Diamond Age NeoSteel™ Tactical Helmet Accessories Now Available
The world’s toughest combat helmet just got even better with the addition of new accessories, and more to come.
McKinney, Texas (October 2020) – Texas-based, materials science and ballistics specialists, Diamond Age, unveiled the next generation steel NeoSteel™ Helmet in August, and now offer the first two helmet accessories, designed specifically for the NeoSteel Helmet.
The NeoSteel Helmet is a modular combat helmet produced using the most technologically advanced metal alloys resulting in a helmet that meets and exceeds VPAM-3 + Special Threats ballistic requirements. The design is based on the combat-proven M1 steel-pot helmet and is the evolutionary descendant featuring all-day comfort, balance, protection, and unlike the current K-pot polymer produced helmets today, will not degrade over time and weaken its protective capabilities.
The first two NeoSteel Helmet accessories available are the Combat Circlet and the Face Protector. The Combat Circlet is the ideal mounting platform for night vision gear (NVGs) and other head-worn accessories. Made from durable, glass-filled polymer and using the most advanced additive manufacturing techniques it is securely mounted to the NeoSteel Helmet by four retention-system holes on the helmet. The NVG bracket requires no additional drilling of holes into the front of the helmet and provides bungee cord ports for stabilization and retention. The M-LOK side rails accept accessories directly and can also be used as a platform for Picatinny adapters. The Combat Circlet’s vertical crest allows for additional stability and more accessory-mounting real estate. Future modules in development for the crest include applique blast protection and an applique ghillie module. The rear of the Combat Circlet features a tie-down bar for additional stability without using a counterweight. The Combat Circlet also allows for direct integration with the NeoSteel Helmet Face Protector.
The NeoSteel Ventail face protector offers the wearer an enhanced protection platform from ballistic threats. It covers the face, side of the head, and a portion of the anterior neck. It mounts easily and quickly to the helmet using the four retention system holes on the shell and protects from blunt impact, blast overpressure, and debris. The Ventail is also fully compatible with most ballistic glasses and offers an unconstrained field-of-view while being lighter in weight and tougher than traditional transparent ballistic visors.
“Unlike the composite helmets on the market today, the NeoSteel Helmet will serve the warfighter or LEO for years to come. Advances in steel technologies now enable a helmet that performs better than Kevlar or polyethylene composite helmets in many respects,” Diamond Age CEO, Jake Ganor, commented. “And a big plus for the wearer is that the helmet shell is largely incapable of deformation, so there’s a greatly reduced risk of behind helmet head trauma.”
For agencies concerned with “behind armor trauma,” in which the LEO or warfighter suffers from neck injuries due to the head acceleration from a ballistic hit, the NeoSteel Helmet spreads the kinetic energy load across the entire padding system protecting from any blunt impact injuries. Only the NeoSteel Helmet gives the wearer edge-to-edge protection with over 110 square inches of solid protection.
Diamond Age NeoSteel Helmet is now available in Black, Green, or Tan and in Medium or Large/Extra-Large for an MSRP starting at $ 195.00. The Combat Circlet is an additional $ 125.00 and the Ventail face protector is $ 187. Please allow anywhere from seven to fifteen weeks for helmets with accessories to ship.

Straight Shot: Sportsmen For Trump in 2020
Howdy and welcome back to the “Straight Shot Blog”. I’ve enjoyed writing for Bowhunting.Net for a few decades now and it’s always great to be a part of archery history. Robert Hoague, the founder, was a true visionary and had the very first archery-only website on the world wide web – clear back in 1996. He is an archery pioneer and was the first to see the potential of this new medium. I told him that he had single-handedly invented an “electronic” campfire that was going 24/7 all over the world where bowhunters could gather and share stories, photos, successes, and failures in the field, and anecdotes. It has allowed me a place to share my adventures on the road performing instinctive archery exhibitions and share the places I go and folks I meet along the way. It’s also been a place where we have documented the stories of some of archery’s greatest living legends in their own words with the “Celebrity Interviews.”
Due to the Covid virus, I have been unable to perform my shows since March, which means I have missed walking out on stage and doing what I do. However, I have been fortunate to have been invited onto the National Board for Sportsmen for Trump.
I joined about 30 folks from across the United States to speak out on behalf of President Donald J. Trump and how he has been a friend to the Sportsmen and women of this country. I would add he’s also been a firm supporter of the Second Amendment. If you notice, the President puts the spotlight on the criminal and not the gun.
I’ve been a surrogate speaker at some virtual events across the country. In April, I was humbled to join Don Trump, Jr. as a speaker to a group of outdoorsmen/women in Wisconsin. This was a virtual event, but at the end of the program we enjoyed talking archery and he shared with me that he uses Hoyt Archery trad bows and compounds. Fred Bear would have loved having a President’s son in archery! Don Trump, Jr. is a bowhunter and sportsman of the highest degree.
Prior to Covid, I was going to be flying to campaign events across the country and helping to crowd build with my shows. Hoyt built a special, one of a kind bow for these appearances with a beautiful red, white and blue riser. This bow is very special and I’ve shown it off on the virtual speeches I’ve done for the campaign. I even have some special arrows too with the Trump logo and red, white, and blue feathers. This bow and these arrows will be retired after the campaign in 2020.
So what exactly has President Trump done for the Sportsmen of America? He signed the Great American Outdoors Act marking the single largest investment in our National Parks and public lands in history. This bill provides $ 900 million a year in guaranteed funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund and nearly $ 10 billion for long-delayed maintenance projects, repairs, and upgrades to our National Parks. In addition to this, he has also added 4 million acres nationwide to expand hunting and fishing opportunities.
I could list many other examples of what this President has done to promote and expand sportsmen/women’s opportunities and protect these activities. In addition to two great Supreme Court Judges, President Trump has seated more than 300 federal judges across the country that will support and protect the Second Amendment. Recently, he has nominated another Supreme Court Justice. President Trump has been a loud and consistent supporter of your Second Amendment rights.
Now, as we wind this column down, do you want to be a part of this great effort? It’s easy! First and most important, VOTE! We need every single vote and yours counts. Check your hunting and fishing calendar and make certain you are going to be able to be home and then vote on election day. If you will be traveling, please make arrangements to vote early or vote via an absentee ballot. We have the largest grass-root campaigns in history and you can step-up and become a part of the effort. How? You start out by visiting www.sportsmen.donaldjtrump.com and signing up. Next, get your families and friends involved so that they vote. You can make calls, send emails, talk to your hunting and fishing buddies, and use social media to help promote the President’s re-election.
Personally, I am very humbled to play a small role in this historic effort. President Trump supports our military, law enforcement, and law and order. He’s returned “Merry Christmas” to a happy holiday kind of town. He is also the first President in my lifetime to attend the March for Life. And in speech after speech, he speaks his support for the Second Amendment.
I told Don Jr. that his father may just be the “straightest shooter” ever because he speaks from his heart and calls it as he sees it. Like my friend Ted Nugent, the President may not always be the most polished or politically correct speaker, but he has a huge heart for this country and our people, and he will defend freedom and our way of life daily with the stamina of a man half his age.
My friends, this is why I am so very proud to say, together with President Trump, we will continue to be that shining city on a hill Reagan spoke of… and together we will all Make America Great Again.
Until next time, Adios and God Bless you.
