    Top tier product

    Posted by Saul Todd on 10th Oct 2022

    Ops-Core helmets don’t really need a hyped up review. They’re one of the best helmet brands out there. Arms Unlimited is a great company to deal with. They ship quick, communicate well, and have great prices.

    Upgraded Model

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Aug 2022

    Better than advertised. Includes the upgraded Vented Lux-Liner kit wich is an unadvertised surprise that just adds to the value. The Ops-Core FAST XP High Cut Ballistic Helmet will not disappoint.

    Quality from Ops Core and AU

    Posted by Lenny on 8th May 2022

    Helmet is exactly as advertised, to include the standard Ops Core travel cover and additional pads. Arms Unlimited shipped it quickly and even with the basic shipping option I received it in a very timely fashion. I would definitely purchase from AU again.

    Best price and availability

    Posted by Mike F on 4th Apr 2022

    After searching for bumps and other options out on the market I found this in stock. The price was great and AU ensured it arrived in one piece. Great helmet, fit is perfect, and even comes with a cover for it when it’s not being used.

    Unbelievable Pricing, Quick Shipment

    Posted by Mason on 11th Mar 2022

    This helmet is a major upgrade compared to the gear I have usually been issued. I wanted one to have that I could take with me from place to place, and train in without worrying about getting grief from supply. The pricing from this listing is unbeatable, and so was the fast shipment and receiving (5 business days from time I placed my order.) Truly a great purchasing experience!

    Great helmet/ Great value!

    Posted by Aaron on 11th Jul 2019

    Finally “pulled the trigger” on this helmet for use on SWAT/LEO operations. I was issued an old Mich helmet, but you just can’t beat the safety, comfort, style, and function of this industry standard. This is the best price you’ll find for a ballistic Ops Core helmet. Sometime you just have to ask yourself, “How much is my life worth?” Get it while you can!
