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.

Photolume – a low light solution from Pacific Helmets

Photolume - a specialty Paint Finish by Pacific Helmets

Photolume - a specialty Paint Finish by Pacific HelmetsPacific Helmets can customise their helmets shell in over 24 different colours – including some specialty paint finishes. One of those speciality finishes is Photolume. Photolume is a light pastel green finish in the light – when working in a dark environment however, it’s a totally different story.

Photoluminescence is effectively “glow-in-the-dark”. The Photolume effect Pacific Helmets with this paint finish comes from light emitting strontium aluminate based pigments mixed in the paint sprayed on the helmets shell.

It works by way of photoexcitation, a process whereby electromagnetic radiation in the form of photons is absorbed by the pigments and electrons are excited to a higher level of energy in the atoms to the point of emitting light. They can be excited by white light or UV radiation between the wavelength of 200 – 450 nm.

The photoluminescent pigments are harmless, not radioactive nor toxic. They do not store excitation energy and therefore wane in light intensity overtime as the energy dissipates, hence they need to be “recharged” which can take place an infinite number of times. The longer is the photoluminescent pigments are excited by a light source the longer the item will glow, with an afterglow time of generally between 6 to 12 hours long with gradual diminishing brightness.

The benefit of a photoluminescent helmet is it doesn’t require an external power source to emit light in the dark. It glows naturally in low light environments as long as it has been under a bright light to “recharge”. Although it’s light intensity is not as high as a torch, it helps in providing conspicuity in a pitch dark environment where no other light sources are not available.

The helmet pictured with Photolume paint is an R6 Dominator (R6V) rescue helmet. Photolume can be applied to most Pacific Helmets model helmets – a surcharge applies to this specialty finish.
