M44 Oakleaf Helmet Cover*:


Reproduction Waffen SS Helmet Cover in Oakleaf camouflage. This "M44" designation is totally fictitious- we created it in 2018 to identify the late War variations of the SS helmet covers, made with heavily shaded parts and steel clips. This batch of covers was made using leftover oakleaf pattern cloth we had made in 1999 in New England. We have 3 distinct shades, which were rather laboriously sorted to insure that all of these covers have main panels that never match- which is very characteristic of the helmet covers made in 1944-45. All covers are made using parts cut from 3-5 actual shades, using 2-3 different colors of thread, and all of this batch will have at least one mis-print (white streak or ink smear)somewhere on them. Finally, we had exact reproductions of the WWII steel rocker clips, in phosphate gray finish made in Ohio. These are attached with original WWII steel rivets I've hoarded since 1997.

Several WWII covers are on hand for pattern and assembly reference at all times. These covers are assembled here in our shop and all are inspected and test fitted to original helmet shells to insure proper fit. We opted not to have them sewn overseas due to the fact that there are at least a dozen ways to jack up an SS cover to the point it won't fit on anything.

Sizes: Originals came in three sizes, numbered 1-3. We offer only 2 and 3 since size 1 is tiny and the demand is nil.
Size 2: Will fit original shells in sizes 62, 64 or 66. It also works well on the reproduction M42's we sell.
Size 3: Works well on original size 66,68, and 70 shells. They also fit the IMA and Reddick 68 shells (which are larger than originals.)
