3M™ Ballistic Helmet F70

The 3M™ Ballistic Helmet F70 meets or exceeds all commonly specified Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) requirements for ballistic and bump protection and meets NIJ IIIA ballistic penetration protection standards (tested per NIJ STD 0106.01 / 0108.01). It provides V50 fragmentation protection against 17 grain .22 caliber FSP at greater than 2,750 feet per second (greater than 840 meters per second) when tested in accordance with NATO STANAG 2920.  

The shell is manufactured with advanced Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). The F70 is a mid-cut (full coverage) geometry designed for improved coverage of critical areas compared to conventional (ACH) helmets. 

The F70 helmet comes with reverse dovetail rails that accept common industry accessories. Optional accessories designed for the helmet include ballistic mandible, visor and counterweight. In addition, the helmet works seamlessly with 3M™ PELTOR™ communications and hearing protection solutions.

The innovative no thru-hole design eliminates weak spots in the ballistic shell by removing any thru-holes for the night vision device shroud, retention system and rails. With this state-of-the-art design, bolts can no longer become secondary projectiles during a ballistic event and weight is reduced.

The 3M Ballistic Helmet F70 has been evaluated and determined suitable for the Air Force static line and military free fall operations under the Test Parachute Program (TPP).

The F70 is available in four sizes, ranging from small to extra-large, with weights for the F70 Mid Cut, size SM ~1.75lbs (.79 kgs) to size XL, ~2.09lbs (.95 kgs). It is available in four color options: Black, Green, Brown and Tan.
