The majority of tactical helmet users fall into these two categories:
- They take the time and effort to properly maintain their helmet
- Or they neglect it and then complain when their ballistic helmet doesn't function properly.
But you're probably wondering:
"What are the best ways to take care of my kevlar helmet?"
Well, the best ways are to follow the manual or documentation that came with your kevlar helmet! The following information is a guide and what we suggest for our helmets here at Hard Head Veterans!
Kevlar Helmet Shell
Suspension System (Pads)
Helmet Accessories (Shroud & Rails)

What's that age-old saying we have all heard?
"Take care of your gear and it will take care of you"!
As much as you might get tired of that saying, it holds true. Kevlar helmets don't require a ton of maintenance and upkeep if you simply take a small amount of time to follow the manufactures instructions. Doing so will ensure the tactical helmet performs as intended, in that moment you need it the most.
