Ballistic Helmets - PASGT and MICH Helmets - The Differences Explained

As modern weaponry has advanced over the decades, the need to improve the protection that soldiers wear into battle has required advancement as well. Although the helmet is one of the oldest forms of personal security in the world, modern versions such as the PASGT helmet and the MICH helmet have changed so dramatically that an ancient Roman soldier wouldn't be able to recognize them.

Since World War I, the dramatic advancements in technology have seen new and even deadlier weapons introduced to the battlefield. In the interest of protecting the soldiers who defend freedom around the world, new and ever more advanced helmet options have been created.


Ballistic Helmet Stylistic Differences


The Spectra design was one of the first modern helmets. Created specifically to protect the wearer's head from impacts by shrapnel, it is not by itself a bulletproof material. It is, however, where all modern bulletproof helmets have their beginnings. Originally used by the United Nations peacekeeping forces, they were traditionally painted sky blue and had little accessory options.

From these humble roots sprang the most modern styles of ballistics helmets. The Personnel Armor System For Ground Troops helmet lovingly called the PASGT helmet by most, is a Kevlar and Spectra composite construction that traditionally has 19 separate layers of bullet protection. The PASGT helmet has a level IIIA protection rating against both shrapnel and ballistics. It is designed to cover the wearer's ears partially.

The Modular Integrated Communications Helmet, commonly called the MICH helmet, was the next step in helmet design. It is typically constructed from Kevlar and assigned a level IIIA protection rating. The MICH helmet is specifically designed to withstand the 9mm and 44 MAG bullets, as well as blunt force attacks. It provides a little more room around the wearer's ears for communications devices to be used with it. Original design specifications included a brim and a lower cut, but modern styles have done away with these for a smoother, more comfortable to wear user experience.

The most modern ballistics helmets are designed to go around the ears, providing protection to the back of the head but not blocking the soldier's ability to hear. Typically helmets are constructed from Aramid, PE, or carbon fiber composites, but hybrid options are available if the user prefers. They are light in weight and offer all of the spacial awareness that the modern defender needs due to its reduced profile construction.

Ballistic Helmet Padding And Strapping Systems -

The PASGT helmet has a series of 7 customizable padding straps along the interior, including the top of the helmet and a full circle of padding inside. The straps come down on either side of the ear and secure around the chin with a protective cup, and feature a sweatband on the interior of the unit.

The MICH Ballistic Helmet offers the wearer a seven-pad customizable system for comfort while in use. The strapping system is a four-point design, attaching in front of the ears and the back of the head. A padding area prevents the straps from irritating the end of the neck. It snaps in place under the chin, rather than relying on the button for support.

Modern ballistics helmet styles feature a fully integrated padding system on the interior, designed to cushion the wearer's head against any blows received. Extra cushioning is provided around the ears and the back of the head, providing additional protection in these critical areas.

Ballistic Helmet Mounts And Accessories

The PASGT helmet is designed to be worn with visors, face shields, and gas masks, but feature no universal snap-on mounts in the original design. The modern design is used mostly for peacekeeping and law enforcement agencies.

The MICH helmet is designed to be compatible with all types of gas masks currently on the market. It features standard NVG mounting options for the VAS Universal Shroud, along with one hole, two holes, and three hole mounting equipment.

Modern ballistic helmets feature a full attachment array for the professional to use in the field. The common Picatinny rail over either ear provides fully adjustable mounting options for the soldier. An entirely universal NVG mount on the helmet's front is another standard option for additional mounting options.
