No – not helmet up-armor plates. Rifle rated helmet with nod attachment. https://shop.gentexcorp.com/ops-core-fast-xr-high-cut-helmet-system Helmet technology has come a long way in a short period of time. It appears you have a dated understanding. Ask if you want more resources. We can agree to disagree on how important it is in a prep. Hell, I don’t even own one. But my point is it appears to be a huge logical fallacy for the dude who runs a prepping website to do a deep dive on armor plates and then completely write off helmet protection for “99.9%” of people. The head and neck are about 12% of the body, but injuries to them account for 50% of combat fatalities. “police shoot for center of mass” and “they are only pistol rated” – ok? I don’t plan on the police shooting at me and pistols are the vast majority of threats in civilian unrest scenarios. Hell, I’d wager catching a brick to the head is a higher threat than being shot. Brick to the head = game over, so why not at least do a feature on bump helmets?
