MSA Frontline: A History of Trust
United States military forces have trusted MSA since World War I to
provide the best in personal protective equipment, as generations of
soldiers have worn MSA gas masks. In recent years, our military forces in
Iraq and Afghanistan have trusted MSA’s battle-tested Advanced Combat
Helmet (ACH) and MICH™ Communication System. MSA’s ACH has been
adopted as standard issue for all troops deploying to the Iraq/Afghanistan
Operations Theatre, and is credited with saving soldiers’ lives during
combat. MSA’s scope of equipment performance and comfort is essential to
the safety and well-being of our military forces. MSA Paraclete’s products
have been Proven Under Fire, leading the industry in high-quality protective
equipment and tactical gear systems.
MSA’s Commitment to Our Armed Forces
With today’s increasing need for specialized personal protection, MSA
has invested significant resources toward our research and engineering
capabilities, including three ballistic testing chambers. We take the
business of protecting our troops very seriously, evidenced by our working
relationships with the military community. As an ISO 9001-2000 certified
manufacturer, MSA strives to improve and innovate our designs, materials
procurement, and production processes. Our products are thoroughly
field-tested to exacting requirements, and meet or exceed industry
standards. We consider ease of use, excess weight reduction, and employ
quality assurance processes in order to provide maximum performance as
well as comfort. Our first priority is our commitment to the U.S. military’s
personal protective equipment. MSA—protecting the protectors, since 1914.

COMBAT HELMETS
MSA Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH)
★
The MSA Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) delivers advanced ballistic, fragmentation,
and impact head protection, with unsurpassed comfort for long-term use.
The helmet’s low-profile design reduces the risk of interference in target acquisition
and ensures compatibility with NVGs (night-vision goggles), MSA’s CBRN (Chemical,
Biological, Radiological and Nuclear) Gas Masks, and MSA’s communication devices.
An innovative suspension system of movable comfort pads provides customized sizing
and superior comfort. The sized pads conform to the shape of your head to distribute
the helmet’s weight evenly and comfortable. Simply adjust and move the absorbent
pads for a flexible, personalized fit.
Proven Under Fire
The MSA ACH, based on MSA’s original MICH helmet, was developed for the
U.S. Military Special Operations Command, meeting stringent requirements and
unprecedented demands , and setting new performance standards. Named a Best
Invention by U.S. Army Materiel Command, the U.S. Army was so impressed that
MSA’s ACH was adopted as the standard of issue for all troops deploying to the
Iraq/Afghanistan Operations Theatre.

“It saved my life,” 1SG (First Sergeant)
Colin Rich said simply, of MSA’s ACH he
was wearing when a “friendly” Afghan
soldier shot him in the back of the head.
He traveled nearly 10,000 miles to MSA’s
factory in Newport, Vermont, to thank MSA
associates who had made his helmet.

MSA Ballistic Helmet Pad System
The MSA Ballistic Helmet Pad System is the suspension system
for ACH, MICH and TC 2000 series ballistic helmets for the military.
The Pad System provides standoff, comfort, protection and stability.
The pads are easily attached, removed, and reattached to the inside
of the inside of the helmet shell via a hook and loop fastening
system in order to facilitate user comfort and integration with other
equipment. The pads remain firmly in place when attached and
provide the user with the ability to attach the pads where the
wearer desires (i.e. in a variety of locations) and permit accommodation among different size and shape heads and some equipment.

VESTS/BODY ARMOR
Releasable Assault Vests (RAV)
★
The original Releasable Assault Vest can be
removed instantly via a patented single-point
release feature. Vest includes full Molle-style grid
webbing, sewn-on drag strap, integrated drink tube,
communication channels, zip-off back panel and
full modular system of add-on pouches and
accessories. Complies with NIJ Standard-0101.04,
2005 interim requirements when with armor.
• 10” x 12” rifle plate pockets
• Built-in side plate pockets for 6” X 6” hard plates
• Hook and loop closure for access to internal
armor plate pockets and soft armor package
• Military specification materials
• Ballistic performance exceeds outer tactical vest
fragmentation standards
In May 2006 tactical
commander Chris Joyner,
a private security contractor
assigned to the U.S.
Embassy in Baghdad, was
riding in an armored vehicle
when an IED nearly ended
his life. The powerful blast
almost rolled the five-ton
vehicle.
The explosion broke his
cheekbones and dislocated
his jaw. A spray of molten
copper and shrapnel destroyed his right eye and
lacerated his face and body.
★
Although dazed and
disoriented, he never lost
consciousness. When a
medic tried to cut open his
MSA Paraclete RAV, Joyner
stopped him.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa,” he
cried, “just pull the cord!”
Cutting the tough, 1000denier nylon could take 10
minutes—time Joyner
didn’t have. The medic
grabbed the emergency
cord and pulled. In
seconds, the fully loaded
vest separated into five
components and was
out of the way.
“It saved my life,” Joyner
said of the RAV’s patented
cutaway system. In fact, he
was told that the 10 minutes
saved by the quick release
of his MSA Paraclete vest
were truly the difference
between his life and his
death. In September 2006,
he visited the MSA Paraclete
plant in North Carolina to
thank those who made
these vests.
To: MSA Paraclete Armor & Equipment
From: a 24 th Infantry Soldier in Iraq
I just wanted to write you and let you
know that your RAV vest saved my life
last week. I am up here in Mosul and
we got caught in an ambush. I was hit
with a 7.62.x54 bullet in the very top
part of my SAPI plate. The round went
through my arm, through 2 full mags,
and finally stopped in the final liner
of my SAPI.
The reason that I say it saved my life
is that because of the RAV design,
the SAPI plate does not sag and it is
always in the proper place. With the
interceptor, if you wear it incorrectly
or the hook and pile is worn, the SAPI
plate sags and does not cover all of
the "vitals". Your RAV does not sag
and it is impossible for it to be worn
incorrectly.

MCU-2/P Chemical-Biological Mask
★
When the United States Air Force has a risk of chemical warfare
attack, it needs respiratory protection, it turns to MSA for the
reliability—and durability—of the MCU-2/P Chemical-Biological Mask.
The MCU-2/P Mask has proven to be the respirator of choice for the
Air Force as well as other U.S. Government agencies, including the
U.S. Navy, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Coast
Guard, to name a few.
MCU-2/P Mask is available in small, medium and large sizes to
accommodate a wide range of respirator users. It uses the ESP II
Communications System (optional).
The MCU-2/P Mask is shipped complete with a drinking tube and an
internal nosecup that deflects exhaled air away from the eyepiece to
eliminate fogging. Accessories include clear outsert, tinted outsert,
laser-protective outsert, durable carrier and butyl hood.

Responder™ PAPR (Powered Air-Purifying Respirator) ★
A belt-mounted powered air-purifying respirator with choice of 2 proven tight-fitting
facepieces in 3 sizes. The motor/blower provides constant air flow of a minimum 115
lpm to the facepiece via the breathing tube. Can be used with cartridge designed to
meet upcoming NIOSH CBRN PAPR requirements or with the OptiFilter® XL or PAPR
GME Multigas HE cartridge for tactical operations.
• Protects wearers for up to 8 hours
under many hazardous conditions
• Choice of 2 proven positive-pressure
facepieces, the MSA Millennium and
the MSA Ultra Elite
• Passed MSA developmental tests
against live chemical warfare agent
as proposed by the recently
published PAPR CBRN standard
• Choice of CBRN cartridge (pending
approval) or multi-gas / particulate
chemical cartridges for non-CBRN use
C420 PAPR with Millennium Facepiece and CBRN cartridges
MSA’s C420 PAPR system is ideal for military and special operations personnel
who need non-IDLH respiratory protection for an extended period of time.
Industry trusted, with over 50,000 C420’s fielded in various U.S. military programs,
the C420 Motor-Blower is ideal for filtering contaminants from ambient air and
providing a constant airflow of at least 115 lpm to the user’s facepiece, providing
a twenty times greater OSHA assigned protection factor than APR, due to positive
pressure in the mask.
The C420 is available with 2 batteries that have the ability to be “hot-swapped”
during warm environment use. The Lithium-Sulfur Dioxide mission battery has
an 8 hour run-time. The Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable battery has a 4 hour
run-time. The motor / blower will not interfere with radio communications as it is
EMI shielded to MIL-STD-461C.
The C420 comes complete with the motor-blower, belt, airflow indicator and
breathing tube.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
Demand Respirator for Confined Spaces
★
Pressure-Demand Air-Line Respirators are designed to
maintain a slight positive pressure of air inside the facepiece
whether the wearer is inhaling or exhaling. This helps prevent
contaminants from seeping in around the facepiece, even if
there should be small breaks in the face-to-facepiece seal.
Pressure-Demand Air-Line Respirators are designed
specifically for non-IDLH toxic atmospheres. The exception
is if the respirator is equipped with an egress cylinder of air
to use during escape.
Pressure-Demand Air-Line Units require an air supply from
an uncontaminated compressed-air source as stipulated in
General Industry Safety and Health Regulations, Part 1910.134
(OSHA) with the delivered air conforming to at least Grade D
of ANSI Standard Z86.1.

FireHawk® Air Mask with CBRN Protection ★
MSA has you protected with the latest
enhancements to our FireHawk Air Mask, the
fire service’s FIRST NFPA 1981-2002 edition,
NIOSH-approved CBRN self-contained
breathing apparatus.
MSA’s new FireHawk CBRN SCBA was developed to provide you with positive protection
from CBRN agents, according to the stringent
live-agent test regimen of the NIOSH approval
process. Because conventional silicone
diaphragms are among the SCBA components
most vulnerable to CBRN agent permeation,
our positive-protection design seals the new
diaphragm of the Firehawk® regulator from any
initial contact with contaminants.
The key to this protection are these revolutionary components, which lie within the CBRN
version of the second-stage regulator:
• MSA’s exclusive Tetraplex™ Protective Shield
(patent pending).
• A permeation-resistant regulator diaphragm
made of a proprietary rubber compound.
• A modified valve core body (the engine of the
regulator).
These components, plus one of the
industry’s best-fitting facepieces, MSA’s Ultra
Elite® Facepiece, ensure reliable and effective
respiratory protection not only from agents that
might be used in a terrorist attack, but also from
many of the lethal byproducts of combustion that
FireHawk® Air Mask (Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus - SCBA)
MSA’s exclusive Quick-Fill System makes
every SCBA capable of both receiving and
donating air to firefighters in need. Although
the NFPA standard requires all brands of SCBA
to incorporate the RIC connection, only the
MSA Air Mask can make full utilization of the
fitting with our exclusive transfilling capability.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
Safe Escape™ CBRN Respirators
★
When escaping from CBRN agents, every second counts. Depend on the Safe Escape Hood
from MSA. The hood gives your employees the protection they need to escape from a terrorist
situation safely, quickly, and easily — whether they work in high-profile office environments, for
government agencies or embassies, or as law enforcement or first responders. The MSA Safe
Escape Hood is the equipment of choice for today’s diverse workforce.
Engineered for Maximum Performance
Manufactured with a high-performance laminate material, the hood is designed to provide you
with the latest in head and neck coverage with respiratory protection against CBRN agents. The
soft, high-stretch rubber neck seal conforms to irregular neck contours, allowing a secure fit on a
wide variety of users. Its unique sized nosecup helps reduce lens fogging and carbon dioxide
buildup by directing air flow inside the hood.
The Safe Escape Hood canister features a high-efficiency particulate filter and activated carbon
to combat aerosols, gases, and vapors. In fact, the canister used in the hood contains 50% more
carbon than similar canisters used by the U.S. military. Furthermore, MSA has performed extensive
testing on the Safe Escape Hood against both simulated and live chemical agents—beyond what is
tested by NIOSH.

Designed for Comfort
In addition to designing the hood for maximum protection,
MSA also took into account the comfort factor. A user who
is potentially under stress requires ease of donning and use.
The large lens and translucent hood allow better visibility, face
recognition, and minimal claustrophobia. The nose cup allows
communication superior to that of conventional devices,
which require wearers to breathe through a mouth bit. With
the integrated nose cup, wearers can breathe and speak
normally to provide potentially life-saving communications.
The hood also features cradle-type self-adjusting head straps
that allow for quick, no-assistance donning in the event of an
emergency.

FALL PROTECTION
General Harness Information
★
A fall arrest system must always include a full body harness and means of connection between the harness and a qualified anchorage
point or anchorage connector. Such connecting means may consist of a lanyard, energy (shock) absorber, fall arrester (rope grab),
lifeline, self-retracting lanyard, or qualified combinations of these.
Why do we have harness sizes?
Product Sizing
Most harnesses listed in this catalog are Standard (STD) Size. Other sizes are a
vailable for weight capacities up to 360 lbs.* Custom harnesses are available up
to a 400 lb weight capacity at no additional charge (custom harnesses with weight
capacities of 361–400 lbs are priced at the SXL harness size).
*360 lb weight capacity applies to size SXL harnesses and excludes all Gravity Harnesses
and Derrick Harnesses. Gravity and Derrick harnesses must be custom ordered for weight
capacities above 310 lbs. When ordering a harness for a worker exceeding 310 lbs, a custom
shock-absorbing lanyard, designed for the weight of the individual, must also be ordered.
Universal or One-Size-Fits-All harnesses do not
offer proper fit for all users. We offer different size
harnesses to provide you with the best possible fit,
and optimum safety and comfort. If you have any
questions on selecting the proper harness size,
please contact our Fall Protection Technical
Hotline at 1-888-421-8324.

★
Principles of Operation
Product Information
MSA’s Video Capture is a video recording system for
Evolution 5000 Series Thermal Imaging Cameras.
It offers fast and simple video recording of the original
screen for documentation and training purposes.
The small and easy-to-use stand-alone unit can be
mounted and removed on any Evolution 5000 Series
Thermal Imaging Camera within seconds. A new
camera is not required to use this feature.
The Video Capture System (VCS) records the
complete scene that the TIC sees. The system is
capable of recording up to two hours of video,
virtually eliminating the risk of a user missing
critical information. The VCS is ideal for training
and documentation purposes. A standard card
reader stores the information and simply
connects to a PC/laptop to download the
recorded video. Still pictures can be
captured from the video footage using
available software programs like
“Print Screen.”
The system conveniently uses a standard flash
memory card [RS-MMC]. With a card reader, the
video clips can be downloaded to a computer, stored,
viewed and followed up for documentation. The
system offers up to 2 hours recording capability,
providing a complete overview of the environment
and incident in which the camera was used.
The Video Capture System features the same housing
as the Evolution Transmitter, offering the same high
durability, as well as the same lithium ion rechargeable battery and charger used in the whole Evolution
5000 Series of Thermal Imaging Cameras.
