The Revision Batlskin Head Protection System is more than a helmet, as is a fully integrated system that protects the face as well as the top of the head.
The system uses a ballistic helmet shell with a “trauma liner” that is designed to reduce incidents of traumatic brain injury (TBI) from explosions. Revision states the helmet shell is also 20% lighter than competitors while offering an increased level of ballistic protection.
According to Revision, both the visor and mandible guard offer impact and ballistic protection while remaining easy to put on and take off. The visor is considered to offer flawless optical clarity and is compatible with night vision gear. It is also scratch resistant (it better be!)
Revision states the helmet and system is one-hand adjustable and is extremely stable with night vision equipment attached.
The Batlskin was obviously designed for the military, but it also can fit the needs of a SWAT team. Getting shot in the face is just as devastating in a hostage rescue attempt as it is in the Hindu Kush mountains.
