Product Description

Team Wendy SAR Helmet – EXFIL Backcountry

The Team Wendy SAR Helmet (Search and Rescue) EXFIL Backcountry helmet has been designed to become the ideal approach to be sure that your head will be safe from any damage. This high-quality tactical-style helmet could mean the difference between success and disaster. With the Team Wendy EXFIL SAR Backcountry helmet, a superb helmet is easier than ever before to get your hands on. These helmets are from the United States armed service specialists at Team Wendy and are designed to be durable and long lasting pieces of head protection. The EXFIL SAR Backcountry helmet has been created by using the kinds of robust resources that you have come to expect out of this exceptional firm.

The EXFIL SAR tactical helmet exists as a type of hybrid. The demonstrated tactical superiority of the original EXFIL and EXFIL Ballistic helmets has now been adapted for search and rescue work. While there is not too much of a need for ballistic or covert bump protection, there is certainly a need for a well-designed and well-fitting helmet which protects not only the wearer’s head but also offers the many mounting points and high-visibility features which are considered vital to safe rescue operations.

Team Wendy Design and Construction

Proudly made in the USA, the Team Wendy EXFIL® SAR Backcountry helmet has been designed for users who will not be mounting night vision devices to their helmet. This particular version includes a glass-reinforced polycarbonate shroud which can be used for mounting cameras and lights. The helmet is precisely cut so as to allow for the addition of communications equipment or hearing protection. Plus this helmet contains a sport-style under the chin retention strap with a Fidlock® magnetic buckle and a Boa® Closure System. That way, the user can dial in a precise fit adjustment while the helmet’s chin retention strap still provides a single-handed quick release.

An aluminum Wilcox insert is standard; it is for mounting a variety of night vision and lights. In addition, there is a strap pass-through in the back which can be used in order to accommodate goggle straps or headlamps.  The Team Wendy EXFIL® SAR Backcountry helmet serves as the first purpose built Search and Rescue helmet which provides accessory mounting capabilities, while at the same time meeting important industrial and mountaineering performance standards. There is a Team Wendy SAR Accessory Rail 2.0 system on either side of the helmet. This can allow for several mounting options, such as a section of Picatinny rail. Plus an SAR rail system is available as an option.

Team Wendy Partnerships

First developed in 2015, the Team Wendy EXFIL® SAR Backcountry helmet is produced by Team Wendy of Cleveland, Ohio, which also supplies tactical helmets to the United States military, in a long-standing partnership with the American military and the National Industries for the Blind (NIB). The company actively collaborates with leading universities in order to understand and prevent brain injuries due to traumatic shock.
