Looking like something from Star Wars, SAS forces in the UK are testing helmets made from Kevlar that the creators say are “literally bulletproof.”(The SAS is the UK’s equivalent of the US Navy SEALs.)
Dubbed “Boba Fett” helmets after the infamous character in the Star Wars movies, they come with a HUD (Heads Up Display) that picks up signals to differentiate between “friend or foe” and are air-conditioned so the wearer is protected from gasses and heat. The HUD also has a GPS system that projects maps on the visor.
The helmet was first tested by US Navy SEALs and Army Delta Force.

Question: Hi Brad, I’m working on my doctorate in Marine Biology, and I’m going to be spending the next six months on a boat off the coast of Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica studying pilot whales. Needless to say, I won’t have access to my gym for your standard workouts. I’d really like to keep the momentum going I’ve gotten so far, as I’ve lost 25 lbs so far (too much munching while studying!)
Do you have any workouts I can do on a boat where I won’t have much room? We will have a pull-up bar, and I have bands I can take.
Answer: Check out my article on Small Space Workouts. You only need a limited amount of equipment and your bodyweight and you can get some killer workouts. Also here’s 10 great CrossFit bodyweight workouts. Also here’s some awesome pull-up workouts.
Question: Coach, I’ve been using my old backpack from school and it sucks for rucks and is falling apart. I’ve been looking at ones online, but I don’t know what to look for I guess. Do you have any recommendations?
Answer: Check out this article where we tested ten different rucks. You can also hit me up with any questions you have.
Protein is the most essential macronutrient needed for recovery. To make sure you’re getting enough, SGPT recommends Ascent Protein. Easy to carry on a ruck and mix up with water or cold milk at home.
