this is the one the 101st might get before Iraq.



There is no more sweat band or webbing. There is foam pads like a baseball or motorcycle helmet.

Well it took about 90 years but it looks like we might actually have a comfortable helmet.

I will let you know how it is when we get it. Those sweat bands have always made me mad. I think those coupled with MILES gear were the source of all my headaches in the field.

Hm..
You're aware that Swiss are from Switzerland, and Swedes are from Sweden??

Here's a few pictures of the Norwegian Helmet:

It's similar to the Swedish helmet, so you can turn the cover inside-out and get a white winter camouflage helmet when you need that..

oh man does this helmet feel good. Without MILES gear, you can barely tell you are wearing the thing. Inside you have a series of 7 pads which you can adjust to your preference.

Anyone got any questions?
