Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH)
The Gentex Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) is based on the performance requirements of the U.S. Army for ballistics, impact, retention and other protective upgrades.
Lighter than the previous PASGT infantry helmet, the ACH features a pre-drilled Night Vision Goggle (NVG) bracket hole. The helmet shell trim also eliminates the beak and has a higher side trim than the PASGT. The helmet also includes an improved 4-Point Retention and Pad Suspension System, which attaches at four points to the shell with ballistic resistant hardware. Adjustment slides are located on both the front and rear of the retention, allowing adjustment for proper fit and stability.
The Water Resistant Pad Suspension system supplied with each helmet consists of one crown pad, four lateral pads, and two front and rear pads. The pads are 3/4-inch thick with optional 1 inch thick pads available.
