Exactly what I was expecting the helmet to be.


Shipping was good, the product itself was as ordered. My NVG mount is already set up, and a helmet light and comms will be as easy to do, too. Forgot what wearing these were like, but the addt'l padding provided should help!

Great fit!

I received the helmet quickly after I ordered and it was exactly as ordered. Although hoping to never subject it to an unscheduled ballistic test, I have every confidence in this Hard Head Veterans product.

Awesome helmet so far. Better than anything I was ever issued. The adjustment buckles are a nice touch. I can easily adjust all points without having to take off my helmet .

Proper Fit


  • Start by wrapping a measuring tape around the circumference of your head, just above your ears and eyebrows. Where the tape overlaps is your measurement.
  • No measuring tape? No problem! Use a piece of string to mark the overlap, then measure the string.
  • Use the size chart to find where your optimal tactical helmet size should be.
  • Also, don't worry if you choose the wrong size. We offer an easy exchange policy!
