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 multi-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).
