Agilite Mohawk

Aerodynamic, “snag-free sides” along with a snug fit are intended to keep it from flapping about (or off entirely) during helo operations or freefall and to reduce noise signature (particularly when the helmet and attachments are wet).

 

The Mohawk is not currently rated for Viking horns.

Thank God for you Riceball. I appreciate you're input two much too describe. Ill bet the readers due to.

(I'd blame spellcheck, but really I was just typing fast and missed it, and spellcheck wouldn't have caught it anyway.)

In case anyone else was worried about inaccuracies in the article, I was joking about the viking horns.

Looks like it has the ballistic protection of a bicycle helmet. For Halo jumps we used padded soft leather helmets years ago…are we reinventing the wheel?
