Galvion has modernized the traditional Advanced Combat Helmet: Galvion Batlskin Viper P4 High Cut Head Protection System brings this essential equipment in line with today's technological advances in warfighter's equipment. Utilizing cutting-edge, composite, hybridized Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) material, Galvion manufactures the most advanced combat helmet that is up
to 24% lighter than the U.S. Army ACH system, pushing the boundaries of obtainable weight reduction while maintaining superior
ballistic and fragmentation protection. New technologies, innovative materials and process combine to engineer the ultimate, the Galvion Batlskin Viper P4 High Cut Head Protection System.
The Batlskin Viper P4 High Cut Head Protection System is the foundation for all Batlskin® modular components, including the Front Mount, Rails, Mandible Guard and Visor. Helmets are available in a full range of cuts (full, mid and high), sizes (small to x-large) and colors. They come standard with one NVG hole and the Modular Suspension System.
Batlskin Viper P4 Design
The Batlskin Viper P4 High Cut Head Protection System features a low profile design for enhanced comfort and is compatible with all NVG's, CBRN Gear, and Communications Devices. It is tested for ballistic performance at temperatures from -40°F to 158°F. The Viper P4 comes with a standard issue suspension chin strap and moveable 0.75" (#6) pads for a custom fit.
Here are some things to consider when ordering a Ballistic Helmet. Will you be wearing COMs equipment in conjunction with your helmet? If so, you should measure your head for fit with the COMs headset on. If you are right on the fence between a "Medium" and a "Large" shell, we recommend going with the Large. Take it from us: your head will thank you.
Batlskin Viper P4 System
You should also consider what type of night vision mounting system you will be attaching to your Batlskin Viper P4 High Cut Head Protection System. There are two types: Standard One-Hole Mounts and Standard Three-Hole Mounts (MARSOC/ WARCOM pattern). You will want to order your helmet pre-drilled with the pattern required for your mount. We do not recommend drilling your helmet to attach a night vision mount. Not only do you risk drilling the holes in the wrong position, but you also compromise the sealant finish on your helmet. At the factory, the helmet shell is drilled before it is sprayed with the finish. This insures the holes are sealed. By drilling through this finish, you expose the Kevlar fibers to the elements. Moisture will get in there and cause the Kevlar layers to separate over time.
