Came across the Mtek gen 4 helmet cover just browsing Mtek's website. Never heard of Agilite before. Went to Agilite site and saw an array of decent products. The gen 4 helmet cover was on sale. Ordered one for my flux ballistic, it came straight from manufacturer. Took some time to come from Israel but well worth the wait. Awesome product, totally surprised. Great packaging, product fit like a glove, thick top-notch material. Very functional with good looks too. The incorporated mesh is perfect. One if the best buys I've made for my kit. Hope Agilite continues to make new products. Only suggestion to maybe have less branding (more subtle) on the battery pack compartment logo and maybe a velcro pocket/skinny pouch on that flap. Ranger Green looks awesome, multicam not so much (something about the multicam velcro that looks off). Hope they make multicam black. Also hope they dont skimp to cut costs, but keep up their quality. Agilite is making their mark.

i love it
The FLUX COVER-GEN 4 is pure awesome! Installing the cover is very similar to their Bridge, the cover is attached to the helmet on the velcro patches to the side and back along with 5 additional flaps (3 in front/2 at the back) that attaches to the velcro inside the helmet for an all around secure fit... and the fit is tight! The cover is almost flush all the way from back to front and covers almost every shell part of the helmet. The shroud hole might seem a bit too small and cover some of the Wilcox shroud, but I suspect that's to cover the screws to keep them sheltered from the elements.
The cover gives you everything you need and would expect. Velcro and bungee cord to secure your gadgets, cable management slots, counterweight/Nod batt. pack and standard AA/CR123 batt. holders (4 in total).
The velcro is very catchy and keeps your velcro dependent gadgets securely in place. I wouldn't second guess putting my MOHOC camera on one of the side velcro patches, in fact the FLUX cover, gives you more velcro surface than the actual helmet does. I do wish however they didn't make the velcro patch a V shape as it creates a little "deadspace" where I think more could have been useful, but this is probably a design question and keeps the cover more flush following the helmet contours even more.
The middle portion of velcro is usually where you attach the very pricey stuff and with the Bungee cord, you have no risk of losing them. The bungee tabs acts as a center point as well to keep the gadget in place.
The counterweight/NOD batt. compartment at the back is big, or it looks big. The flap has a big velcro surface to add any IR/Morale patch. But the actual compartment is very tight, but not too small for ex. ANVIS batt. packs.
The fabric and mesh combo is great and the whole cover just looks and feels brilliant. You can clearly see that Agilite did a lot of designing and thinking to make this cover one of the best covers for the FLUX Helmet.
I have been waiting for someone to release something like this for a while. This helmet cover, once again, proves that Agilite knows what they are doing and that you can trust our Israeli brothers(and sisters) with bringing quality gear to the market. Over all fit is like a glove, the cover Velcro matches the Velcro that comes stock on the helmet, which is awesome due to the pre-thought out original locations including small sections on the brim for IR markers. The cable guides on the ridges of the helmet make routing NVG cabling easy and snag free. The integrated battery/counterweight pouch holds the battery pack secure and protects it, as well as the switch, during use (which most external pouches fail at...). Agilite excels when it comes to small nuances that make a difference, such as the elastic cable blocks which can be used to prevent shifting of things like IR marking devices. Guys at Agilite, once again, you prove that you release quality when it's ready and not until it's ready. Stay Deadly!
