Seer S1608 and S1602

What's the difference?

By Kevin Smith - February 2, 2017

One of the most common questions that we receive is "What is the difference between the Seer S1608 and the Seer S1602? First, both helmets are made from the same outer shell, inner liner, and interior. Information on the materials used to make a Seer Helmet can be found on our website. The difference between the two helmet models are: 1) visor, 2) paint trim lines, and 3) harness.

SEER S1608
  1. The visor on the S1608 is a black patent leather visor. The visor is non-removable and is attached to the helmet with 2 decorative screw buttons and one center screw. The visor is available with Gold, Silver or without a rank band. The visor is available with "P" or "S" decorative buttons.
  2. The paint trim on the S1608 is a "straight-line trim". The horizontal trim line is parallel to the ground on the sides and rear of the helmet.
  3. The helmet harness on the S1608 is a closed ear harness. The closed ear harness has 6 perforated holes for hearing attenuation.

SEER S1602
  1. The visor on the S1602 is a black plastic snap-on visor. The visor snaps onto the helmet with three snaps. The plastic visor is available in Solid or Transparent/Smoke. The visor is available with Gold, Silver or without a rank band.
  2. The paint trim on the S1602 is a "curved trim". The horizontal trim line follows the curvature of the helmet around the sides and rear of the helmet.
  3. The helmet harness on the S1602 is an open ear harness. The open ear harness is needed when attaching communication headsets such as the Setcom Helmet Kits. If the Setcom Helmet Kits are purchased at the same time as the helmet, Pull-The-Dot snaps will be installed onto the open ear harness.
