US paratrooper helmets as worn by members of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division (Band of Brothers) made by converting US military steel pots & postwar liners. Externally, they look almost identical to WWII jump helmets. Comes completely assembled and ready to wear. (You may have to adjust the sweatband to fit your head.)
What's the difference between these and the "Reproduction" helmets? The Belgian liners look almost exactly like WWII originals- and they are fitted with high quality ATF reproduction parts rather than the Chinese ones.
-US Army M-1 helmet, postwar, rear-seam, refinished in W.W.II dark olive drab and refitted with khaki paratrooper chinstraps

-Liner chinstrap (ATF Reproduction)
-Sweatband (ATF Reproduction)
-A-yokes & chin cup (ATF Reproduction)
Nets, scrim, and first aid packets available at increased cost, and to be fitted by customer.
These helmets and liners are NOT brand new.
We cannot guarantee these to be completely free of dings, small cracks, scratches, or a rough spots.
All U.S. postwar parts helmets are assembled using military surplus steel pots and liners. These are 40-60 years old. Although we repaint and refurbish them, some evidence of their past use or wear is likely.
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.
