The NIJ IIIA class helmet has proprietary side rails and optoelectronics socket developed by American Wilcox company. The new model of the socket was lightened by 35%, when compared to last year’s version. The side rails are 25% lighter and allow for fitment of additional equipment such as Team Wendy visor or the face protection. The visor weights 158-162 g, depending on size. The visor’s transparent material is made by the ESS company and fulfills the MCEP standards for strike and shrapnel protection.
The face protection is available in the ballistic version which weights 590 g and in non-ballistic version which weights 320 g. Both versions come with either ventilated or ballistic nose part. Material’s flexibility enables the wearer to aim rifles/carabines quite comfortably. All elements are available in black, Coyote Brown, and Ranger Green.
