OR-201 Ballistic Helmet (IDF Net)


One of the world’s first ballistic helmets and developed by the Israeli company Orlite in 1976, the OR-201 combat helmet has seen use with the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and has been exported to various parts of the world to be used by military and law enforcement. The IDF, when not using a Mitznefet cover, often equip their helmets with a camouflage net secured by a black elastic fabric, a rubber band or tape to keep it close to the helmet.

This OR-201 helmet set-up has been used primarily by Israeli Defense Forces from 1976 to present (2020).
