The FAST Combat Helmet from Atomic Defense is an above-the-ear (ATE) high-cut ballistics helmet that offers best-in-class protection. The rounded helmet exterior deflects or absorbs bullets away from the head, while interior padding protects the wearer from the impact force.
We go above and beyond the competitors by subjecting Atomic helmets to extensive testing. While others may test an ATE ballistic helmet with one or two rounds, a single Atomic Defense FAST Combat Helmet is tested to withstand 18+ rounds from various calibers of weapons, including two 44 Magnum shots. Lighter rounds like copper-tip 22-caliber and 9mm hollow-point bullets barely scratch the surface.
Q: How is this helmet different from the competition?
A: This ATE helmet offers IIIA+, aka 3A+ protection. This means that it meets and exceeds the standards you will find on many other helmets. Our helmets are capable of taking multiple strikes, stabbings, shrapnel, etc. Some unique features include; highly adjustable interior padding, rigid exterior, smooth coat interior all-weather paint, NVG mount, 4-way rail system, extra padding that's Velcro adjustable, bungees, leather chin strap, and ratcheting head-capture system to fit almost any head size and shape.
Q: What attachments will this helmet take AND where can I get the ones that are pictured?
A: We didn't want to force customers into some proprietary or non-standard system. So we use the standard rail system and configurations for all our mounts/rails. Standard multi-NVG mount and standard rail system just to name two. This lets you fit all those combat helmet attachments you already have, plus all the after-market ones you might need in the field.

Q: What is the return policy?
A: We are flexible. Please note that should the helmet show any signs of wear on a return, we cannot offer refunds for customer safety. Simply put, don't try to pull a fast one after you take those sweet Instagram pics on your sweaty head. (See our returns and/or warranty section at the bottom of this page for more details)

The helmet is comfortable and fits great if you take you time to pick and choose which set of padding you need to use. The helmet came with a good variety of pads to switch to to get a better fit. Can’t speak to how bulletproof they actually are because I can’t afford to just shoot at this thing but the YouTube video that atomic defense put out on the helmet and all the stuff they shot at it should speak for itself.
I got mine today which I ordered 4 days ago. Very quick delivery, I even got an extra gift with mine :). (Thanks to whoever gave me it).
It's comfortable like 8.9 / 10 And I assume it works pretty well. Hopefully I never have to find out. It's not gonna stop or even deflect rifle caliber rounds. But It's not supposed to. It will however stop shrapnel, the most common battle injury. I was worried about the NVG mount. But it actually works just as good as my 70$ wilcox mount. I'm happy I went with Atomic Defense. Genuine equipment you can trust your life with.
Training with the FAST allowed for easier peripheral viewing of our team shooters on either side. We will order more (especially to ensure our supply closet has backups.)
Sizing is a bit off. My head is 23” (which is middle ground for the two sizes) and the larger size was a bit too big. Seems like nice construction but i wish a size exchange didnt cost a 20% restock fee. Im already balling on a budget as it is
Thanks for the honest review! There are a few options here. You can add in the thinner padding that comes with the helmet and/or move the existing Tan and Black padding into or out of the helmet.
Also, exchanges are free and don't have a restocking cost (unless the item has been damaged, modified, etc.) We will work to make this clearer on the Returns and Exchanges page.
