    Default British helmet opinion - buy or not buy?

    Hello folks!

    Next week is my birthday and I'm looking for a gift for myself.

    Based on Perun303's post, I'd like to know your opinion about the helmet below, chin strap, camo cover and how much would you pay for it.

    This are the photos:

    Personally ive not seen a hessian cover with machined foilage slots , imo that was what netting was for , im not even certain these were purposely manufactured , i thought these were put togrther by the individual wearer of the helmet , i have one with hand sewn pleats so it fits tightly to the helmet , but no foilage loops , see if Tinlid responds
