Replica MICH Style Helmet in Tan. Made of high quality ABS plastic. It weighs just over 2 pounds. Highly adjustable and chin strap. We are very impressed with this replica. Does not provide any (ballistic) protection, except from a hail of bbs. Paddings are not included.
This Helmet is made of ABS like most other protective headgear. ABS is a lightweight plastic that is very rigid and durable thus making it perfect for Airsoft. What is MICH? MICH stands for "Modular Integrated Communications Helmet." That's Fancy talk saying that the inner pads separating your head from the plastic shell are movable and also removable. Why would you want that? Players use different types of headsets (Communications) for their walkie talkies, and the headset can take place of one of the pads, Which if your pads are set up correctly, should not even phase your comfort. This helmet is in no way meant to stop real firearm ammunition of any sort, but it will sure help against minor head injuries. The pads really do offer pretty decent protection on impact, but of course they are not meant for much more than the common airsoft event. I have banged my head off of just about everything possible out on the field. My helmets all look like I was attacked by a lion.
The inside of the helmet is lined with a few strips of Velcro. The pads just stick right on it, there is no right or wrong way. The only problem I have found is that with the heat, the glue seems to fail easily. The black surface in the hot sun seems to melt the glue a little, causing the Velcro strips to come undone when taking the pads out. Dependant on where you place the pads, it will either raise or sink the helmet on your head, adding to it being one of the most adjustable helmets out there for our sport.
This fine detail would be overlooked by most online viewers. The chin strap is made of a soft nylon strap. It's very smooth and comfortable. It does not burn your chin, and it stays securely in place. For all you men out there, this helmet is nice because you don't have to shave before your airsoft event, it doesn't pull on your whiskers. The straps is very adjustable, and easy to work. It fits very nicely, and when you talk, it does not stop your chin from moving. You can speak just as clear as if you didn't have a helmet on, and this is very important to me being the leader of our team. I am always yelling on the field, and this helmet allows me to do so! I'll leave that up to you as a pro or a con. haha.
Rear Neck/Head Support:
Helmets like to flop around. You can't put a bowl on someones head with a strap and tell them to run around for 8 hours and actually expect it not to move. I've saw some players resolve the issue of a helmet moving by wearing a ballcap backwards underneath the helmet. The bill keeps the back of the helmet supported. With the MICH style straps connecting to the back neck pad, it ensures that the helmet does not slide or bounce around. It locks the helmet down nice and tight, it really does to the job. Personally, I was surprised on how much that little device helped.
This helmet is designed for high mobility situations. Lightweight (especially this one, being for airsoft) and the lower rim of the helmet is raised pretty high to allow for movement even while lying down. The only problem is by doing so, it exposes the lower half of your head and neck. Which in airsoft is not life threatening, but may void a fields policy about not having your ears covered. You may need to wear a balaclava underneath depending on the fields policy. The PASGT style helmets are a bit more bulky, and can really be irritating when you try and turn your head, and it gets snagged on your plate carrier. The MICH helmet has my vote for being very mobile!
