I've been looking for a FAST helmet for quite some time.
I saw the price of this Lancer Tacticaly helmet thinking: "hey! That's something I can afford."
I should have known better.
The build quality is terrible. I just don't know where to begin.
The hook and loop patches are really cheap. They peel off when you remove patches and the interior padding. And the padding itself is made out of that cheap styrofoam that's used for packaging products. You know what I'm talking about. That white crap that gets everywhere when you unbox something.
The helmet itself is pretty uncomfortable. It also runs small so it just sits on my head, and I don't have a large head. For it to fit right, I needed to remove most of the padding.
I think the most horrific part of the helmet is the strap system. It's absolute garbage It's made out of this cheap nylon material that's paper thin. The fastening buckle for the straps doesn't even click when closed. It simply just sits in place. The occ-dial isn't bad. It's functional, at least.
The arc rails. Good lord. Nothing fits right on them. I bought goggle swivel clips and those wouldn't snap in correctly with these rails.
The bungee cords seem like they're going to pull right out. Again, terrible.
In all, this was a pretty bad purchase. And Lancer Tactical again, has failed me.
The occ-dial is decent, and the helmet came in the right color.
That's all I can think of.
