    Nice Sun Helmet Visor.

    Taka-San knows his stuff. Here are two other posts (one is mine for a helmet I just purchased a few weeks ago) that should provide some additional information.

    Japanese Cloth Pith Helmet

    Alain,

    Yours is a beaut as well. In fact, looks better than mine. The one I have has some small stains (which I kinda like).

    Yours has a much better look in my opinion. I try to get salty japanese items, and mint german items. I do prefer issued, been there look....like yours.
