    This helmet shipped fast and I got it within a few days. It fits well and is comfortable. It is well built and easy to adjust. I was worried that the quality was going to be poor due to the low price but that is far from the case. This is a must buy!

    Great product! Easily the most comfortable ballistic helmet I’ve ever worn. Easy to swallow price tag as well! Thanks to the folks at Guard Dog, you don’t have to have defense budget money to stay protected!

  21. Chance P. (verified owner)

    This thing is awesome I couldn’t be happier and the price is right

  22. Caleb (verified owner)

    Awesome for the $$$ I planed on upgrading the pads but after taking out some to fit me it’s very comfortable so I can put the money towards NV.

  23. martin K. (verified owner)

    Great product. Very happy with it. Shipped quickly.

  24. Spencer B. (verified owner)

    Great product and great service, was quick and easy and I will be ordering again.

  25. Andrew C. (verified owner)

    This helmet is great. Really lightweight. The free helmet cover looks alot better than the one pictured. I highly recommend this if you wanna protect your noggin but on a budget.

  26. Elder G. (verified owner)

    Shipped and arrived quickly,also well satisfied with the quality of the helmet

  27. Joseph (verified owner)

    I seen the review that was done by Clint & Tim Kennedy on Classic Firearms channel and they put it through hell and the helmet stood up to the testing. My only thing is the helmet cover was a little small for the bigger size helmet. The helmet padding is very comfortable and for the price of it you can’t go wrong!

  28. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Adhesive on back of helmet was put together a little incorrectly. Not as well done on one helmet as the other I received.

  29. Jordan K. (verified owner)

    Amazing quality at an affordable price. Shipped on the same day that I ordered and received it in California within a few days! Padding inside of the helmet is configurable and can be upgraded with premium padding from other helmet manufacturers. The ARC rail is great and can fit lots of accessories. I used the Unity Tactical Helmet II mount and mounted Walker Razor Slim Ear Pro. I also have a Surefire light as well. Well balanced and the ratcheting system fits securely to your head. 10/10 would recommend!

  30. Michael Shaffer (verified owner)

    I’m loving it. It’s not the lightest ballistic helmet out there, but for me 3.5 lbs is not too bad. It’s definitely lighter than what I wore in the Army. Additionally, I added wear it during some workouts to get used to it.

  31. CHAD THOMAS (verified owner)

    A great ballistic helmet at a great deal offers adjustable sizing and great comfort the company has great customer service when you need questions answered quick

  32. Willam F. (verified owner)

    Ordered this after seeing impact testing on line, and realising a popular budget helmet I bought failed it’s testing and was just boat fiberglass. I can say I like the apparent quality, that it’s made in America instead of China, the cover looks good, the wieght is the same as the faux helmet, support cushioning is nice, and delivery speed and ease of purchase was top notch. The minor cost increase is money well spent.

  33. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Took a bit to ship but when it arrived it was a perfect fit for my big ol’ dome. Thanks

  34. Damon H. (verified owner)

    Helmet fit perfect. Hopefully will never have to actually use it. Definitely worth the price.

  35. Trey (verified owner)

    Great Price, Great Padding. Excellent Customer Service.

  36. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Arrived quickly, product is as advertised. Great price for what you get.

  37. Darren Crane (verified owner)

    Helmet is tested by a few different YouTube channels and is the reason I chose this helmet. Opinions run pretty high on this company. The helmet is very comfortable with no hard bicycle foam like a lot of budget helmets have. The dial adjustment is more like higher end helmets than the cheaper Chinese ones that break. Very good product is this price point.

    Great product, very comforable, definitely worth the price

  51. Steven (verified owner)

    I’d been looking for a FAST helmet for a while but was put off by the pricing which varied between $500 – $2,000. I YouTube’d some reviews on various helmets and was very impressed with Guard Dog. The pricing was excellent, it came with the cover and a quick ratcheting strap. Shipping was next day and arrived as described. Perfect for hands free comms, hearing protection, night vision adapter, space for counter weight and plenty of rail spaces for a light. Best value hands down for a certified helmet. I already bought another.

  52. Steven (verified owner)

    Great customer service, fast shipping. Helmet is great and fit is comfortable.

  53. Thomas (verified owner)

    I liked the helmet so much I bought another one for my son.

    We will recommend your product as extremely high value for the price point!
    Thanks again to all at Guard Dog Body Armor! 🇺🇲⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🇺🇲

  57. Gage Bartle (verified owner)

    Pretty high quality and well put together, just a few hours ago I fit a headset to it, I’d highly recommend this helmet if you want a legit helmet that won’t cost as much as your car

  58. Michael C. (verified owner)

    awsome helmet, very comfortable with a ratcheting headband. I wear a small hat and the M/L fit me great. I’m very impressed with the quality and comfort at this price. Btw the mount is metal 👍🏼

  59. samuel (verified owner)

    The brain bucket fits well. Order the extra large size and was surprised of how well it fit!! Not to mention a great price and great customer service

  60. Hector D. (verified owner)

    Order was on back order so I had to wait a couple of weeks but worth the wait. I have a very large head “LOL!” and this helmet fit perfectly. One step closer to getting the gear I need to take some night classes. Next will be some NVG’S and owning the night.

  61. Brian (verified owner)

    I use a Paraclete Operator Elite Helmet (point blank enterprise) on duty. This helmet is very comparable to that one. Weight is about the same as the POE. Price is not. The NVG/NOD shroud on this helmet has very tight lock up on a Norotos Rhno I & II mount for whatever NOD I may be using (PVS-7 or 14). Helmet padding is very comfortable as well. Ratcheting strap system works like a champ on this pot and the side rails seem to be within spec. Just make sure to correctly measure your head with guard dogs measuring instructions prior to ordering this helmet. I have to use one size larger on this guard dog helmet versus the POE.

    Guard dog was awesome to deal with. They have great customer service. Their shipping was faster than Amazon. My ballistic helmet fits good, looks awesome, and seems to be great quality. I also have 2 of their level IV plates. I upgraded from steel. No regrets about that at all.

  64. BRIAN TAYLOR (verified owner)

    Was easy to adjust the fit and removing two pads allowed me to put my Walker’s on under the helmet.

  65. Anonymous (verified owner)

  66. Bradley J. (verified owner)

    Pretty nice helmet, once you get it setup, it fits very good. Solid choice, will probably change out the pads later on though.

  67. Charles Roberson (verified owner)

    Great quality and great customer service.
