FAST Helmet

Hardcore Defense is proud to offer robust and quality helmets in a variety of sizes and colors. Currently being used by their thousands in Ukraine and now Israel, these classic and combat proven designs are the perfect way to complete your kit.
See below for specifications, features, and shipping information.

The FAST helmet ("Future Assault Shell Technology") is our top-of-the-line ballistic helmet, designed for use by modern tactical operators.  Compared to the PASGT and MICH helmets the sides are cut higher to reduce weight, improve situational awareness, and for compatibility with helmet mounted comm systems, while the back is slightly lower to improve rear protection and help balance the weight of attached accessories.  The FAST helmet also features an adjustable suspension system for an optimized individual fit.
