A one-stop-shop for helmet setups. Combined with proper Face & Eye Pro, you get rid of all painful headshots. This platform can also be heavily accessorized by adding ear protectors, headphones, patches, 3D camo and much more.
Our favourite Airsoft Helmet Accessories:
For our helmets, we often tend to max it out, using all features the platform enables:
In the front, there is a Night Vision mount ready. However, in airsoft, this mount is also perfectly useful for a GoPro-style camera. Super simple to set up: you just throw in a mount and get the camera rolling! Pro tip: put a bit of foam in between the GoPro mount and the helmet - it will eliminate some vibrations.
For seamless radio comms, we use the Headset V1 mounted directly to the helmet. It enhances your hearing a bit as the microphones attached to the headset amplify important sounds such as steps other players may take. On top of that, it protects your ears from hits.
Lastly, we usually throw in the comfort padding (for a premium feel) and some pouches. Moreover, when the game takes place in a woodland area, we may also opt for a helmet cover to attach vegetation.
What's the best helmet for airsoft?
Airsoft helmets are a kinda special category as not every helmet is optimal for airsoft. There are 3 basic helmet types: real-steel helmets, airsoft helmets and super cheap plastic helmets.
Real-steel helmets are often a bit heavier than the ones usually used in airsoft which may result in your neck being a bit tired after a day. Moreover, these helmets are often substantially more expensive. Sure, they can block a 9mm bullet but that's hardly needed in airsoft - making this option a bit overkill for airsoft.
On the other end of the spectrum, cheap plastic helmets are not really the best option out there either. Sure, they're cheap but often very uncomfortable and without any ventilation. Also, in most cases, they offer little to no customization options. These will generally suffice if you're just starting out but it's far from optimal.
In our experience, we'd stick with an airsoft helmet such as the one we offer. The reason is simple: it's lightweight, fairly affordable, comfortable and actually allows a ton of customization options. See for yourself!
How to use an airsoft helmet for full head protection?
You can easily use the Tactical Helmet as the base platform to cover your entire head. The best way to do it is to combine your helmet with a headset (or ear covers), as well as large tactical goggles and a mesh mask. The V2 Meshmask is the best one for the job in our experience.
