Karl and Ian from InRangeTV show the evolutionary steps taken in the ballistic helmet industry to create the modern day ballistic helmet.

Evolution is the nature of equipment and warfare. As science and technology continue to advance, so do the weapons and equipment the soldier carries and wears into war.

The modern day helmet is no exception to this rule. Since ancient times, the helmet has evolved from a steel chunk you wore on your dome to keep your brain safe, to a utility and force enhancing tool that still keeps your brain safe.

Watch Karl and Ian from InRangeTV go through their collection of helmets and discuss some of the advances that were made in order to produce today’s high speed, low drag, force enhancing brain buckets.
