The ARCH helmet is constructed with high-performance Kevlar aramid fibers from Dupont, making it a trusted choice among professional military and police units worldwide.

Product features

Excellent ballistic 

The ARCH helmet begin life in Switzerland as raw Kevlar fibers from DuPont. They are converted to Aramid layers by Europes’ premier textiles research and innovation center Saati S.p.A. in Italy before pressing into the shell we know and trust.

We use a proprietary pre-preg lamination process which allows us to make a multi-hit ballistic helmet that is extremely durable at a lower weight.

The ARCH helmet weighs only L(2.97 lbs), XL(3.06 lbs) for the complete helmet system. This makes the ARCH helmet, one of the lightest aramid ballistic helmets on the market. The superior weight-to-protection ratio allows for a greater mobility during use without sacrificing the ballistic performance.

The ARCH is tested according to following ballistic threats:

  • NIJ 0106.01 standard with IIIA 0101.06 threats: .44 magnum and .357 SIG.
  • NIJ 0106.01 standard with IIIA 0108.01 threats: .44 magnum and 9 mm FMJ.
  • V50 STANAG 2920: 660 m/s
  • 50% reduction in Back Face Deformation (BFD) against 9 mm (HPW-TP-0401.01B IIIA)

The PGD ARCH is 100% designed, sourced, made and finished in Europe through our purchase and control of all materials, from the raw fibers to the final product. This ensures a stable and quality process throughout the entire supply chain.

Our priority is your safety, and we believe in providing you with a helmet that you can trust to do its job effectively, every time.

We understand that choosing a helmet is not a decision to be taken lightly, which is why we stand behind our products with complete confidence. PGD guarantees our ARCH helmet to provide you with a superior level of protection and performance, any time your life may depend on it.


Our proprietary aramid composition of the helmet allows it to perform the same in both ambient and wet environments as well as in extreme heat, cold and humid conditions without changing any performance on the aramid shell. The ARCH ballistic properties will not fade over time, ensuring long-lasting protection for the user.


Perfect fit
  • 10 pad memory foam
    The ARCH 10-pad system will shape to your head in 2-3 seconds and feels like a "aircrew" helmet. This is achieved through the implementation of our proprietary 10-pad memory foam technology, which delivers unbeatable comfort while simultaneously reducing the impact of blunt force trauma.

    Moreover, the pads is easily replaceable and can be attached using velcro, making maintenance easy.
  • Boa dial fit system
    The ARCH helmet comes standard with a high quality suspension system with BOA dial and Duraflex buckles for a quick, secure fit.

    The BOA Fit dial system rapidly stabilizes the helmet to the head and comes with a lifetime guarantee against failure.
Rail and Shroud system

The front shroud and rails are made with a unique polymer + glass-fiber composition that offers higher tensile strength and lighter weight than all common die-cast metals to include Aluminum, Magnesium and Zinc.

The front shroud is compatible with the Wilcox, Norotos, Cadex and similar night vision mounts.

Our rails are compatible with the following headset adapters: 3m Peltor, Sordin, Ops-core AMP arms, Earmor, and any similar system. Additional accessories can attach to the helmet via provided Velcro or the rail system
