    From these pictures I'm not liking the drippy camo. But the picture quality is not the best.

    Camo's are more faked than real. Not sure if this is a first helmet or if you have a lot, but if you are new to helmets, stay away from camo helmets and stick with helmet that are easier to confirm.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    It is almost impossible to be sure if a helmet is real camo or not. I personaly prefer to have genuine items i my pile. I hate looking at my treasures and amongst them there is ONE "maybe" genuine.

    Try to build you collection with TOP items. It doesnt mean the most expencive items, it means as genuine and complete as possible.
