Mil Spec Monkey – The Hardest Working Man at SHOT Show

Monday, January 27th, 2014

If you attend SHOT Show, you’ll see Mil Spec Monkey and his crew of merry men everywhere. Whether he’s picking up women (literally), riding a Tactical Dino or running to and fro’ with cameras in hand, shooting video and stills, that guy gets around.


I caught up with Monkey as he filmed Senior Team Leader Joseph Garcia of US Corrections Special Operations Group and his K9, Max. STL Garcia discussed use of the Core Survival HEL-STAR strobe to mark team members as well as the Team Wendy Bump Helmet.

Look for Monkey’s video soon.

The new Exfil Ballistic helmet being previewed at SHOT Show is a polyethylene hybrid solution. It integrates their Exfil rail 2.0 system as well as a Wilcox shroud.


The first thing you’ll notice is that it shares geometry with the Exfil Bump Helmet. The lines are quite distinctive,


The boltless cam fit system is quite versatile and accommodates a custom fit.


Based on the work they have done with shell manufacturer Armor Source they plan to meet ACH level protection at under 2 lbs shell weight and 2.5 lbs total weight with suspension, chin strap, rails and shroud.

Team Wendy already incorporates a Wilcox Industries VAS shroud onto their helmets. Now, they’ve produced a test bed bump helmet that integrates the Wilcox powered helmet technology developed for their Mohawk helmet technology demonstrator.

The helmet is wired internally for power with contacts in the VAS Shroud to support hot shoe NOD mounts. Additionally, as you can see from the photos, one rail is powered directly and on the opposite side, they’ve selected a powered Mil Std 1913 rail.

The battery pack attaches to the rear of the helmet and can be easily removed. Once again, these are not final, production articles but rather a test bed to demonstrate the capability.

CLEVELAND – Team Wendy, maker of leading-edge, multiple-application products that serve to protect against serious and potentially life-threatening impact-related injuries, has released a new tactical helmet platform that is ideal for military applications.

The company has launched the EXFIL LTP – a Lightweight Tactical Polymer helmet that provides operators with best-in-class head protection and a comprehensive and high-end accessory platform for operating environments that require the use of night vision, cameras, lighting and other add-ons.

The EXFIL LTP is designed for:
-Operators across the military, including combat search and rescue (CSAR) teams
-Various airborne, heliborne and maritime operations such as visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS)
-Training exercises in which low equipment weight and high functionality are priorities

The LTP is an extension of the EXFIL™ line, which launched in 2012 with the release of the highly regarded EXFIL Carbon, Team Wendy’s first complete helmet for tactical operators. A leading maker of protective tactical gear, Team Wendy has been the sole supplier of the standard issue helmet pad system to the U.S. Army, Marine Corps and National Guard since 2005.

The EXFIL LTP is now available for pre-order through and authorized Team Wendy distributors.

Jose Rizo-Patron, Team Wendy CEO: “We are proud to offer the EXFIL LTP as a follow-up to the EXFIL Carbon. The EXFIL LTP offers the protection, design and functionality that our customers have come to expect from Team Wendy. We are also excited to be rolling out our new Accessory Rail 2.0 System, which will serve as a comprehensive platform for the operator. The EXFIL LTP is a natural evolution in Team Wendy’s mission: Innovate to Protect.”

-First and only helmet with an integrated night vision goggle shroud built to the specifications of the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) SPEAR program
