Forze Armate "SEPT2" Italian Level II Ballistic Helmet

For Costume Use Only

Rome was built on the back of Greek politics, pasta was inspired by Asian noodles from Marco Polo's travels, and Beretta improved on Walther's P-38 with the 92. The Italian Peninsula has always been a hub of refinement, and when it comes to the SEPT2 ballistic helmet—things are no different.


If you take the PASGT helmet as a starting point, you've got a fairly good idea of what you're signing on for with one of these: solid protection for your head, temple, and ears from pistol threats and shrapnel. The SEPT2 is also pretty comfortable, easy to adjust, and quick to don and doff. These '90s-style helmets may have been declared obsolete by the Italian government, but they hold up pretty good. (And to be fair, a lot of the Italian army still uses the SEPT2, so take that as you will...)

We Shot it a Bunch

 

Legally speaking we can't recommend these for anything other than 'costume use.' Of course that didn't stop us from shooting one. Our conclusion? These helmets are roughly NIJ II. In our casual test the helmet stopped NATO spec 124gr 9x19 and super hot Egyptian +P+ smg ammo. A human head likely wouldn't have a great day, but we weren't able to penetrate the helmet.

 

These helmets are a limited-time offering. We aren't expecting to get more in, so grab one while you can!

Five Star Brain Bucket

I'm beyond impressed with this helmet, it fits perfectly and looks good as well. Haven't had the fortune of being shot in the head yet so the verdict is still out on how it'll perform then. BUUTTT, I did don this piece during a drunken stupor while partying with some friends and in the process took a whole ass Twisted Tea to the dome piece. Without this helmet I surely would've been a dead man, but instead I was alive for another day and able to party on for hours longer. Five stars just can't summarize how happy I am with this purchase, but it'll have to do.

Got this in a gumball box

I'm happy as heck to have this. Being an Italian why would I not be geeked? It's a medium (couldn't choose because of raffel) but it fits pretty damn well. Thanks Ivan!

It's Good Poor Man's Helmet

Bought it discounted for memorial day, wanted and needed a helmet, balling on a budget, got a helmet. The straps are admittedly confusing at first, and the helmet is shaped a bit funny, but I trust it. The circular leather pad had some black cellulose/Styrofoam type padding on top that had long dry rotted away, but I just scraped it off and shook all the dust out while getting the helmet built to what I thought was comfortable enough. The leather band suspension is dated but honestly I prefer it over the foam padding of the ACH. Only real legitimate complaint I have about this pattern of helmet is the chin strap is a throat strap, which is kind of odd, but hey, if you're into that stuff, this is the helmet for you.

It's milsurp saturday

I bought a "good" condition helmet, only had some paint chips and scuffs. The suspension system looked brand new. It's a good fit that pairs well with masks if you want to look rad.
