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!

Sphagetti Time

I saw this and obviously had to buy it so it could sit in the storage room. Purchased the lower quality option, and besides a slightly loose screw, everything is fine, even if a bit dinged up. Straps are fine, foam is fine. Came with an Italian helmet cover, but I have a USGI woodland one for it, which i removed for the review pictures.

It's a helmet alright

Yup, looks and feels like a helmet. Fits on my head like a helmet. Will probably work like a helmet too, maybe. Looks great with an M40A1 gas mask.

Excellent quality and fit

Measured the ol cranium at 56cm and ordered a medium since thats all that was left. The fit is perfect, maybe a little bit big looking on me. I ordered the excellent quality and it is as advertised. No rips or tears in the harness or cover, and no imperfections on the helmet itself. Very pleased with my purchase.

It be a helmet

I'm probably retarded, it took me a week to figure out how to put the helmet cover on.

The helmet fits nice though.

Comfortable and in good condition

Can't say anything about the ballistic capabilities of it but the video showed it looks pretty good. Otherwise though, it fits really nicely to the head. And it's actually a bit more comfortable than my "fancy high speed" ballistic helmet I've got.
