Description

Features & Specifications

FAST MT (Formally FAST Maritime)
Super High Cut, ballistic shell made of a hybrid composite of carbon, unidirectional polyethylene and woven aramid.
Hybrid composite material yields a shell weight reduction of 42% when compared to the traditional US Army ACH shell, and further reduction of 20% when compared to the FAST XP High Cut Helmet.
Ear cut geometry is 16mm higher than the FAST XP High Cut shell shape, allowing for clearance of larger headset style communications devices.
Dedicated Side Armor and Mandible components are specifically matched with the higher ear cut geometry.
Available with four liner system options.
Includes Ops-Core Helmet Bag.

Suspension and Retention Options

The Lux Liner provides one-piece full coverage impact layer with modular pads, designed for shockwave attenuation. Available in two retention options: Lux Liner with Worm Dial Fitband, Head-Loc 4-Point Chinstrap which features a quick adjustment in a low profile fitband and Lux Liner with H-Nape , Head-Loc 4-Point Chinstrap, a traditional retention system option designed to support heavier NVGs (PVS-15and ANVis-9) worn during rigorous activities.

The EPP pads provide a light-weight multi-impact, ventilated liner using LDV closed-cell comfort foam. Available in two retention options: EPP Pads with Worm Dial Fitband, Head-Loc 4-Point Chinstrap, which features a quick adjustment in a low profile fitband, and EPP Pads with OCC-Dial Fitband, Head-Loc 4-Point Chinstrap with replaceable leather front, nape, and side pads that quickly detach to allow convenient donning and doffing of communication headset with internal headbands.
