The FAST Combat Helmet from Atomic Defense is an above-the-ear (ATE) high-cut ballistics helmet that offers best-in-class protection. The rounded helmet exterior deflects or absorbs bullets away from the head, while interior padding protects the wearer from the impact force. 

We go above and beyond the competitors by subjecting Atomic helmets to extensive testing. While others may test an ATE ballistic helmet with one or two rounds, a single Atomic Defense FAST Combat Helmet is tested to withstand 18+ rounds from various calibers of weapons, including two 44 Magnum shots. Lighter rounds like copper-tip 22-caliber and 9mm hollow-point bullets barely scratch the surface.

  • Can stop the same ammunition as a level 3A+ police or military vest. (.44 Magnum, 9mm, .45 cal, .40 cal, 38, 12 gauge slug, buckshot, and many more!)

    Q: How is this helmet different from the competition?

    A: This ATE helmet offers IIIA+, aka 3A+ protection.  This means that it meets and exceeds the standards you will find on many other helmets.  Our helmets are capable of taking multiple strikes, stabbings, shrapnel, etc.  Some unique features include; highly adjustable interior padding, rigid exterior, smooth coat interior all-weather paint, NVG mount, 4-way rail system, extra padding that's Velcro adjustable, bungees, leather chin strap, and ratcheting head-capture system to fit almost any head size and shape.

    Q: What attachments will this helmet take AND where can I get the ones that are pictured?

    A: We didn't want to force customers into some proprietary or non-standard system. So we use the standard rail system and configurations for all our mounts/rails.  Standard multi-NVG mount and standard rail system just to name two.  This lets you fit all those combat helmet attachments you already have, plus all the after-market ones you might need in the field.
