Revision Adds New Helmet to Caiman Helmet Family

Revision Military unveiled a new addition to the Batlskin Caiman Helmet family: The Caiman Bump Helmet System. This new, distinct Caiman Bump helmet is built on an advanced reinforced polymer shell and is designed for the rigors of maritime and mobile maneuvers. The helmet system provides blunt impact protection that meets advanced combat helmet (ACH) standards. Optimized for a variety of operators, particularly global Coast Guard, Search and Rescue, Law Enforcement and National Guard forces, this skeletonized helmet system places a premium on scalability and integration, giving operators a more stripped-down base for affixing headborne equipment. The Batlskin Caiman Bump Helmet will be available for purchase by the end of Q1, 2018.

“With the addition of the Caiman Bump Helmet System, this family of head protection solutions continues to rapidly mature,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military. “Revision has now unveiled a trifecta of versatile, lightweight, and scalable solutions that are ideal for fast-moving missions. Revision’s Caiman solutions put the power in the hands of the user, letting the operator dictate their protection level, integration, fit, and weight in accordance with the mission ahead. This is the demand we heard from operators as we developed the Caiman line, and we will continue to address the needs of a wide spectrum of operational demands and mission profiles with this groundbreaking family of head protection solutions.”

The skeletonization of all system components in the Caiman Helmet Systems has significantly reduced the overall weight compared to currently fielded helmet systems, emphasizing scalability and mission-specific accessories. Like Revision’s other Caiman helmets, the Caiman Bump comes in five sizes, ensuring users are wearing the lightest, most comfortable, and most stable helmet possible. Moreover, Caiman helmets are expressly designed to incorporate electronics, communications headsets, and other specialized equipment needs—particularly, Revision’s recently introduced, next-generation circumaural headset, the SenSys ComCentr2™ Tactical Headset System.

The Caiman Helmet family includes the Caiman Ballistic Helmet and the Caiman Hybrid Helmet with an optional Applique that ballistically-enables the Hybrid shell. Additional accessories include two visor variants, one that attaches directly into the Wilcox® L4 Shroud and one that works in tandem with front mounted equipment and two mandible variants, one bump and one ballistic, as well as a streamlined rail system, an innovative liner and suspension system, and helmet covers.
