Superhero movies have probably raised the bar for helmet standards – Ironman is right up there as the primary model for really cool, well-made full-protection gear. Various companies have come up with helmet prototypes, becoming more and more advanced with regards to materials and features.
The Devtac Ronin Kevlar Level IIIA Tactical Ballistic Helmet is one such invention. Level IIIA is the highest level possible in soft body armor, and the helmet has the ability to stop bullets up to .357 SIG and .44 Magnum. From the widely popular Ronin Airsoft helmets, these ballistic helmets are a great improvement and can be used for actual tactical situations. The basic airsoft helmet design was preserved in these new helmets, with several upgrades to make them more resistant to real-life attacks.
Devtac Designs got the attention of Armor Wear with this new helmet concept. Armor Wear uses carbon nanotubes in their products to make them lightweight. While there is no confirmation that carbon nanotubes will be employed in these helmets, it would make sense to employ them.
The Ronin Ballistic Helmet provides up to 70% ballistic protection, and has Neodymium N52 magnets that allow the wearer to remove the cheek plates for rifle shooting. This is especially useful for situations when the wearer has to shoot with another person’s rifle or shotgun. The helmet has ventilation that prevents lenses from fogging up, with the help of a built-in fan.
The Ronin Ballistic Helmet is currently being marketed to SWAT teams and other military units, but can also be used by riot police forces and in other scenarios that may require head protection. The helmet is also good for civilian use as general protection. The helmet looks incredible and provides a great range of view, and is being marketed at affordable prices.
