Color and exact position of
scrim will vary!
Liner and all internal parts
are brand new.
We are now able to offer a very affordable reproduction of the helmets worn in "Band of Brothers" by the paratroopers of the 101st Airborne, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. These are constructed like the helmets worn by Easy Company during the battles in Normandy. All parts are new reproduction except the steel pots which are real US military issue. Externally, they look almost identical to WWII jump helmets. The liners are dark olive drab plastic reproductions, that we have converted to Jump Helmet configuration.
Comes completely assembled and ready to wear. (You may have to adjust the sweatband to fit your head.)

These helmet shells are NOT brand new.
We cannot guarantee these to be completely free of dings, small cracks, scratches, or a rough spots.
All U.S. helmets are assembled using military surplus steel pots. That means that they all saw service. Although we repaint and refurbish them, some evidence of their past use or wear is likely. They are in good to very good shape, but not 110% flawless.
US Helmet "Sizes"
Unlike German helmets and modern day Kevlars, the M-1 M-1C and M-2 helmets and liners come in only one size. The sweatband in the liner adjusts to fit your head via a slide buckle like some baseball caps. Thus, one size fits all. If you get a helmet and it's too tight, you simply need to adjust the sweatband. It's very, very simple.
