    Default New Iraqi Helmet

    Just come home from work to find my first Iraqi Army Helmet had arrived. Really happy with it. Got a nice been there feel to it. Still sand encrusted on the inside.

    Now i can only hope my PASGT is waiting for me tomorrow to finish my display off.

    Thanks for looking

    Looking good! The sand is a nice bonus.
    I do like these things, though between this and the PASGT I think I know which one
    I'd choose to wear!
    Best Regards,

    I always leave the Iraqi dirt in my helmets, it adds to the authenticity because it was like that when it was found

    I agree with all the other members, that is a nice example.

    Is there any Arabic script written on the webbing cradle?
