The FAST or high cut advanced combat helmet (ACH) offers above the ear (ATE) protection, and is tested by an independent laboratory to NIJ IIIA specs – it will stop a .44 magnum.
Made from DuPont™ Kevlar® with a front aluminum shroud designed to fit most ballistic helmet accessories, the ballistic helmet weight is 3 lb. 4 oz. before accessories or customizations.
The polymer side rails, fully adjustable padded dial suspension system, and re-positionable closed-cell padding system work together to make this helmet both functional and comfortable.
