    Default New Zealand Army PASGT helmet

    A New Zealand Army issue PASGT helmet, with NZ DPM camo helmet cover. These were used by the NZ Army between 2000 and 2009 when they were replaced with the Australian "Enhanced Combat Helmet", which I understand is made by the Israeli company Rabintex.

    This PASGT from my collection is painted inside and out with a thick layer of matt OD paint, textured on the exterior. Maker marks inside crown just visible, as are the fibres of the kevlar where paint is scratched off inside. I haven't removed the cover to explore more, the cover is fairly faded NZ DPM pattern.

    Not sure of maker as the stamped circular marks are clogged with paint, but the chin straps look US made so may be US manufactured. And it does seem to be an earlier one, as later NZ PASGTs used the chin straps like you show in post #3.
