U.S. Cavalry Carries SKYDEX® Helmet Pad Kits

Vital Ballistic Helmet Upgrade Kits for the PASGT and ACH Helmets

Radcliff, KY (August 24, 2006) - U.S. Cavalry, the world’s leading multi-channel merchant of military, law enforcement and homeland security equipment, now carries the SKYDEX® PASGT and ACH Upgrade Kits which provide soldiers and tactical team members with the safest and most comfortable helmet impact technology. Recently, SKYDEX® has been approved by the U.S. Army as a helmet pad supplier for ACH helmets.

“At U.S. Cavalry, we are committed to bringing the best products to our customers,” stated Dennis Garvey, COO of U.S. Cavalry. “This is an amazing piece of gear and we’re proud to be the first Master Distributor for SKYDEX®.” Mike Buchen, CEO of SKYDEX® added, “SKYDEX® realizes the expertise in sales and marketing of a quality company like U.S. Cavalry. They have an excellent business model and most of all, the extraordinary people necessary to make it work. We are very pleased to be their partner and look forward to many years of success between our two companies.”

Originally developed for football helmets, the next generation SKYDEX® ballistic helmet pad system features revolutionary twin hemisphere technology. Offering better protection from blunt force than traditional foam systems, SKYDEX® absorbs more impact in less space! SKYDEX® pads also feature a moisture-wicking outer layer and RF welded seams for strength and durability.

Since SKYDEX® technology allows airflow through the system but retains no moisture, users benefit from a system that is quick and easy to clean. Unlike foam, SKYDEX® pads are curved to conform to the head to improve safety and stability. The pads can also endure extreme temperature changes - they won’t get hard in extreme cold or compress in hot weather.

The SKYDEX® PASGT Retrofit Kit includes the 7-piece SKYDEX® Next Generation pad system, installation hardware, 4-point retention strap, a helmet cover strap, VELCRO® coins and 4 alcohol wipes for a quick and easy installation by the user.
