The Militia Helmet

Military units and law enforcement agencies can afford to replace their aramid and polyethylene ballistic helmets as they reach the end of their 5-10 year “shelf life,” but the average consumer doesn’t have that kind of budget.

So how does the free man get long-lasting protection that won’t break the bank? 

We’re glad you asked. Introducing the AR500 Armor® Militia steel helmet.

Modern engineering and materials mean steel helmets can offer the same protection levels as composite helmets for similar weight and size. But unlike aramid and polyethylene helmets, steel offers protection right up to the rim. 

Why is this important? Because on the streets and in the field, not all shots are fair.

When we compared it to one of the top-of-the-line composite helmets, the Militia offered:

  • Threat Rating is VPAM 3
  • Stops .357 Magnum, and lesser rounds, at 1300 fps and below
  • Better protection
  • Thinner profile
  • Rim-to-rim protection
  • Negligible weight difference
  • One-third the price

This helmet is part of a modular system that allows the user to add an upcoming NVG mount, side rails, rifle up-armor kit, and quick-adjust dial lock suspension system.

 Armor is a balance of protection level, weight, and cost. The advanced metallurgy in our Militia ballistic helmet offers the best combination of these elements.


Protection Level:  

  • European VPAM-3 compliant
  • ACH Gen II ballistic compliant
  • Excellent blunt force and impact performance
  • Protection all the way to the rim

Upcoming Features:

  • NVG mount
  • Side rails
  • Level IV up-armor kit
  • Quick-adjust dial lock suspension

Approximate Weight:

  • 3.0 lb. with large pads

Looks Awesome/Needs Attachment points Review by Brian
The Helmet looks really good, and the Price point is amazing. But it needs Attachment points for Ear pro and maybe for Nightvision. Do that and it will get 5 STARS all day long (Posted on 12/5/2019)
