The new helmets are called bump helmets and are designed for protecting the brain from impacts and shrapnel not bullets and as a fact helmets were only ever designed for shrapnel as it has been and always will be the most likely cause of injury and death to a soldier in the field of battle. The reason they changed from steel to Kevlar was sheer weight of the helmet and nothing else but Kevlar tends to soak up water unlike steel.
