WORK & CASE STUDIES


Team Wendy SAR Helmet

Team Wendy, a manufacturer of protective helmets and foams, partnered with us to solve a puzzle in the helmet industry.  Many times, the question that we answer for our clients is “what,” but the Search And Rescue (SAR) Tactical helmet was a question of “how?”

Like a puzzle, we had all the pieces. We knew the safety standards that the helmet had to meet, the broad usage it had to have and the accessory mounting capabilities it needed to feature. And of course, as with everything we create, it had to look good.

The ability to mount accessories had previously only existed on ballistics helmets, which were far too heavy and costly for our target, and “bump” helmets which met virtually no safety standards. We found the happy medium that our target needed.

Through a detailed look into the metrics of the safety standards, we were able to adjust various aspects of the helmet to create a product that no other manufacturer had made. The very first purpose-built SAR helmet with tactical accessory mounting capabilities. Staying within the parameters we were given, we even managed to give the first of its kind helmet a modern, swift look with improved ventilation.

The product’s success has made work for those in dangerous professions both easier and safer. Meeting the safety standards in fields like mountaineering and whitewater, the helmet’s broad usage keeps our helmet a category first for Team Wendy.
