    Default Coastal KM Camo

    Now to show you all what a real camo looks like. This IS real, several experts have had it in hand (not me, as I own it )

    It really is a sweet one, named twice, once on the lip, and once inside at the top.

    John-
    great helmet. I have noticed that the majority of camoflaged helmets have the owner's name written in the skirt. I presume the reason for this was these were turned in at a depot where helmets were painted enmasse. I have also noticed that helmets that appear to be field painted often lack this feature.

    Thanks Bob, and to the rest also. I suppose that theory is right Bob, maybe why it was named twice? Just a thought.

    I've always believed this to be a KM lid, anyone want to throw any theories out? I'd be intrigued to know. There's not much left of the decal, It's an ET shell so it's plausible.

    I could take some micro shots if it would help?

    Thanks again. I like it
