[CLOSEOUT ITEM] Gen 2 Advanced Combat Helmet

In 2023, new ownership at Ballistic Armor Co. discontinued the popular Gen 2 helmet due to concerns about its country of origin. In its place we created the Bastion™ ballistic helmet, pressed, assembled, and fully made in the United States. It can be found here.

STORAGE: This product is manufactured using an aramid material which naturally breaks down over time. Ultraviolet light accelerates the breakdown of aramid fibers, so be sure to store your helmet in a dark, cool place when not in use to ensure maximum lifespan of the product.

USE: To extend the life of your product, it is strongly recommended that you use a protective cloth cover over the helmet to protect it from UV rays while in the field.

CLEANING: Clean with a soft cloth dampened with water, as needed. Do not use cleaning detergents or abrasive scrubbing materials, as these may compromise the ballistic material. Do not allow the product to sit in water, as this may corrode the ballistic material.

PAD CLEANING: Remove pads from the interior of the helmet and gently rub under warm running water. Squeeze out and air dry. Do not machine wash or dry! Avoid using cleaning detergents as they may break down the memory foam.

We offer a 10-year manufacturer warranty on all Ballistic Armor products. This means we guarantee that your product will remain free of manufacturing defects under normal use for 10 years. This product is manufactured using an aramid fiber material which breaks down over time. It is advised that you replace your ballistic armor every 10 years to ensure maximum ballistic integrity.

Advanced Cable & Dial Suspension

The Gen 2 advanced cable & dial system gives you total control over your suspension. Tune in the choke within 1/32" using the easy-turn dial for a snug and precise fit. An easy but decisive pull of the dial releases the lock.

Cool & Comfortable Padding

The ACH helmet pad system is an integral safety feature in any ballistic helmet. Our Gen 2 memory foam pads work double-duty to provide breathability and premium comfort for you, while evenly redistributing the kinetic energy of a threat across the entire surface area of the pads.
