The Husqvarna Forest Technical Helmet is a whole new design that includes a redesign of the way the visor and helmet protect the face while increasing visibility. A new aeration system has as well been applied, creating mild head temperatures. The Forest Technical Helmet may also be customized in various ways so that it can be tailored to meet specific requirements.

The Husqvarna protection helmet is as well extremely lightweight; hence if you wear extra ear protection, it will not weigh you down. Besides the added hearing protection, you may take this additional step and include the FM radio when you purchase the plug-in. A headlight slot is also integrated into this helmet to allow for even more accessories.

Thanks to one-handed ratchet function of Husqvarna Technical Forest Helmet which means the operator has a new, simple, and quick way to adjust the size – even during use. Another modifiable feature is the simple mobility of the new screen for clear vision. Therefore, you can raise or lower it depending on the work and visibility factor. When it comes to putting a helmet on, there is often a build-up of heat, increased sweat, and a general deficiency of comfort. For this reason, Husqvarna has developed a new airing system with huge holes concealed with metal grilles to allow lower temperature without dirt or water entering the helmet.

The protective capacity of the helmet reduces when exposed to ultraviolet light (Sunlight). The UV progress indicator displays the current status of the mask and informs you when to replace it. This helps in ensuring that you are not ever caught off guard and therefore work towards keeping you healthy and safe while working.

Reflective parts at all viewpoints of the helmet ensure that it is visible regardless of its position when working in darker conditions. A calm 6-point textile harness is used for less pressure and comfort. It has an engraved visor for low light and low weight reduction. It also has vertically adjustable hearing protection – flexible in “standby”.

    Very well made and robust helmet
    Fits very well and the ear muffs work very well to muffle the sound
    Strong springs hold the ear muffs in place to
    Highly recommended

    Fast delivery.
    Excellent helmet. Lightweight, easily adjusted to comfotable fit. Visor swings down and up easily without moving helmet on head and stays up until required. Ear defenders swing outwards and stay out but snap back into position to be comfortably effective. Ventilation appears to work but not tested in hot weather. I can only say it didn’t not work.

    A really good helmet, but i got this for someone else, as i personally prefer the Stihl equivalent, the Advance X – Vent.
    I had a Husqvarna Technical Forest helmet though, so i can offer a comparison.
    Both helmets are comfortable, with spring steel visors offering 80% visibility, adjustable headbands with a ratchet so the helmet fits perfectly, and ventilation holes.
    The Husqvarna Technical helmet wins as regards the interior cradle, fixed at 6 points. The Stihl Advance X – Vent is now capable of being fixed at 6 points, but is not set up so out of the box. I only know because i used to have the four point cradle, which was rubbish, and replaced it with the new 6 point headband when it broke. Having seen a new helmet come out of the box i know they are not set up right, still fixed at 4 points, but with the ability to fit at 6, as long as you know this and do it yourself.
    The Stihl Advance X – Vent wins on the ear defenders. An SNR rating of 29 compared to Husqvarna’s 26. That’s why you see so many people with Husqvarna helmets sporting the grey MSA ear defenders, SNR 31. Extra cost though. Plus, on my old Husqvarna Technical helmet, the left hand ear defender would just drop off into the bushes as i was ready to start cutting. Really annoying.
    A colleague had a similar problem with the arms holding the visor popping out all the time.
    The Stihl Advance X – Vent also wins on price. Its cheaper. The Husqvarna Technical helmet comes with a wet weather neck guard, but it is like a soggy rag stuck to your neck when it pours. The Stihl one is waterproof, but you do have to buy it separately. It is still cheaper though adding that in.
    The Husqvarna Technical helmet does have a fancy UV guide on the back, but if you are using this for felling you will end up chucking this helmet, as with all, 4-5 years after first use, making the UV guide pointless. If used only for brushcutting or hedge trimming say, then maybe it has some worth.
    Great helmet, does what it is meant to……just my views after wearing both Husqvarna and Stihl. Both get chucked after 4-5 years anyway if you value your head.
    Radmore & Tucker, of course, were a pleasure to deal with.

    Great helmet, nice smooth opening face guard, rain valance for your neck and a sun visor to clip externally to the face guard. The visibility is so good, I forgot it was closed a couple of times, great light transmission. The helmet has a quality feel. I would note, if you have a big head, be careful. Good luck finding how big it is for many helmets, this one expanded to 62cm, or 7 7/8 hat size. This just fits me, it has 2 pinch points at the rear mounts for head cradle, they press on my head, but once ear defenders are on ,this lessens. So if you have a large head, be aware and maybe try on somewhere of you’re able. Overall I would buy again.
