They are Epic Air and I ordered them as an upgrade at less than buying them separately.

You would have been good with the Rabintex ACH-3 or the United Shield Spec Ops Delta. I ran MSA and finally a Spec Ops Delta in Kabul all last year before getting a Ops Core Fast Ballistic once I hit the states again. You made the right choice avoiding all the "LVL IIIA Ballistic kevlar L/XL Helmet ACH-3 MICH" helmets all over Ebay. I recently ordered 3 different helmets from 3 dealers that offered no question returns/refunds to compare them to MSA, United and Ops Core parts and helmets. Everyone of the Ebay ACH-3 MICH helmets came in a fancy box with nice instructions with a Large as Life "MADE IN CHINA" stamp on them. All the Copied Ops Core pieces where poor, stamped, brittle plastic copies of Ops Core. I returned all of the helmets since they were all identical and received my money back. I have a Rabintex on the shelf that is about to get my snake paint and drilled for my Ops Core NVG mount. Good Pick!

Oh, one thing I liked about this Rabintex Air Crew is the Rails fit very nicely with no overhang. This one is a size Large, so I can't comment on the fit for a size medium.

I'm actually really impressed with the fit and quality of this helmet. I'm very pleased with the purchase. 8)


do not offer too less protection ear/side? also ACH mid cut little bit better?

Yes, the ACH mid-cuts, or TC 2002 styles do offer more coverage, but if I feel I want more coverage, I'm find with my TC 2000. I like the high cut for the option to use Peltor rail adapters down the road if I wish. And it's lighter allowing my head movements to be more quick in CQB situations.

Another "pro" for the higher cut helmets is the freedom to use headsets like the MSA Sordin Supreme Pro X system that I run. I used the MSA system in Iraq with my standard ACH but it was a tight fit on the sides and it limited the use of the side buttons. If anyone is looking for covers for their Rabintex Air Crew Large helmets can look at SpecOpShop out of Houston. They carry covers in ABD/SERE, Multicam, PenCott GreenZone and Badlands, 3-color Desert, Khaki, and Black.

I concur on the cover. I got my multicam one from SpecOpShop and it fit perfectly.
