Markesha’s improvising on the fly as her pack power level dips low.
The standard HSF uniform helmet was originally designed during the WayCross War, and held to a very high standard of battle ready technology. Since the wars end, the old helmets were discontinued due to the high cost of manufacturing and put into storage for safe keeping. While the design stayed consistent, the materials for the helmets changed making them drastically less effective. HSF officers regularly complain about the helmets visors which can crack or even shatter (making for rather gruesome eye injuries).
