    I like the German Stahlhem myself. Distinct look, descendant of the WWI helmets. And it is almost recognizable around the world whenever one is seen. A close second is WWI US helmets. The quintessential US helmet.

    Definitely the Stahlhelm...I got my first one (M42) when I was 10 and I was the most ecstatic I've ever been over anything...drove my mother insane until she bought it for me.

    Stahlhelm also for me, 1916-1945.

    It's a beautiful disease that I'm happy to have

    Stahlhelm + 1, nothing compares in my opinion

    I know they are not rare but I really like the Swiss M18 helmets. They have such a futuristic look about them and IMO are great quality.

    For me its the M38 Fallschirmjäger .......way at the top. Then second place goes to the USGI Kevlar PASGT and you know the germans would have loved it

    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    That’s a hard question. The stahlhem to me was the most practical, and well designed for protection.
    But I think the M1 is up there, just for its design, the fact it could be used for other purposes other than head protection.
