*******************************************************************************************************
The protection class of all helmets is NIJ IIIA. This means, the helmet usually protects
against shrapnels and ammunition 9 mm / .44 Magnum.
All helmets fulfill the NATO-Standard STANAG 2920.

These helmets are made to protect against shrapnels from bombs, grenades, Artillery and
and all types of metal, glass and concrete parts that fly around after an attack.

All normal combat helmets do not give protection against a hit with rifle ammunition.
Therefore, you would need a class NIJ IV helmet, which has a weight of ca. 10 Kg and
is hardly available.
If anyone tells you that a normal combat helmet protects you against rifle ammunition,
he does not tell you the truth.

We carry out shooting tests with all kinds of weapons and ammunition types to test our helmets.
I only sell helmets of which I know exactly what they can stand.
As a former soldier and still active member of the Army Reserve I will never sell items
of which I am not convinced and which I have not tested by myself.

The following pictures show well, what protection class NIJ IIIA means.

The protection classes above IIIA are mainly relevant for ballistic vests.
These vests contain heavy and thick ballistic plates.


This overview shows you, against which ammunition types class IIIA protects you.

Results from own shooting tests:

Shooting with buckshot ammunition, pellet size 3 mm, distance 25 m, simulation as shrapnels

Result:
The pellets enter the helmet into the outer aramid layers and are stopped after a few
millimeters or very few centimeters. You can feel the pellets from the outside.
The inside of the helmet is absolutely undamaged, not even the smallest bulge is visible.


Shooting with 9 x 19 mm ammunition (Machine Pistol), distance 25 m

Result:
Shot 1 enters into the helmets and moves between the aramid layers about 6 cm far.
The round stays in the helmet, it did not have enough energy to leave the helmet again.
The helmet has a crack at the outer layer of about 1 cm.
The inside of the helmet has a bulge, approximately 7,5 cm large, maximum thickness about 2 cm.

Shot 2 enters into the helmet, moves between the aramid layers about 6 cm far and
then leaves the helmet again. The aramid material is clearly visible.
The inside of the helmet has a relatively small bulge of about 4 x 7 cm, maximum thickness about 1 cm.

It is surprising that the entrance holes into the helmets are very small.
The bulges inside of the helmets are pretty soft, since these are the aramid layers.

(The hole in the center of the helmet was the hole for holding the helmet on the test device.)

The offical test at the government proof office is in preparation, the test certificate is planned for June/July.
and will be published here.

Sometimes people ask me, why my prices are 100,- to 150,- lower per helmet than at some other sellers.
My answer: because other dealers want to earn 100,- to 150,- more per helmet. ;-)
My aim is to supply you with great helmets at a good, fair price! There is nobody else between the factory and me.
That is also the reason why I can fulfill special requests within a few days.
