    Default Help identifying kevlar helmet please

    I'm trying to identify the following strange (for me) helmet. It is very heavy-2,5 Kgr.- very thick, and has a characteristic round bump at the top. From the weight and the sound that makes, I guess it has iron inside the kevlar material and also from it's blue color I thought it is an old U.S.N. helmet.I couldn't locate it from: Composite Helmet, Ballistic helmets, Military helmets USA helmet, AMERICAN helmets helmet, Kevlar helmet.
    Thanks in advance,
    Aghs.

    Almost looks like a old motorcycle helmet

    It’s not US military. I’ve never seen one like this before.

    Probably some form of riot police helmet?

    It could be a police helmet, however, I am impressed by its weight (I think it is the heaviest helmet I have ever seen) and it seems strange to me the round bump at the top. Inside it has foam protectors pads like the army helmets.
    Thank you for your answer.

    I have not seen this before. It looks rather crude and basic in form. I would be inclined to go with previous posters and guess a police helmet (after all blue is a frequent colour for such things) and possibly suggest it is a local product from somwehere other than North america or Europe. The fairly extreme weight might infdicate it is an assault helmet, used for a short period in forcing entry.

    It did remind me of the RBR S4 POLICE RIOT HELMET shown here - Composite Helmet, Ballistic helmets, Military helmets UNITED KINGDOM, UK HELMETS, BRITISH helmet, Kevlar helmet - but I do not suggest there is anything other than a vague resemblance!
