MTEK Flux vs Ops Core SF Super High Cut

Thanatos ·
Hey guys, I'm on the fence between two ballistic helmets (personal purchase) and I'm hoping the experts here can help tip me one way or the other. I have problems with the traditional "high cut" helmets, in that they push my Peltors slightly too low on my ears. I'm looking for more clearance, and I initially thought the Ops Core SF Super High Cut (the successor to the "Maritime" model) would be my best bet. But then I saw MTEK Flux helmets. I really dig how they seem to "cup" the back of the...

Mohican has solid advice. For those with a similar question, sizing up one helmet size also helps with earpro fitment. It takes a certain amount of space for the head band. That can be achieved with a larger helmet, then shimming the helmet to correct fit with a pad kit like the Team Wendy Epic Air or similar. Remember to position the pads so as to leave a channel for the head band to nest in. I am guessing that the OP had not done that based on other comments. Also, for the good of the...

Hard headed veterans is crap. Flux is a good helmet, light weight and stable, but if I had to do it again, I’d get the Ops-Core FAST SF (wasn’t available at the time and Maritime was 12+ month backorder) purely because Ops Core has much better support equipment for the FAST. Right now in order to work the AMPs I’m about to pick up I have to have a buddy machine out a adapter. It’s better then it was when I first got it (preorder) but still not to many add ons for the flux that I like.

Give a try to Team Wendy EXFIL Ballistic SL. I'm using it with Peltor ComTac XP. It's really comfortable and fits right in the head. It may be even cheaper than others.

Thanks MOHICAN for the input, don't expect a reply from the OP though, he got banned for ass-hattery of the highest order.

I have just read the cause of the banning. It's a pity!

By the way, what I like the most about Team Wendy is their R&D regarding head protection. A helmet is not just for ballistic protection, but more likely for TBI from bumps and blasts. For sure TW take that very seriously and that's their root and mission: better protect user head. Maybe I'm biased to TW. I can't objectively talk about helmets without using every brand and model available, which I can't afford (gifts accepted). But just taking data available and comparing, TW is a great...

Is the OP more likely to be shot with JHP or FMJ? That might help us give advice. I apologize. I’m an asshole of the highest order and simply couldn’t resist.

so my helmet journey started with regular GI issue ACH style helmet to Opscore Carbon, Team wendy ballistic, Crye airframe and now to Opscore maritime that I am currently running. I also tested 3M ULW and revision Caimen for a very limited time. So all, in short, I also had the exactly the same earpro sitting too low and hurting my head problem, with the ACH so I tried Opscore carbon just for the sake of trying out ARC rail adapter for the Peltor. with my wide head headband earpro no matter...

I'm using the Unity Tactical MARK to mount the Peltor in the TW. It is said AMP will be available for other helmets. I hope so.
