Introducing Revision’s Next-Generation Special Forces Helmet Suite: The Batlskin Caiman Head System

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

Essex Junction, Vermont (May 15, 2017) – Designed and built in conjunction with Special Operations Forces (SOF) users, Revision Military’s new Caiman Head System reinforces the Company’s standing as the world leader in integrated head protection systems. The Caiman Head System is a true full-spectrum special operations helmet solution, and will be commercially available in stages, starting with the Caiman Carbon Bump Helmet System. The Caiman Carbon Bump System—including carbon bump helmet, a streamlined rail system, and an innovative liner and suspension system—will be available for sale at the end of July.

“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. “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.”

Optimized for coastal, riverine, maritime, high-altitude, freefall, and ground maneuvers, the Batlskin Caiman Helmet System is designed to withstand an extreme range of environmental conditions–—tropic or arctic, day or night, arid desert or open ocean, and beyond. Revision has also developed a new set of accessories that will enhance this cutting-edge, lightweight helmet for boat, vehicle, HALO/HAHO, mountain, river, and direct action missions. The Caiman system is the first carbon bump helmet in the industry that can be ballistically-enabled with add-on armor appliques for ballistic, blunt-force, blast-force, and fragmentation protection during specialized operations. Skeletonization of all system components has significantly reduced the overall weight, emphasizing scalability and versatility for highly dynamic and unpredictable situations.

Providing a unique combination of agility, protection, adaptability, and integration, the Caiman system is ideal for SOF global operators, as well as law enforcement, paramilitary, and peacekeeping forces the world over. Revision’s Batlskin Caiman suite also includes a Ballistic Helmet System, and both the Carbon Bump System and the Ballistic Head Protection System have a series of accessories and components for mission-specific modularity. In total, the Caiman suite emphasizes scalability for use in a wide variety of specialized maneuvers. To give significance to the many facets of the full Caiman Head System, the suite will be rolled out in several phases. The Caiman Ballistic System and additional Caiman accessories will be available commercially in subsequent product rollout campaigns later this year and early in 2018.
