Japanese DEVTAC Ronin Ballistic Helmet

    A Japanese company called DEVTAC makes a very unique ballistic helmet called Ronin. Although it looks like an airsoft mask, it is an actual ballistic helmet providing NIJ Level II protection.

    The Ronin helmet is made of kevlar. It features 7mm additional cheek panels which are held in place by neodymium magnets. The use of magnets allows to quickly detach one of the cheek plates if you opt to have a better cheek weld on the firearm. There is also an NVG mount on the forehead portion as well as Picatinny rails on the sides for attaching accessories such as flashlights. It also has replaceable lenses. There is a built-in system that prevents fogging of the lenses and an optional ventilation system attachment for the head. To have a better idea concerning these features watch the following videos.

    It is also possible to customize the appearance of your helmet by choosing from various colors and camouflage patterns. There is even a US Flag option.

    Below is a video with the ballistic testing of Devtac helmet.

    The overall weight of the helmet is 4.85 lbs. It is possible to order it online and they are shipping it virtually to any country. The price is $2,060 for the full helmet (front mask and back cover) including the NVG mount, rails, and detachable cheek plates.

    I wonder if the appearance of the gear has an additional psychological effect on the enemy?
