Ops Core FAST Helmet
Part of what I do sometimes includes having to be embedded with the kind of people that fastrope from helicopters and ran into things (making them go boom). having a helmet in these cases is imperative. So, I went for a non-ballistic helmet that can also be used on a climb expedition or field work.
I tested different brands, but I settled on the Ops Core FAST Base Jump Military Helmet. This helmet is made out of a very lightweight and durable polycarbonate material. With plenty of cushioning inside and cut to allow for hearing protection and commo gear. The night optics mount comes built-in, another good feature. It comes with railing on both sides to mount lights and other gear.
I've worn the helmet over extended periods of times and it's comfortable. It gets a bit hot sometimes, but like all helmets, this is to be expected. It feels less bulky than the PT A-Bravo Half Shell (another good non-ballistic helmet) and the adjustment straps are great. Overall a good investment.
