    Good afternoon all,

    I'm a firm believer that one's hat in emergency mode should be a hard hat of some sort.

    Above article gives some history to the US Army's helmet and more current stuff.

    I wonder if the pictured Advanced Combat Helmet protects the neck. VA reports show an increase in neck wounds and this involves that spinal section.

    Not familiar with M1 helmet's brim keeping rain off the wearer's face. Prefer others comment on this. I have biases.

    Adjust the webbing for the gas mask. Check adjustment by running. Surprise !

    That IHPS motorcycle helmet ... Can it be made with nech protection ?

    In eary 2021, reports say civilian firefighters will see on market a 3A helmet. Definitely needed by them nowadays.



    Prep, prep, prep
    and
    factor in safety

    If ballistic protection isn't an issue, why not just using bump helmet. Plenty of mounting points on bump helmet just like any ballistic helmet

    Good morning Varuna,

    In the mid-Atlantic area I'm at, ballestic protection is indeed an issue.

    Here, some parents send their kids to school with a 3A plate in their bookbags.

    got a SWAT type helmet but dont see me using it much if at all.
    I'm in the middle of the English countryside and one good winter storm post SHTF will see us cut off from the rest of the country, it happens regularly anyway even in the here and now.

    Apart from the PPE that I use for forestry work I also wear a bump cap. It looks like any other unbranded baseball cap but it has hard plastic panels in the crown to stop you hurting yourself. I also wear polycarbonate eye protection (sunglasses or shooting glasses) while I'm out in the woods.
