AR500  Protector Helmet

Protect yourself from blunt force trauma, blast debris, and incoming rounds with the Protector Helmet: Rated to stop Level IIIA threats, the Protector will defeat all handgun rounds across its full head, ears, and back of neck coverage. Yet this also comes with a good wearing experience with a low weight of 3 pounds and an adjustable under-the-chin suspension system.


The Protector Helmet has been newly reimagined for stronger performance and a consistent look with the rest of our armor. For a full coverage loadout, add this piece of armor to your setup.

This helmet provides multi-hit protection against all handgun threats and is tested in accordance with NIJ 0106.01 standards with .44 magnum rounds.* It is principally made of an integrated formation of aramid fiber, placed under high heat and pressure. This material is popular for lightweight armor for its high strength and is especially resilient in extreme temperatures. 

The outer surface of the helmet shell is coated in a matte finish with a walnut powder texture, while the helmet edge is covered by low-friction rubber. It features a boltless retention system. Full head, ears, and back of neck protection.

Unlike the old Protector design, this version comes in the classic PASGT shape with a lip on the front edge. For user comfort, the helmet also comes with an adjustable suspension system. 

*The tests were conducted with .44 mag (an NIJ 0101.06 IIIA threat) but otherwise followed the procedure of the NIJ 0106.01 (shot placement, BFD methods, etc.).
