The ability to communicate effectively is paramount in many military operations. The Modular Integrated Communications Helmet (MICH) can be a lifesaver during intense combat situations. The United States Army Soldier Systems Center developed the MICH helmet two decades ago to be the next generation in military headgear. They've since gained widespread use by other service branches.
The MICH is a helmet that can stop handgun rounds and offer reliable protection against shrapnel and falling debris. The low-cut design provides better coverage for the side of the head than an above-the-ear (ATE) model. These helmets also feature a lip by the ear to accommodate headsets and other communications devices.
MICH Helmet NIJ Level IIIA Ballistic Helmet with Below The Ear. The HHV BTE® Ballistic Helmet has become the standard for Military, Law Enforcement, and Security Personnel.
The BTE® Ballistic Helmet shell is pressed with with ballistic fibers from Dupont®(USA) or Teijin®(Netherlands), overseas in China. Providing best-in-class protection at an affordable price.

We reached out about ordering 13 helmets for our RTF teams. The customer service team answered all of our questions in a timely manner. We also received a timely quote and had no issues placing the order. We received our helmets and are very happy with the product. Helmets seem significantly lighter and have double the shelf life as our old helmets. Would highly recommend.
Helmets awesome, but these guys email you like 4 times a day. Like for real, I expected better from a veteran owned company. Get out of my inbox.
No amount of insurance or warranty coverage can replace your brain. In the hopes that this helmet is never needed and it is there just in case, I can have peace of mind whether or not there is peace elsewhere. Thank you for helping protect what is most dear to me.

Similar in design to the standard army ach, MICH helmets were originally used by US special operations forces to help accommodate helmet headsets and to replace the aging PASGT type helmets. Sometimes referred to as a mich 2001 or another number, the abbreviation stands for Modular Integrated Communications Helmet.
Our BTE or MICH helmet is also referred to as an ech helmet or enhanced combat helmet due to the advanced fiber makeup of the shell which provides additional protection at less weight than original legacy MICH helmets issued to the military. It also works in conjunction with our Up-Armor plates that make it a true solution to rifle threats. Many companies may claim their ech helmets for sale in a monolithic design defeat rifle threats, but if you look closely at the testing data you will typically see this is only for very specific rounds at reduced velocities.
The HHV BTE® Ballistic Helmet not only provides crucial full protection against blunt, ballistic and other threats it's also highly modular and comfortable as well. Its key features include two-way adjustable rear support and adjustable chin strap, and re-positionable Slow Rebound Memory Foam padding that keeps the helmet snug and prevents fatigue and hot spots. It’s available in tan, black, and OD green, and we also offer white and red matte for bulk fire and EMS purchases.
When it comes to ensuring a tactical helmet performs there are no shortcuts. There is more than a simple resistance to penetration test, and they are best performed in a laboratory. Military helmets worn by our troops must pass a strenuous string of lab tests before a contract is even awarded. We use these same tests for the baseline of our helmets, then meet and exceed them. Any tactical ballistic helmet you ever consider purchasing should at the very least have satisfactory RTP (Resistance To Penetration), BTD (commonly referred to as Backface Deformation), V50, and Blunt Impact test data for review upon request from the manufacturer. We like to go a step further and publish this information directly on our website for review!
Is defined as the average of an equal number of highest partial penetration velocities and the lowest complete penetration velocities which occur within a specified velocity spread. In simple terms, you are testing the ballistic limits of the tactical helmet.
Helmet BFD is measured by the non-perforating ballistic impacts from RTP testing. It is defined as the maximum depth in the post-impact clay surface at the predetermined impact location as measured from the original clay surface.
Helmet blunt impact testing is designed to measure the protection against realistic blunt impact threats including falls, parachute drops, and motor vehicle crashes.
If MICH helmets offer the best protective solution for your organization, Hard Head Veterans can provide the right gear for your needs. Our BTE (below the ear) product has become the standard for the military, law enforcement and security personnel. This revolutionary helmet features a tough DuPont Kevlar shell that offers superior head protection. And at a weight of only 2.6 to 3.3 pounds, it ensures you'll experience maximum freedom of movement and comfort while in the field.
This product also qualifies as an enhanced combat helmet (ECH) when used with our up-armor plates for true rifle threat protection
Users want to know that their helmets will keep them safe when it matters the most. Our MICH helmets check all the boxes regarding the relevant testing requirements in critical areas such as ballistic, impact, fragment and blunt impact performance. While other manufacturers may claim that their helmets will defeat threats, HHV has the testing data to back it up. You can trust that your headgear will respond to the challenge during the most extreme combat conditions.
At HHV, we believe that a helmet must be comfortable and fit correctly. We've installed Slow Rebound Memory Foam padding in our MICH helmet that eliminates hot spots and prevents fatigue during periods of extended wear. It also allows the wearer to reposition it as conditions change. Other built-in comfort features include an adjustable rear support and chin strap.
Speaking of fit, we offer this MICH Kevlar helmet in multiple sizes, ensuring you can find the right match for your head. If you're not sure whether a small, medium, large or large/extra-large is right for you, the guidelines in the sizing chart below can help. You can either use your hat size or head circumference (when measured around the temples and above the ears) when making your choice.
If your measurement falls in between two sizes, we recommend using the higher figure. We also allow you to exchange an improperly fitting helmet if needed.
We offer our MICH helmets in several colors to ensure your headgear meets your unique operational and environmental requirements. Select from tan, black and olive drab green. Red matte and white are also available for EMS and bulk fire purchases.
