    On the idea of escape maps, sort of. I got to keep my helmet when I got back. It wasnt on the books so they let me keep it. Not sure how familiar you are with american gear, but its one of the new helmets, ACU pattern cover, and Night Vision Goggles mount. It's pretty cool. Someday I'll pass it on
