Skydex ACH/LWH Upgrade Kit

A revolutionary thermo-plastic system that replaces traditional foam. Skydex technology absorbs more impact in less space while providing moisture-wicking and anti-fungal properties in a system that is both comfortable and easy to maintain. Additionally, Skydex pads retain their shape over time, even in extreme hot and cold environments - unlike foam systems that can compress and lose effectiveness and become unsafe. This system is specifically designed to replace the pads in ACH/MICH/LWH style helmets.

  • Exceptional impact absorption in less space - exceeds military requirement of 150 peak Gs @ 10ft/sec
  • Stand ups to repeated use and/or impacts unlike traditional foam
  • Meets military temperature range of 14ºF - 130ºF; Will not harden in cold weather or compress in hot weather
  • Curved pads increase stability and keep helmet in place
  • Quick Dry Reticulated Comfort Layer does not absorb moisture and resists bacteria
  • Open airflow design allows moisture to evaporate away from head
  • Washable and quick to dry
  • Excellent heat management
  • Easy to install
    • Alcohol swabs to clean helmet interior
    • VELCRO coins for custom pad placement
    • Skydex pads
  • Made in the USA

SKYDEX upgrade kit

Great system. Tried foam initially, not satisfied... weak padding, and hot. Ordered SKYDEX kit, much higher quality. BE ADVISED: Kit size 8 is thicker pads (1 inch thick) for tighter fit/smaller heads. Kit size 6 is smaller pads (3/4 inch thick) for looser fit/larger heads. Also, kit does not come with instructions so you will have to seek them online or figure it out yourself. But in the end, much higher quality padding than foam. I feel substantially better-protected.
