Improve your Helmet’s Utility with the War Bungee from War Sport Industries

By Bryan Black

While ballistic helmets are certainly necessary in some situations, more-so for Law Enforcement and the Military, the FAST Base Jump Helmet from Ops-Core has recently become my go-to brain bucket.

It affords me the protection I need when things get retarded, including myself. To complement the versatility of the FAST Base Jump Helmet, which is already full of features, War Sport Industries has come up with an interesting way of utilizing shock cord to create a retention system they’ve dubbed the War Bungee.

The primary feature of the War Bungee is to provide the end-user with a method for retaining NVG counter weights, IR devices, lights, communication cables and even indigenous foliage. I’ve also found a few other items that the War Bungee is great for securing, as shown below in this video.

I really feel like the War Bungee adds utility to an otherwise unusable space on the top of a helmet. Previously you were limited to either using tape or hook and loop to secure items. While the War Bungee is limited to helmets with holes in the top, which excludes any ballistically rated helmets, it’s definitely a unique approach to helmet retention.

You can find instructions on how War Sport recommends routing the War Bungee here, but as mentioned in the video, I was able to figure it out without using instructions. The most important part in the installation is ensuring that the shock cord does not route over the Occ-Dial components, which control the fit of the helmet.

The War Bungee is US made and comes with shock cord, webbing loops (which are stitched with Kevlar thread), ITW Cordloc and ITW Web Dominator. They’re available in Coyote, OD & MultiCam and can be purchased direct from War Sport here.
