    I remember seeing that Iraqi used Slovenian helmet up for sale! Glad you wound up it, it really is a nice piece. I'm loving the writing in that Polish helmet, btw!

    I also bought an iraqi helmet (bloodied and battle worn), but its the standard South Korean export. I still have to make up my mind over my favorite, though.

    It's hard to choose a favorite, but I think I have to pick my TC-2001 high-cut ballistic helmet. It's one of my more recent pickups. I bought it from the original owner, a Filipino veteran of the U.S. special forces who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was downsizing his collection and had the newer version of the Special Forces helmet which he was keeping for himself. I got it at a fair price. He remarked that while he got it for free, he paid for it in his sweat and blood. I didn't know he had it until I pulled into his driveway, you could imagine what was going through my mind seeing it from the seat of my car!

    It was made by Sarkar Defense, which is based in the UK. It's the only variation of the helmet I've seen that uses triangular chinstrap webbing connectors. The exposed ballistic material is soft to the touch, and I think the paint is latex based.

    A while ago I missed out on what looked to be a mid-cut TC-2002 helmet. From what I could tell by the pictures, it looked like the real deal. For whatever reason I missed the auction and due to bad pictures and an obscure title, it only went for $60. I'll never know if it was a good one, but now I have something even better!

    I'll post some other views tomorrow, I don't like how the others I took came out.
