. The helmet's design should facilitate airflow while upholding ballistic protection, and our liner and padding system is designed to achieve this balance.
8. Coverage: The helmet should offer ample head coverage, including the sides and back when required. MILITECH® offers various models to provide protection against threats from different angles.
9. Certifications and Testing: Seek helmets that have undergone NIJ-certified/accredited third-party lab testing and certification to confirm compliance with industry safety and performance standards. MILITECH® helmets have undergone rigorous testing by numerous renowned third-party independent ballistic laboratories around the world, with videos and test reports available on our YouTube channel.
10. User Feedback: User reviews and feedback offer invaluable insights into real-world performance and user satisfaction with specific helmet models. MILITECH® has earned a reputation for providing quality products at a reasonable price.
11. Price: While cost is a factor, it shouldn't be the sole determinant. Striking a balance between quality and affordability is pivotal to ensure that you receive the best value for your investment. MILITECH® strives to offer the most value for your money spent on a quality ballistic helmet.
12. Weight Distribution: A commendable helmet should distribute its weight evenly to prevent strain on the neck and shoulders. The design must take into account the helmet's center of gravity.
Defining an exceptional ballistic helmet entails a meticulous evaluation of these factors to select a helmet that aligns with the user's specific needs and preferences while delivering unwavering ballistic protection.
