Cool Head Helmet
Cool Head Helmet Concept by Andres Salazar Ruiz Velasco has been designed to become used by soldiers when their mission takes them in hot deserts from the Middle East. Just like its name suggests, this specific helmet keeps its user’s head cool.

The identical mechanism is applied to this Cool Head Helmet design. There’s a smaller space inside the helmet which keeps the water from this kind of condensation process, in this method the user’s head stays cool all the period. There’s also a small pipe that will be used if the user wants to drink several water in case involving emergency.
