Its innovative, lightweight design resists penetration of up to a 7.62x39mm lead core round and protects against Level IIIA / HG2 Handgun projectiles and frag, at a weight of 2.81 lbs (Large). The FAST XR integrates into Ops-Core’s total head-borne system solutions which include situational awareness, optics, and respiratory protection.

XR Helmet Features & Specifications:

  • Lightweight design capable of resisting a 7.62x39mm lead core projectile.
  • High-cut, ballistic shell made of a hybrid composite of the most advanced carbon, unidirectional polyethylene, and woven Aramid.
