The NEXUS ACH Helmet ( Advanced Combat Helmet ) is a newer and lighter version of the US Army’s MITCH (Modular Integrated Tactical Communications Helmet ). Designed as a lighter and more compact version, incorporating protruding ear coverage for Tactical Headsets and comms fits which offers a greater degree of ballistic protection.
The reduced profile ( No Front Peak ) optimises peripheral vision and sensory awareness, with reduced coverage at the rear, which helps when in the prone position.
High ballistic performance with low weight, using high-tenacity ballistic aramid fibre and bound in a Thermoplastic resin matrix.
4 point chin strap harness, with an integrated Crown Mesh with cross straps with plastic chin cup.
SF Helmet has a fully adjustable Harness System.
