PROTECH® Tactical Introduces New R2S™ System for Ballistic Helmets

November 05, 2012
Jacksonville, FL

JACKSONVILLE, FL – Safariland, LLC announced today the launch of the new R2S™ System (Ratchet Retention Suspension System) for PROTECH® ballistic helmets. Utilizing proven retention technology from the construction and industrial safety industries, the R2S System tightens and conforms to the wearer’s head for optimum comfort with a simple twist of the easy-to-grip knob located at the base of the helmet, ensuring a secure fit for any head size.


“PROTECH Tactical developed the R2S System to offer the helmet wearer added stability while providing a comfortable and secure fit,” said Dan McNeil, Director of Category Management for PROTECH Tactical Armor.


The R2S System combines the mesh-crown suspension system used in PROTECH ballistic helmets along with the R2S retention technology. The mesh crown system comprises a four-point, height-adjustable floating pad in the front of the helmet with a chin strap.  This new design enables the user to easily tighten or loosen the helmet to keep it secured to the wearer’s head for a customizable fit.  The result is a helmet that easily adjusts to each individual wearer’s head for excellent comfort.


The R2S System is compatible with the PROTECH Delta 4 family of ballistic helmets or any large ACH/Warrior style helmet with a 4-bolt pattern and can be easily installed as a replacement for existing suspension systems.  The R2S System also incorporates 360° of comfort foam, moisture-wicking pads including a removable nape pad for added comfort and stability.


The PROTECH R2S System is available now.  For more information on the R2S System or any other tactical armor offerings visit:
