3M™ Ballistic Helmet F70 HC far exceeds conventional (ACH) ballistic helmet specifications in performance and weight. This configurable helmet is designed for broad use, including military, special forces and law enforcement operations. Its no thru-hole design that mounts the NVG shroud, retention and rails increases the shell’s effective protection area and eliminates bolts becoming secondary projectiles.

Integrated Design for Flexibility of Use in a Broad Range of Threat Environments
The 3M™ Ballistic Helmet F70 HC meets or exceeds all commonly specified Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) requirements for ballistic and bump protection and meets NIJ IIIA ballistic penetration protection standards (tested per NIJ STD 0106.01 / 0108.01). It provides V50 fragmentation protection against 17 grain .22 caliber FSP at greater than 2,750 feet per second (greater than 840 meters per second) when tested in accordance with NATO STANAG 2920.

The shell is manufactured with advanced Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). The F70 HC is a tactical high cut design. The ballistic shell weight is 770 grams (1.7 pounds).

The F70 HC helmet comes with reverse dovetail rails that accept common industry accessories. Optional accessories designed for the helmet include ballistic mandible, visor and counterweight. In addition, the helmet works seamlessly with 3M™ PELTOR™ communications and hearing protection solutions.

The innovative no thru-hole design eliminates weak spots in the ballistic shell by removing any thru-holes for the night vision device shroud, retention system and rails. With this state-of-the-art design, bolts can no longer become secondary projectiles during a ballistic event and weight is reduced.

The 3M Ballistic Helmet F70 HC has been evaluated and determined suitable for the Air Force static line and military free fall operations under the Test Parachute Program (TPP).

The F70 is available in four sizes, ranging from small to extra-large, with weights for the F70 High Cut, size SM ~1.52 lbs (.69 kgs) to size XL, ~1.85 lbs (.84 kgs). It is available in four color options: Black, Green, Brown and Tan.
