Tactical Helmet ATE® Bump

Out of Stock, Backorders Ship in 4-8 Weeks

Tactical Helmet ATE Bump is the non-ballistic version of our ATE Ballistic helmet. Lightweight and modular, it provides the ideal bump helmet for Tactical Helmet applications, Search and Rescue (SAR), and Recreational Sports. This lightweight helmet weighs in at 1.4 lbs! Manufactured from a Polycarbonate blend the helmet offers blunt impact protection that far exceeds impact requirements not only for EN 1385: 2012, but also for AR/PD 10-02.

The tactical helmet is an essential piece of equipment for military members, law enforcement officers who are attempting to suppress a riot or others who need reliable head protection. While most helmets may look alike, they don't all perform the same.

The choice typically comes down to deciding whether a ballistic or bump helmet is the better solution. The former is designed to stop bullets, while the latter offers protection against falling debris, impact with objects and blunt force trauma.

Tactical Helmet ATE® Bump

Emerson H.
Different systems for different jobs

I'm going to start by saying I liked the helmet, but it wasn't right for what I wanted to do with it, it's a light and comfortable helmet and I had no problem doing several hours and miles of hiking with it on.

However, it really starts to fall behind the competition when you start mounting things. With a plain helmet the simple strap system works well, but once you add the weight of nvgs, a counter weight, iff illumination, ear protection and all the mounting systems that go with the helmet straps just don't keep it in place well enough, trying to jog, jump, or move around over time shifted the helmet and as result the eyebox of the nvgs. This problem continued no matter how I adjusted it or what pad configuration I had

Additionally while I actually like the hhv earpro mounts as much as the unity mark system the helmet rails they mount to are a pain and don't feel super solid when you take off tge ears and try to rotate them up

Ultimately I think if you don't want to mount stuff to your bump, or maybe just things like a light this is a good helmet, I ended up giving it to a buddy who is using it without nvgs and likes it, but if you want to mount alot of things I'd look at a team wendy exfil the BOA system keeps the helmet in place better and the rails feel more sturdy

Hi Emerson, thank you for the in-depth review. We really appreciate these ones. One thing that would of really helped with keeping the helmet secure when adding additional weight is our snap-back-retention system. This is a patented system, that gives the same adjustment as a dial type system, but without all the extra bulk and failure points.

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!

Helmet Sizes

If You Are Between Helmet Sizes, Choose The Larger Size. Every head is different, so we include two different size pad sets for you to achieve the ideal fit.
