Introducing The New Ops-Core Maritime SF Helmet
The IIIA Ops-Core Maritime Helmet is an innovative and advanced solution for head protection in a variety of situations, from law enforcement operations to military missions. It was developed by Ops-Core, a world leader in tactical head protection systems, with the goal of providing superior protection for the user.
The story behind this helmet began when Ops-Core saw the need for improved head protection that could better meet the demands of today’s high-risk environments. The company wanted to develop a helmet that provided maximum impact resistance while also remaining lightweight and comfortable.
To make this vision a reality, Ops-Core designed the shell with an advanced hybrid composite material that combined Carbon fiber, Unidirectional Polyethylene, and woven Aramid fibers. This combination resulted in a shell that was 8% lighter than its predecessor while still providing maximum impact resistance.
In addition to its lightweight design, the high-cut shell geometry offers extended coverage over the rear occipital lobe without interfering with load carriers or other accessories. The ear cut geometry was also 16 mm higher than previous FAST XP High Cut helmets, allowing for larger headsets such as those found in ComTac 5 (V). For even greater weight reduction and stability, there are also High Cut Skeleton Rails that reduce weight by 30%.
The helmet is also equipped with an innovative Modular Bungee Shroud (MBS) which reduces snag hazards and interference while improving NVG retention stability. Plus it’s lined with expanded polypropylene (EPP), offering enhanced impact protection and molded-in vent holes for increased airflow and reduced heat stress.
Overall, this Ops-Core super high-cut helmet provides superior protection against blunt impacts and compression testing that meets all specified standards. Whether you’re engaging in law enforcement operations or military missions, you can be sure your head is protected no matter what situation you may find yourself in. With this revolutionary new design from Ops-Core, you can rest assured knowing your head is secure without sacrificing comfort or mobility.

What materials are used in the construction of the hybrid composite shell of the helmet?
The Ops-Core FAST SF Super High Cut Helmet is constructed with a hybrid composite material that combines Carbon fiber, Unidirectional Polyethylene, and woven Aramid fibers. This combination of materials offers superior impact resistance while also remaining lightweight. Carbon fiber is used in the helmet shell due to its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio; it's extremely lightweight yet offers high levels of protection from impacts.
Unidirectional Polyethylene is used to provide additional reinforcement, as it has excellent tear and tensile strength without adding extra weight. The woven Aramid fibers are also highly versatile, providing an additional layer of reinforcement while remaining lightweight and flexible. Additionally, this combination of materials ensures an even distribution of shock force throughout the shell while protecting against penetration or abrasion forces. This makes the hybrid composite shell highly reliable when it comes to providing superior protection against blunt impacts and compression testing that meets all specified standards.
Can I wear this helmet and a headset at the same time?
Yes, you can wear the Ops-Core SF Helmet and a headset at the same time. The super high-cut design allows for a comfortable and spacious fit for headsets such as ComTacs. Additionally, the helmet features an integrated occipital harness system that provides an adjustable fit for different head sizes and shapes. This ensures that your headset fits comfortably and securely on your head without any sliding or shifting during operations. Furthermore, the helmet is designed to be compatible with most standard aviation headsets, including those made by Bose, David Clark, and Sennheiser.
How much protection against blunt impacts and compression testing does this helmet offer?
The Ops-Core SF Helmet provides superior protection against blunt impacts and compression testing to meet all specified standards. The helmet utilizes a hybrid composite shell composed of lightweight yet strong materials including Unidirectional Polyethylene and woven Aramid fibers. This combination ensures an even distribution of shock force throughout the shell and offers superior protection against penetration or abrasion forces.
Through rigorous testing, it has been proven to absorb high levels of impact energy and conform to defined ANSI Z87+ standards for superior protection against blunt impacts, compression testing, and other forms of mechanical stress. Additionally, this type of helmet can provide a higher level of protection than traditional foam helmets due to its increased rigidity and flexibility which allow it to better absorb the shock from a hard blow.
Is it suitable for use in both law enforcement operations and military missions?
Yes, the Ops-Core SF Helmet is suitable for use in both law enforcement operations and military missions. It's ideal for use in airborne operations or fast roping activities. It's great for both law enforcement personnel who need a reliable helmet for their dangerous duties as well as military personnel who need a lightweight yet strong protective gear item to get them through any mission they may encounter.
