Many who have reviewed this helmet say that it is the best reproduction out there. They must have never worn a real helmet of any kind. The padding is terrible; a joke really, which could not possibly last for one single hot day. The straps are simply impossibe. The hardware is total fallapart junk. Better hardware (by far) comes with a 5 dollar kids bicycle helmet from Wal Mart! I do understand the purpose of this helmet, and do not expect a real protective item, but c'mon guys, really. The holes for the NVG mount were drilled off center, every screw in the helmet was loose, some of them were missing, and I had to mess with this helmet for half an hour to be able to wear it. I eventually gave up on the straps and padding that came with it, threw it all away, and put my own straps and padding in. If I had not coincidentally had a set of Skydex ballistic helmet upgrade system sitting around, I would have had to send this helmet back. Totally impossible to wear in any way as I received it. It's just a pity that I had to use a hundred dollar set of pads to fix up a sixty dollar plastic fake helmet. Oh well, it's still 500 bucks cheaper than the real thing, and easier to get. On the plus side, once I upgraded the helmet, it looks and feels great. My recommendation; if you want a nice special-ops helmet reproduction, don't forget to EBay up a set of real pads and straps, (PASGT will work fine) and be prepared for some serious frustration in making them work.
