Don’t let it go to your head: The best ballistic helmet for your team

Your head is the most important part of your body, which is why EDI manufactures three ballistic helmet models to offer police and military the bullet-proof protection they need. Plus as the manufacturer, EDI is able to offer helmet customizations using a variety of colors, retention systems and padding configurations. Through these customization options, we’ve been able to help police and military forces in over 40 countries around the world procure ballistic helmets that meet their exact specifications.

We’re here to help you select which helmet is right for you! Read on for EDI’s guide to each helmet’s fit and recommend usage scenarios.

The PASGT Model

Pronounced “PAS-GIT”, the PASGT helmet is the traditional ballistic helmet model that has been protecting men and women in serving forces around the world for decades. This helmet has a small “visor” above the head, and offers good ear protection. Popular among military members, the EDI’s PASGT model helmet protects up to level III-A threats. Tried and true, there’s good reason the PASGT model has been EDI’s “classic” ballistic helmet for years.

The MICH Model

With a newer design than the PASGT model, the MICH helmet does away with the small “visor” about the head. The MICH model is compatible with side rails, a gas mask, and a front NVG mount, making it ready for tactical operations. And since the helmet dispenses with the ear protection flaps, users can easily use headphones with it.

For these reasons, users tend to prefer the MICH model over the PASGT model for tactical operations. When close team cooperation and communication is required, the MICH model’s compatibility with side rails and headphones is indispensable. Hence the MICH model is especially popular with police, and with tactical military units around the world seeking to mount night-vision goggles or radios to their helmets via the siderails.

The FAST High-Cut Model

EDI’s latest ballistic helmet model, the FAST offers the user unrivaled mobility. The FAST ballistic helmet includes side rails and front NVG mount for tactical operations. Its high cut makes it particularly easy to integrate devices with these features, without compromising a user’s comfort or mobility.

Unlike the PASGT, the FAST helmet’s shape does not include ear protection flaps. This makes it possible for the user to easily use headphones to stay in communication with their team. Like all of our helmets, the FAST resists up to level III-A threats, and comes in a variety of sizes and colors.
