      At just under 1kg, that's basically expecting someone to carry out their duty wearing a modified motorcycle helmet on one's head. Hope it comes with a neck brace for those troops who are mechanised.

          You do realise it is not a modified motorcycle helmet? Motorcycle helmets aren't exactly designed to stop small hard pointy things going thru the helmet...
          Everyone who's ever loved you was wrong.

              what helmet with decent ballistic protection weighs much less than 1Kg?
