In addition to its rifle rating, the AIRE EX Level III ACH Helmet features a high-cut shell, Velcro, bungee, M-Lock Aire Rail System, Aire Mount NVG Shroud, Aire Support Prime Cushion System, and an adjustable CAM Retention System.

  **Note on "Rifle-Rated" and a common misconception we'd like to address**

This helmet is rated to stop M80 NATO. HOWEVER, backface deformation (BFD) is still significant and will likely harm the user. The rifle rating in helmets is different than plate armor. Rifle-rated plates will stop the bullet and usually only bruise the user's chest. Heads are not as forgiving to such BFD! Rifle-rated helmets are designed to outperform level IIIA ballistic helmets by offering significantly less BFD on pistols, shotguns, and shrapnel. It gives the user a better chance at survival upon impact, compared to a level IIIA helmet!
