The 3M™ Combat II Ballistic Helmet L110 is used for protection from handgun bullets, blunt impacts, bomb fragmentation and select small arms projectiles. It is constructed with ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene and advanced ballistic fiber materials. With integrated retention and suspension systems, the L110 helmet is engineered for excellent protection in a wide range of field conditions.
Versatile Protection in a Wide Range of Field Conditions
The 3M™ Combat II Ballistic Helmet L110 helps protect against handgun bullets, blunt impacts, bomb fragmentation and select small arms projectiles, including 7.62 x 51 mm M80 NATO ball projectile with V0 @ 2100 ft/sec (640 m/sec) and V50 ballistic limit value >2460 fps (>750 m/s). The 3M combat II ballistic helmet L110 also provides fragmentation protection against 17 grain .22 cal FSP at >3,281 f/s (>1000 m/s) V50 when tested in accordance to STANAG 2920. The L110 is resistant to penetration against NIJ IIIA threats.
The versatile geometry of the helmet is similar to the U.S. Army Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) and allows for the use of accessories, such as 3M™ PELTOR™ communications systems, eye, ear and respiratory protection. The design of the 3M combat II ballistic helmet L110 includes a trim contour for an extra wide eye-port opening for maximum peripheral vision. The helmet also has a specially-engineered neck trim for providing enhanced coverage without limiting movement when used in tandem with most ballistic vests.
The 3M combat II ballistic helmet L110 uses an integrated retention system built from tubular nylon webbing which is reinforced with double bar tacked stitching in critical areas. In addition, it comes with an adjustable, smooth slide lock system and a padded strap for the nape of the neck which enhances stability for a secure fit. The D30® Trust Helmet Pad System inside the helmet includes one circular crown pad, two trapezoidal pads and four oblong pads which is designed to reduce the force of blunt trauma while wicking away perspiration.
The 3M combat II ballistic helmet L110 is available in four sizes, ranging from small to extra-large. Maximum weight (with three-quarter inch pads and 4 point retention system installed) is as follows: small 2.94 lbs (1.33 kg), medium 3.06 lbs (1.39 kg), large 3.31 lbs (1.50 kg), extra-large 3.88 lbs (1.76 kg). It is available in three color options: Black, Green and Brown.
