The Bastion™ NIJ Level IIIA Ballistic Helmet sets a new standard in protective gear, answering a broad range of needs - from law enforcement agencies to military personnel, and even civilians seeking robust protection. Featuring a contemporary shape and design for maximum comfort, function, and protection. With a slightly higher cut at the brow than the traditional ACH, the Bastion™ allows the operator to maintain sharp peripheral vision within a broader range of motion. With clipped corners at the rear, the operator can enter the prone position without the helmet digging into their shoulders or neck. With a raised contour above the ears, the operator can lean in and take aim without risk of breaking the seal around their ear protection or comms. The Bastion™ is carefully designed to provide IIIA protection while eliminating unnecessary ambient interference, ensuring a more focused mission, and providing a superior operator experience. Pressed in the United States and assembled in White City, Oregon.
Optimized for Law Enforcement and Beyond: Highly favored by U.S. law enforcement, and perfectly suited for military and civilian applications.
Enhanced Field of Vision and Mobility: Unique brow design allows expanded peripheral vision and a greater range of motion.
Comfort in Prone Position: Rear clipped corners for comfort and functionality in prone positions, eliminating discomfort.
Aluminum NVG Mount Shroud
The solid aluminum NVG mount shroud is designed to accommodate a Wilcox™ G24 optical mount. With three integrated anchor points to receive concealed bolts from the backside, the Bastion™ shroud presents a cohesive no-snag design that is unparalleled by any other shroud. Finished with a heat cured Cerakote® H-Series Ceramic matte finish, the Bastion™ NVG shroud is as sleek as it is functional.
Aluminum M-Lok™ Side Rails
The solid aluminum side rails feature similar design elements to the shroud, with integrated anchor points to conceal all hardware and reduce interference. Designed on the M-LOK™ platform with five fully functioning slots per rail, the Bastion™ side rails are a force to be reckoned with. There is no stronger side rail in the industry, guaranteed.
Exterior Hook & Loop System
The Bastion™ exterior hook & loop (i.e. “Velcro™”) system enhances the helmet function while paying tribute to its namesake, the distinctive and timeless fortress bastions seen throughout history. Secured using 3M mil spec adhesive, the Bastion™ hook and loop system is designed to withstand the most extreme weather conditions with excellent coverage in key locations for full outfitting, with or without a helmet cover.
4-Point Retention Harness
Inside the Bastion™ ballistic helmet, the 4-point retention harness with chin strap can be adjusted by one hand to fit as needed in the field without removing the helmet. For more significant adjustments the harness can be repositioned securely to a blanket of interior molded hooks, making it easily adjustable to suit the operator’s needs without tools.
Memory Foam Pad Suspension
The Bastion™ Gen 3 memory foam pads work to create the softest and most comfortable ballistic helmet suspension in the industry. 7/8" (22mm) thick and exceeding threat level IIIA requirements with, they were engineered to protect from concussions on severe impact. Each pad is layered with ultra soft open cell memory foam and a high-density shock absorbent closed-cell base, and enclosed in a soft breathable satin-like outer layer with a hook & loop backing for convenient repositioning inside the helmet. The Bastion™ ballistic helmet can be worn all day without fatigue.
