The N49 ULW Level III Hi-Cut Fast Ballistic Helmet provides ballistic protection at the weight and comfort of a bump helmet. The advanced design has boltless retention, available in the dial, or x-back as well as no thru-bolt rails which provide consistent ballistic protection from the shell. Designed with (UHMWPE) ballistic material at a shell weight of just over 1 pound while featuring ballistic and blunt impact protection. The N49 comes standard with NVG mount, rails, bungees, exterior loop set, and Safe Stealth suspension. The comfort and wearability afforded by the lightweight are paired with the high-cut design to allow easy integration with communication, hearing protection, gas masks, and goggles.

NIJ LEVEL TEST RESULTS
All Helmerbro helmets are tested to NIJ standards. And because we take your protection seriously, we do our own testing too. Every helmet from every batch is hand-inspected for quality, and a random helmet is selected for field testing. If we don't trust it, we won't sell it.
