1 Customer Review "Let me tell you, I had been waiting for this helmet to become available. I perspire a great deal during airsoft matches and I was looking for a light weight and breathable system. I'm retired Law Enforcement and suffer from on duty injuries to my neck and spine, so having excessive weight on my head becomes unbearable. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this helmet. This is NOT suitable for any other use except that "special ops" look and relief from those, sometimes, painful BBs to the head.
Super Light Weight
Included Rail Mounts and NV Mount
The Best Headband Adjustment (ratcheting system) I've seen in any mil sim helmet. I wear a 7 1/8 hat.
By adjusting two screws at the back of the helmet, the wearer can adjust the helmet to sit higher up on the brow to allow for goggles (I wear Flak Jak goggles).
Included velcro for external patches/ID tape.
Super light weight internal impact styrofoam with very comfortable, sweat absorbing nylon padding. With the exception of the front and rear, the foam inserts can be adjusted or removed for customized comfort or to allow for room to wear a headset.
This helmet also has an adjustable standard chin strap with a nylon material (feels like swede) for the chin.
The ABS plastic seems a little thin, but it is very rigid. However, I feel that a hard drop or impact may either crack the plastic or gouge/scratch it fairly easy.
The velcro tape on the interior and exterior uses a less than superb glue. So, as the helmet heats up, the glue seems to bubble or wrinkle. Not a hard fix.
My helmet came with a flaw in the color just under the NV attachment. You can't see it unless you REALLY look hard, but it is worth mentioning as a blemish like this could show up in a much more noticeable place with another helmet.
The exterior shell has a good, solid, rough look to it (like that of a military helmet) but, because of the plastic material, it scratches fairly easy.
My overall opinion of this helmet is that it is a really great, light weight piece of equipment that serves it's purpose (looks, cool head, mounts for tactical/camera equipment, etc.). Now, I am a "mature" player and take very good care of my equipment and guns, but if you are the type that likes to just toss your stuff around or tend to drop things a lot, then you may want a helmet that is a little more heavy duty. However, if you are looking for a helmet that allows the breeze to flow through your hair or over your bald head and you find the heavier Mich type helmets uncomfortable, then this helmet is for you. Get it while you can, these things are extremely hard to come by. Also, the size runs on the small size. As I mentioned earlier, I wear a 7 1/8 hat and there was not much more room for my helmet to adjust to a bigger size.
Cheers and play safe!! Write a Review

Emerson FAST Type Tactical Airsoft Helmet (BJ Type / Advanced / Foliage Green)
Emerson high speed helmets are the perfect addition to any airsoft loadout. Modeled after helmets in use by Special Forces operators, the Emerson’s comfortable and lightweight construction offers adequate protection for all airsoft combat scenarios while at the same time minimizing fatigue. Thanks to their modularity and sleek tactical design, these are quickly becoming the new favorite go-to helmet amongst airsofters.
These modular helmets can be customized with a wide array of rail attached accessories, add-on Velcro panels, helmet covers, and various mounts for night vision devices or your Go-Pro Camera to capture all your action! The adjustable strap system ensures proper retention at multiple points while maintaining maximum comfort. The extra wide ear cut ensures your hearing will not be obstructed and at the same time offers adequate space to comfortably wear your favorite communications headset.
Emerson helmets come in a “basic” and an “advanced” version. The basic version is great for operators on a budget that do not want to compromise quality. This version is filled with hard foam similar to bicycle helmets with a basic strap system. While it does not offer the same level of adjustment as the advanced helmet, the basic helmet is still very comfortable to wear. The Advanced version comes fitted with soft foam pads and an adjustable head band instead of the hard foam. The strap also has a chin band for a more secure fit and reduces helmet shift when on the move. Finally the advanced helmet offers a dial to quickly and easily adjust for a wide range of head sizes to ensure maximum comfort.
