    Re: belgium m71 parachutist helmet

    Re: belgium m71 parachutist helmet

    Kris thank you very much. I was hoping it was just that simple and that there was not some type of adopted "standard" tube and dimension that would be next to impossible to replicate. Looks like...

    Re: belgium m71 parachutist helmet

    Krikke, if I may, I'd like to take advantage of the fact that we have a first hand user of the M71 and ask you a question regarding the rubber band on the helmet. Of course we read all the time...

    I have to say, this sure has turned out to be a great thread highlighting a couple of seemingly under appreciated helmets. Thank you all for the great input and the photos! Russ

    Re: belgium m71 parachutist helmet

    Re: belgium m71 parachutist helmet

    James, it is plain, no bells and whistles. We'll keep our eyes peeled for a nice cover for it and maybe make up a rubber band. Had my eye on one all dressed up but it was quite expensive. I will...

    Re: belgium m71 parachutist helmet

    James, I share your sentiments. This "helping" with the kids collection has certainly turned into a bit of a "helmet" thing for me as well. Several of the high dollar lids I'd like to put on the...

    Re: belgium m71 parachutist helmet

    Could it be that the Belgians simply wanted the best of both worlds with the W German M1A1 Para shell being superior to the French F1 Shell and the French F1 liner being more to their liking than the...

    James, the M71 I purchased was not from the guy in Italy, it was a local eBay purchase and if fact arrived today. I sure do like that camo and banded on however. I'll snap some photos of all the...

    Re: belgium m71 parachutist helmet

    I was considering purchasing the lower pictured M71 and might regret getting the one we just got instead of that nice camo and banded one. He's got a couple other helmets I'd like to have as well. ...

    Another great looking lid James. I have been watching one of these on eBay, for the past week, and believe it or not, just won it about an hour ago. Does not have the camo or band however, as yours...
