Revision's  IHPS small arms helmet (courtesy revisionmilitary.com)

You wear one of these. OK, it’s not that funny. (It is, in fact, Revision Military’s IHPS small arms helmet. “The helmet’s optimized shell design contours the shape of the wearer’s head, increasing their area of coverage and protection while reducing system weight and unneeded space. The system weighs less than existing combat helmets and includes upgradeable mandible and visor protection. It also features an innovative retention and netted suspension system with dial-in comfort settings and high-impact ballistic padding. The suite includes modular ballistic armor plates that can be applied to the helmet’s exterior for an increased level of protection.”) Show me how it’s done. Finish the sentence properly . . .

  1. … until the accessories on you AR outweigh the rifle and you can re-enact every Carnik Con video. Operator as f#@&!

  2. Until… You upholster your car interior and furniture with MOLLE.
    Until… You own 15 cans of tactical bacon.
    Until… You double the weight of your Bushmaster with $20 ”upgrades”
    Until… Your rails have rails.
    Until… Operator becomes the most frequent word you say.

    I might be a bit into mall ninja territory, but there isnt much of a difference.

  3. Put talon grips on your iphone for greater purchase, and carry it in a thigh holster since you have honed that drawstroke to the point where it is greasy fast.

  4. Seem logical that the military would want a helmet that protects the soldiers face, plus a heads up display would be a great asset to infantry soldiers if the obvious technical hurdles can be overcome. Now the psyops people need to figure out what to make look like so that it instills fear into the hearts of as many of our likely enemies as possible.

  5. Is this how the last sentence should read?

    “The helmet includes modular ballistic armor plates that can be applied to the helmet’s exterior for an increased level of protection.”

  6. ….Your EDC pocket knife has a laser, flashlight, 1 point sling, night vision and bipod.

    Do you even tacticool bro?

  7. This 15-year old boy was more tacti-cool than the readers of this blog, or American cops, will ever be.

    Aitzaz Hasan: Tributes To Pakistan Teenager Killed When He Stopped A Bomber

    Tributes have been pouring in for a Pakistani teenager who was killed on Monday when he tackled a suicide bomber targeting his school in the Hangu area.

    Aitzaz Hasan, 15, was with friends outside school when they spotted a man wearing a suicide vest.

    Despite the pleas of his fellow students, he decided to confront and capture the bomber who then detonated his vest, his cousin told the BBC.

    Aitzaz is being hailed as a hero in an outpouring of praise on social media.

  8. I’m going to buy one of these for my son’s ocularist, and replace the night vision goggles with his magnifying headgear. He works near Detroit, might come in handy.

  9. In July 2012 Leonard Embody was questioned/detained/arrested by some of Metro Nashville’s Finest. The video is on YouTube. Leonard can be seen wearing a ballistic vest and can be heard saying the reason he is wearing the vest is because he has a history of having police officers point their weapons at him. Honesty, I like it. So this is Leonard’s next purchase…. Stay tuned to his next video from Legislative Plaza wearing said new helmet.

  10. Pair with Revision Military’s Crosman Urban Mission Airsoft Kit [http://www.airgunwarehouseinc.com/py-2545.html] for the ultimate tacticool experience.

  11. … you stand naked in front of the mirror, admiring the 6″ rail you just superglued to your junk, and say, “bring it.”

  12. Still waiting on a Dune style “still suit” for desert combat. Or just an exo suit with a Gatling gun on the in of the arms.

  13. The only reason for the face shield is because of the threat of IEDs.

    That thing would be hot, heavy, and prevent you from getting a proper cheek weld with your weapon. I have no idea why anybody would want to have one of these.

    • True urban operators in any American metropolitan police force… They are less concerned with cheek weld and more concerned with getting the crap beat out of them by the side of the MRAP they are hanging onto the outside of as they wheel to the future crime scene.

  14. Cheekweld isn’t necessary if that display links to your weapon’s optic a la the Israeli CornerShot, and the military loves that type of thing. It beats sticking your head around the corner and biting lead.

  15. That is stupid. I guess the idea is to make the enemy die laughing. I hated wearing reg Kevlar much less a fancy dirt bike helmet.

  16. Would be nice if it was DOT approved, but that would add way too much bulk and heft to be a practical future combat item, also all I see is exposed neck, I wont feel bullet proof until i am bulletproof.
