Where are Ballistic Armor Co.® helmets manufactured?
All of our helmets are made to Ballistic Armor Co.® specifications by manufacturing facilities overseas, and independently tested by an NIJ-certified lab in the United States.
> Gen 2 helmets are manufactured in Denmark, a NATO country.
> Gen 1 helmets are manufactured in China.
Unlike many products made in China, our ballistic helmets are produced using American-made raw materials and tested to the same rigorous standards as their Denmark Gen 2 counterparts. As such they are subject to the same 5-year warranty that we offer on our Denmark-made Gen 2 helmets.
I'm currently deployed. Can you ship to an APO?
Yes. Please note that shipping to a military base or U.S. embassy overseas is still considered an export, so it is subject to the same ITAR/EAR constraints as a regular export. However, in most cases it is not a problem shipping to deployed military.
