Revision BATLSKIN Viper A1 ACH/MICH - Mid Cut
Standard Issue NIJ Level IIIA Ballistic Aramid Helmet
Revision acquired MSA’s ballistic helmet production facilities and has taken over manufacture of the ACH/MICH helmet line under their BATLSKIN brand. The legacy TC-Series is now re-branded as “Viper A1,” and retains all the same quality and materials as the battle-proven original ACH/MICH that has been standard issue to U.S. Warfighters since the beginning of the Global War on Terror.
Revision’s BATLSKIN® ARAMID HELMET, built in the ACH shape and to exacting military and NIJ IIIA specifications, delivers ballistic and impact head protection. Manufactured to meet stringent quality standards, this helmet exceeds U.S. Army specifications for Fragmentation, Resistance to Penetration and Backface Transient Deformation. The Aramid Helmet is the foundation for all Batlskin modular components, including the Front Mount, Mandible Guard and Visor.
The Viper A1 series features a low profile design for enhanced comfort and is compatible with all NVG’s, CBRN Gear, and Communications Devices. It is tested for ballistic performance at temperatures from -40°F to 158°F. The Viper A1 comes with a standard issue suspension chin strap and moveable 0.75″ (#6) pads for a custom fit.
Here are some things to consider when ordering a Ballistic Helmet. Will you be wearing COMs equipment in conjunction with your helmet? If so, you should measure your head for fit with the COMs headset on. If you are right on the fence between a “Medium” and a “Large” shell, we recommend going with the Large. Take it from us: your head will thank you.
You should also consider what type of night vision mounting system you will be attaching to your helmet. There are two types: Standard One-Hole Mounts and Standard Three-Hole Mounts (MARSOC/ WARCOM pattern). You will want to order your helmet pre-drilled with the pattern required for your mount. We do not recommend drilling your helmet to attach a night vision mount. Not only do you risk drilling the holes in the wrong position, but you also compromise the sealant finish on your helmet. At the factory, the helmet shell is drilled before it is sprayed with the finish. This insures the holes are sealed. By drilling through this finish, you expose the Kevlar fibers to the elements. Moisture will get in there and cause the Kevlar layers to separate over time.
