Thanks - my main thing about the FAST helmets was the accommodation for ear pro as I plan to use the built in comms system in my Peltor combined with HTs.

Not having been in the Army/et. al. (only the USCG) I did not know the CVC existed.

I’ve used both the MICH (Fritz) style and hi-cut. I much prefer the hi-cut. Recently, I bought this:


I got the version without rails and shroud because I was concerned about quality control, so I got an after market shroud and rails from Opscor. Overall, the helmet’s one of the most comfortable I’ve worn and allows me to train with NVGs and where helmets are required.

Thanx Prefontaine, it's always a build vs. buy question, @$300.00, that's some real coin.

Our "...team...", really enjoyed the exercise. For me, the goal was the journey, letting everyone understand in their own time and way that "...where there is a will, there is a way...", next adventure.... the LACS version of the venerable infantryman's best friend the M203...



You do, of course know what Alient BULLSEYE actually, chemically is?


Sit back, pour two fingers of Bourbon, sip... and ponder the possibilities.....
 
Find a good old K-Pot if you really wanna go LARPin for reals, otherwise, they are just a fancy bump cap!

The old PASGT helmets are a better deal. But also look for surplus CVC(combat vehicle crewmember) helmets if you're going to wear large ear pro and comms, or such. Since I wear ear pro that does more than the foam plugs, I just use an old (mid 00s) ProTec high cut bump helmet thats based on their Alpha Skate series :s0033:

Yup!

Make sure you get some gun mufflers that fit under the helmet as well. I believe he put a on Walkers Razor slim electronic earmufflers.

I picked up a (like new) MICH (fritz) with multicam cover for $130 shipped from the NWFA classifieds... couldn’t pass it up!

They both have the same Velcro padding and H-harness assemblies.

Next to my PASGT bucket...
