Cadet MK2 Bump MTP Cap – One Size. In 2018 working with UK Cadets the MKII next-generation helmet has been approved to wear during field craft, FIBUA and on obstacle courses
2015 saw the release of the first Cadet helmet to be worn during training weekends, as well as at Easter, summer and autumn camps. Although the helmet is non-ballistic, they are designed to look like the Mk7 helmet worn by soldiers in the British Army. Moreover, while the helmets themselves are black, each one is issued with a disruptive, MTP pattern camouflage helmet cover, similar to those worn in the British Army and features the word CADET woven.
The helmets have a lifespan of up to four years and are certified to permit the cadet to wear the helmet during field craft, FIBUA and on obstacle courses. The helmet is designed to be lightweight and comfortable, and its design allows it to be worn with Amplivox ear defenders and the PRR radio headset.
Working with Cadets during the development of the helmet, in particular, looking at how it is designed to take one major impact and as a result, deliberately has a weak link built into the chin strap. The chin strap would shear at the helmet joint if the cadet were to end up trapped by his or her neck or head. The helmet has gained a CE mark, and both the helmet and chin strap are registered designs. Before the Cadet helmets went into bulk production, members of the Army Cadet Force were issued with helmets for trials which allowed any changes or amendments to be carefully considered. Once the final design was approved, bulk production commenced, and the helmets were issued to each ACF & CCF unit.
The Senior Cadre is “Training In Built Up Areas” (TIBUA), which is part of the new APC Fieldcraft Syllabus.
This MTP Compatible combat cap has been designed to compliment both MultiCam and MTP uniform and equipment.
