Pacific’s ‘Patroller’ delivers on tactical head protection and military styling

Pacific R6L Patroller Tactical Helmet

Pacific Helmets is a globally respected manufacturer and exporter of safety helmet products that balance paramount protection with design functionality and wearer comfort.

Flexible manufacturing processes and an innovative design team have lead to the development of many popular specialty helmets, including the R6 range, which is the very embodiment of the term ‘multi-purpose’.

Part of the R6 range is the award winning R6L ‘Patroller’ – a head protection platform with military styling, designed for tactical applications, technical rescue, USAR and wildland fire.

The ‘Patroller’ is a lightweight helmet with a longer shell than the other members of the R6 family. The increased internal space in the ‘Patroller’ makes it a great choice for larger head sizes. The Pacific Ratchet Adjuster Headband allows the user to further customise the the fit and helmet ride height.

Pacific R6L Patroller Tactical Helmet

Pac Fire standard ‘Patroller’, available for purchase from the website, is fitted with Picatinny Rails, front accessory straps and pull down internal eye protection. As with all Pacific branded helmets, the ‘Patroller’ can be customised with other features like a VAS shroud, earmuff clips and face shield mounts.

Pacific’s R6 ‘Patroller’ is available from Pac Fire in a large range of colours and paint finishes.

The Pac Fire 2021-22 Catalogue has gone digital

2021 hasn’t been what we’d call a ‘typical year’. Pac Fire’s catalogue is traditionally released at the annual AFAC conference. Due to the cancellation of AFAC21 (…and many other, important events in our calendar), Pac Fire’s updated catalogue never made it to the printer.

In a year where it seems everything has been cancelled – we’ve decided not to cancel the release of the 2021-22 catalogue, and rather release it digitally via our website.

This edition of the catalogue features great new releases like the Pacific F16 Multi-Level Helmet, MSA Bristol EOS structural fire ensemble and the ‘Evo’ wildland fire ensemble. But that’s not all…. Check out all of the recent releases in this years digital catalogue.

Never fear all your hard copy lovers! The catalogue will be back in all it’s printed glory in August 2022.

Download the updated digital catalogue here and remember it’s been designed to work in conjunction with the website and our new YouTube channel.
