AbstractA crash helmet assembly is provided including a lightweight shell or lattice of sufficiently rigid material and geometric design to surround but not contact the user's head. The helmet is affixed to a rigid vest-like garment by interconnecting rigid straps and braces such that the resulting combination deflects compression impact forces away from the head and neck and onto the user's shoulders and upper torso.
