The new Max Pro Police BA3AC Helmet offers Level IIIA ballistic protection, weighs 30 percent less than any competitive helmet ,and features the popular Comfort Fit suspension. It is ideal for police, paramilitary and corrections squads handling SWAT team, tactical and general duty operations. The BA3A is the first police helmet to be made of continuously reinforced thermoplastic. Tougher than thermoset plastics used in conventional helmets, the thermoplastic needs less material to meet Level IIIA standards. The reinforcement material is a proprietary blended laminate of continuously reinforced fibers developed and processed by Diaphorm Technologies LLC, Max Pro Police's parent company. "No sweat" reticulated foam wicks perspiration away from the skin. "One size fits all" fit pads are washable and removable.
