    A dedicated thread to discuss about tactical equipment which doesn't come under the Indian military's procurement projects (otherwise it would go to the F-INSAS thread). Information about tactical/combat gear in general (not weapons), of any country can be posted here.

    Starting off:

    ProTech Delta X ultra-lightweight ballistic helmet

    Points which attracted my attention:

    • Extremely light weight (light than OpsCore FAST? Haven't verified yet), but doesn't compromise on functionality
    • Epoxy resin used to attach side-rails, no holes drilled into shell there (although NV mount still has bolts)
    • Shell weight only only 0.6 kgs. Even with NV shroud, rails & pads it's still less than 1 kg.



    @Abingdonboy @randomradio @PARIKRAMA @Agent_47 @Hellfire

    ProTech (under Safariland Group) has a range of bolt-free helmet shells on offer (much like MKU), but I haven't found any MACS-equivalent adapter system to do away with NV shroud bolts.
