So, humor aside, I’ve been considering entering the market for a ballistic helmet. Doing preliminary research by browsing Optics Planet and YouTube, I’ve found Team Wendy and AR500.
Here’s Team Wendy’s >$1,000 Level IIIA helmet.
And here’s AR500’s $600 Level IIIA helmet.
So… again, what’s the difference? These two products seem to be comparable, so why the large price difference? I have heard that AR500 armor is of high quality, and Team Wendy seems to be the Big Name in helmets. Does anybody know enough about body armor to be able to point me in the right direction?
