3M Peltor Ultra-Light-Weight Cut Away Ballistic Marine Crew Helmet

The first multi-use helmet for bump and ballistic operational requirements. Engineered to provide outstanding head protection while reducing weight for improved mobility. Built with similar sizing dimensions to the U.S. Military ACH helmet, the ultra lightweight ballistic helmet has a higher cut, allowing for desired benefits and accessories as used y U.S. and Alliance Special Forces. Modular mounting platforms can be attached without requiring holes in the shell, enabling the use of standard picatinny shelf rails that accept most operational accessories.

The helmet is compatible with hearing protection and Communications systems such as the 3M Peltor COMTAC III, via rail adaptors that allow it to mount directly to the rails. The entire retention system is attached to the ballistic shell using a bolt less design minimizing overall system weight and eliminating the possibility of bolts becoming secondary projectiles.

3M Team Wendy CAM FIT Retention System

The CAM FIT Retention System utilizes cam-lock sliders for one-handed adjustment and secure fit. The Boaî Closure System stabilizes the weight of the helmet by distributing a light, even pressure around the head, similar in feel to a baseball cap. The adjustment straps and chin-cup have been designed for a close, comfortable fit to the wearer's (Note: The CAM FIT Retention System comes standard with the side release buckle on the left side of the face for right eye dominant shooters. The LED option moves the buckle to the right side of the face for left eye dominant shooters.)

All CAM FIT Retention Systems ship complete with ballistic hardware. Included hardware may not be compatible with side rail systems, in these cases original hardware can be used.
