Revision Introduces The Caiman Head System, The Next-Gen Special Forces Helmet

Revision’s Caiman Carbon Bump Head System

Revision Military got their Bump Helmet System designed for Special Forces operators. Called the Batlksin Caiman Head System, this is a full spectrum special forces head protection solution. In line with the Revision’s Batlskin head protection design, the Caiman Head System is also modular with various components and accessories that can be added depending on the mission.

“This new head system, built from the ground up and tailored to the feedback and specialized needs of SOF users, epitomizes Revision’s forward-thinking, holistic mindset,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military. Adding that, “Revision upended traditional helmet development for the Family of Tactical Headborne Systems (FTHS) project. The project management team put in untold legwork, going to great lengths to engage key SOF contacts and stakeholders directly, and absorbing unfiltered, informed feedback. This collaborative, iterative process allowed the team to eliminate guesswork and address SOF user demands in real time. Caiman is not a head system created in a vacuum; the contributions from SOF operators are undeniable.”

The Caiman Head System aims to address the SOCOM's technical challenges head for a Special Forces helmet: optimised weight, protection, and mobility indices and system component integration. The skeletonization of the various components and accessories allowed for a streamlined design and reduction of the overall weight. This helmet system is said to be optimized for coastal, riverine, maritime, high-altitude, freefall, and ground maneuvers. It is designed to withstand an extreme range of environmental conditions, whether tropic or arctic, day or night, arid desert or open ocean, and beyond.
