The MICH ballistic Helmet (or ACH) was designed to replace the in service PASGT helmet. The MICH ballistic helmet features a reduced weight, higher cut at the back and sides and removal of the front peak. This new low profile provides excellent compatibility with communications equipment, gas masks and especially helmet mounted night vision goggles.
The helmet is constructed from para aramid material and provides lightweight, robust protection from ballistic and fragmentation projectiles and other low energy threats. A four point harness is anchored to the shell with ballistic resistant bolts. The harness can be easily removed for cleaning or replacement. An optional configuration of the MICH harness system uses a pad system to enhance stability.
Paraclete, part of Point Blank Enterprises Inc., offers a broad range of helmet constructions to suit threat, weight and performance criteria . The MICH Helmet is available to meet NIJ Level II and IIIA as well as bespoke designs to meet specific client needs.
Accessories include ballistic visors, anti fragmentation visors and anti riot visors. Neck protectors. Various harness options and pads systems, helmet covers, carrying bags and badges or insignia.
