Revision Military BATLSKIN Video

Revision Military released a new video that outlines the details of the BATLSKIN for AUSA. In the video there is a brief explanation of how the system works and a few of the various accessories are seen.

Interestingly, this is not necessarily a new idea. The military has long seen the value in full face protection as evidenced by helmet prototypes of the past like the Model 8. The BATLSKIN is certainly better executed and more practical than past attempts at more broad face coverage for warfighters. A protection system like the BATLSKIN could probably prevent a number of injuries and deaths.

You can find more information on the BATLSKIN system on the Revision Military website.

    This is a great idea and if it works well it really should have been implemented a long time ago.

    I’d really be interested in seeing what people think who actually have used this in a combat type situation (does it fog up, can you get enough air, visibility, etc).

    Love the concept, and I think it would work well for turret mounted gunners. But how would you possibly get a good cheek weld with that thing. Seems to be a pretty important design issue. Thanks for the video!

      I agree that the cheek weld is very likely an issue but even it is just for turret gunners, it could be useful.
