Counterweight Kit is a customizable weight management system with five (5) 70g removable weights that fit into five elastic pockets. Designed for use on helmets outfitted with ARC Rails, the total weight of the system is 0.3kg. Each internal elastic pocket can stretch to fit one or two weights. When one weight is installed, the elastic can stretch further to accommodate a battery as well for dual purpose storage. the elastic can fit AA, AAA, or 123 batteries.
The Counterweight Kit mounts to the rear of the helmet with custom anchors using existing helmet holes with longer ballistic screws (included). These anchors remain on the helmet while the counterweight assembly can be removed quickly and reattached as needed. The back of the counterweight pouch assembly features hook Velcro attachment for proper and secure positioning on the back of a FAST series helmet. Counterweight Kit has a Chemlight window and Velcro patch for Glint Tape for use with low light IFF.
Counterweights are a good way to balance the helmet while deploying night vision goggles. They aid in the comfort of the helmet over long use duration be keeping it from nose-diving due to the cantilevered weight of the goggles. Counterweight System is very low profile and boasts the most secure design of any helmet counterweight on the market due to the fact that it attaches via Velcro and the rear bolts of the helmet.
