Diamond Age NeoSteel Tactical Helmet Accessories Now Available

Diamond Age NeoSteel Helmet and Accessories

McKinney, Texas (Ammoland.com) – Texas-based, materials science and ballistics specialists, Diamond Age, unveiled the next generation steel NeoSteel™ Helmet in August, and now offer the first two helmet accessories, designed specifically for the NeoSteel Helmet.

The NeoSteel Helmet is a modular combat helmet produced using the most technologically advanced metal alloys resulting in a helmet that meets and exceeds VPAM-3 + Special Threats ballistic requirements. The design is based on the combat-proven M1 steel-pot helmet and is the evolutionary descendant featuring all-day comfort, balance, protection, and unlike the current K-pot polymer produced helmets today, will not degrade over time and weaken its protective capabilities.

The first two NeoSteel Helmet accessories available are the Combat Circlet and the Face Protector. The Combat Circlet is the ideal mounting platform for night vision gear (NVGs) and other head-worn accessories. Made from durable, glass-filled polymer and using the most advanced additive manufacturing techniques it is securely mounted to the NeoSteel Helmet by four retention-system holes on the helmet. The NVG bracket requires no additional drilling of holes into the front of the helmet and provides bungee cord ports for stabilization and retention. The M-LOK side rails accept accessories directly and can also be used as a platform for Picatinny adapters. The Combat Circlet’s vertical crest allows for additional stability and more accessory-mounting real estate. Future modules in development for the crest include applique blast protection and an applique ghillie module. The rear of the Combat Circlet features a tie-down bar for additional stability without using a counterweight. The Combat Circlet also allows for direct integration with the NeoSteel Helmet Face Protector.

Diamond Age NeoSteel Helmet Ventail

The NeoSteel Ventail face protector offers the wearer an enhanced protection platform from ballistic threats. It covers the face, side of the head, and a portion of the anterior neck. It mounts easily and quickly to the helmet using the four retention system holes on the shell and protects from blunt impact, blast overpressure, and debris. The Ventail is also fully compatible with most ballistic glasses and offers an unconstrained field-of-view while being lighter in weight and tougher than traditional transparent ballistic visors.

“Unlike the composite helmets on the market today, the NeoSteel Helmet will serve the warfighter or LEO for years to come. Advances in steel technologies now enable a helmet that performs better than Kevlar or polyethylene composite helmets in many respects,” Diamond Age CEO, Jake Ganor, commented. “And a big plus for the wearer is that the helmet shell is largely incapable of deformation, so there’s a greatly reduced risk of behind helmet head trauma.”

For agencies concerned with “behind armor trauma,” in which the LEO or warfighter suffers from neck injuries due to the head acceleration from a ballistic hit, the NeoSteel Helmet spreads the kinetic energy load across the entire padding system protecting from any blunt impact injuries. Only the NeoSteel Helmet gives the wearer edge-to-edge protection with over 110 square inches of solid protection.

Diamond Age NeoSteel Helmet is now available in Black, Green, or Tan and in Medium or Large/Extra-Large for an MSRP starting at $195.00. The Combat Circlet is an additional $125.00 and the Ventail face protector is $187. Please allow anywhere from seven to fifteen weeks for helmets with accessories to ship.

They’ve got glasses or goggles for laser protection. Some of the military surplus ballistic glasses had laser protection inserts too.

Just google military laser protection glasses and you’ll get about 14 different companies that make them.

Now just why does a civilian need this kind of gear. The argument that you have a right to have a gun and should be able to have one without a reason seems to make sense to me. But seeing ads for “civilian” owned firearms with guys tricked out in gear that is clearly designed for the military or LE does not seem to make the same sense. I would argue that owership of military or LE armor argues to premeditation, and not self defense.

I am curious about your first sentence. Would you care to explain its meaning.

Learn some manners. Just because you disagree with a person, correctly in this case, is no reason to insult boomers, many who have also been to war. Yes there are idiot “commie” boomers out there, but commies are not limited to one generation. Having been spit on and called a baby killer when I returned stateside, I guarantee I have no love for those assholes. Boomer vet–69-73.

TNB,
Calling him a Boomer shows that you don’t know much about Boomers. They went to school when Civics was still a class. People who don’t understand the 2A can be any age, and from what I’ve seen, most of those are NOT Boomers.

Most civilians do not need this kind of gear, nor will they ever need it. Most civilians do not need a 4,000 square foot house, an $80,000 automobile, or 90% of the stuff they purchase every day.

The American consumer, and his propensity for confusing his “wants” and “needs” are what drives the US economy.

Marketing/sales is all about converting a person’s “wants” into “needs”. Once that conversion is accomplished, the only thing left to do is help them (the broke consumer) get the purchase paid for.

Don’t forget freedom… In addition “well regulated” means armed, trained, and equipped.

Buster,
Things that are “needed” are determined by circumstances. Things that wanted are different animal. You don’t “need” military arms until you do. At that point you NEED armor as well as other goodies. You can hope that you never need it, but given the condition of many of our cities, it’s not a bet I’d take. It’s like flood insurance, it’s a waste of money until you’re floating. I’ll assume that you already have health and car insurance even though you “hope” to never use them.

What exactly are these people who dare to acqugear premeditating? Some states have laws that enhance charges/penalties for using armor in the commission of a crime. Even without such laws, I’m certain that use of armor would be used by the prosecution to prove malicious intent. With all that has gone down this year and God-knows-what still to come, is it really unreasonable to want armor if you plan to defend yourself with firearms? Do you believe the majority of gun owners bought their guns with the intent to use them? To piggyback on Buster’s point about economics, the past 6 months… Read more »

Your post caused me to remember a phrase: “From each according to their ability and to each according to their need.” And we all know where that came from, don’t we.
