Product Testimonial

testimonials from the field

SSgt P.D., USAF

I would say we invest in the Caiman Ballistic System if Ops-Core doesn’t update their padding and liner retention system. While wearing the gas mask and Peltors together with the Caiman, I was more comfortable than wearing the Ops-Core with just Peltors…The sleekness of the Galvion liner retention system and comfort of the pads was the best part of the helmet. I could wear the helmet system for 8+ hours and not complain about it. The Ops-Core leaves me with excruciating pain after about 6 hours of wearing.

BMCS M.G., NECC Coastal Riverine

My guys brought in headsets to wear test with the Batlskin Caiman Ballistic Helmets. They tried the helmet with the Peltor COMTAC III and TCI Liberator II headsets. Both headsets fit comfortably under the Caiman helmet with no range of motion restrictions or impingement's from the helmet to headset. The Caiman helmet is a much lighter than the older helmet style we are currently using and streamlined design reduce fatigue. With the integrated Velcro pads and ARC rail on the helmet, adding Velcro counterweight pouches, mounting cameras, strobe lights and NVD's is easier. The Caiman Ballistic Helmet is an excellent choice to transition to.
