Thyrm LLC has has just come out with another great new product, the VariArc™ Helmet Mount with 360˚ rotational indexing.

From the 14 October 2019 Press Release:

“Sunnyvale, CA – Thyrm is excited to announce the launch of their latest product; the VariArc™ Helmet Mount. Featuring positive indexing at forward, umbrella and admin angles, the VariArc mount directs light right where you need it with a quick twist.

VariArc Helmet Mount features 360˚ rotational indexing. It’s designed for use with any light that attaches to MIL-STD-1913 (Picatinny) rails.

Conceived by Josh Jackson (SWAT-LEO) at LMS Defense, with input from other SWAT-team leaders and active-duty special operations soldiers, the VariArc helmet mount features locking teeth biased to the forward position, keeping your light aligned for the most critical uses; but with a firm twist, the VariArc mount unlocks and rotates through 8 additional lower-force index points for administrative tasks and diffused lighting options. Its small footprint and low-profile keep things tidy and the 1913 picatinny rail allows for maximum compatibility with visible and IR lights. Its reinforced polymer construction is built to remain fully functional through extreme temperatures, dirt, dust, sand, water, drops on concrete, and other rough handling.

“We wanted to develop a no compromises mounting solution that allowed our customers to mount one light and use it for all their needs” said Andrew Frazier, CEO of Thyrm, “ and it’s been great to see initial production units already in use with both elite law enforcement and military personnel across the globe.”

Features include:
• Positively locks in the forward index position
• Picatinny accessory rail with 3 slots and 4 ridges
• Retention holes on both ends for dummy wiring critical gear
• Durable, reinforced polymer construction with steel hardware
• Compatible with dovetail-style helmet rails
• Available in black and flat dark earth colorways

As with all Thyrm products, VariArc mounts are designed and made in the USA.

The VariArc is compatible with most dovetail-style helmet rails. It may be used on other helmet rails by using an adapter.

My Thoughts

Thyrm provided me with initial production samples for evaluation with the proviso that it be kept confidential until the official launch date. It’s an outstanding, well-engineered product that fulfils a real need.

The VarArc is compatible with most ARC-style helmet  rails. It may also be used on Team Wendy  EXFIL® helmet rails with the use of Princeton Tec® Charge Adapter mount. The latter is available from Team Wendy for $10.50. It installs easily without tools.

MSRP for the VariArc is only $29.99.
