Galvion is well known for its quality products and the Caiman Hybrid is a very high quality and versatile piece of equipment. The detachable ballistic appliques are lightweight, durable, thin, and easily pack-able when not required… Both the hybrid helmet and the appliques are covered with high quality Velcro that adds versatility and is very durable.
