    Great looking helmets there Opex, i love the classic woodland and the choc chip but what the hell were the powers that be thinking of with that ACU!.....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks for looking and your kind words James, my personal favourite is the Desert Storm Pasgt, the chinstrap is missing,but I have been reluctant to replace it as I want to keep original , the cover has the original owners name/number on it which I am pleased about.

    The ACH was an expensive addition at the time, and whilst I am not a massive fan of contemporary helmets as such, it does look great on display ( well if I had space to display it that is !)

    Thanks again ,and much appreciated.

    Thanks for looking Gunny, that's a very good point the pattern is questionable, and a camo I never quite understood, in terms of what environment it realistically suited!!!

    I do have a tigerstripe cover for this helmet, which I purchased for a US SF display!

    My favourite pattern has and always will be choc chip, as it just's screams Desert storm!!!!!


    Thanks again for looking and the comments,much appreciated.

    When ACU first appeared i honestly thought it was some kind of subdued urban camo, when i found out it was a multi environment pattern i was amazed. Hey i love that tiger stripe pattern as well it's a real blast from the past!......BTW you are a really polite guy, it's a shame a few others here don't follow suit!....

    Good point Gunny, like you I assumed it was an urban specific pattern, at least it was finally replaced with Multi-cam, which is now the most copied pattern out there it would appear.

    Oh and thanks, I do try to be polite, if someone has taken the time to leave a comment for me I genuinely appreciate it. I never quite understand why someone would be impolite ??

    And yes Tigerstripe now that's a classic pattern, much copied but cool nevertheless
