    I have to say that i would of thought this was ok apart from those very "even" strike/slash marks on the shell,they make me very suspicious!!! Leon.

    I don't think it has been posted before, I looked in the forum all the way back to January.

    My initial thought is that the camo is fake and artificially worn. The chinstrap, domestamp, and liner look original.

    This is why I stay away from Camo helmets. Some are just so hard to tell for sure.

    Because it is titled "fake alert" we are being told it is???? ..........or it is in doubt?
    I for one can't tell except the liner seems too fresh to me.
    I don't have an foolproof detector so the easiest thing for me is to STAY OUT of the cammo helmet minefield.

    See, already Corey and I have differing opinions on the liner .......

    "My initial thought is that the camo is fake and artificially worn" it looks that way to me too, it looks like the camo paint has been buffed off the high points like the liner pins and vents etc!..

    Good point Dan, I would change the title if I could. The fake alert part I added to show that the helmet is in doubt. I see now that it places bias on the readers. My mistake. Thanks for pointing that out.
