Don't be deceived by the pictures or Evike's description. This thing sucks. A lot. I bought one thinking it'd be great for my applications, but boy, what a waste of my hard earned money. I opened the box when it came in the mail only to find the shell of the helmet cracked. I sent it back, getting a new one in a couple weeks. This one was fine with no cracks. I used it on 2 separate days with my buddies and it stood up fine against the terrain. But somehow, I discovered one day that the strap was torn off one side of the helmet! I was pretty mad cause I spent $25 on this helmet expecting it to do pretty well. I guess I got what I paid for and that's cheap.

Pros:
-looks cool
-replica of the Navy SEAL helmet
-breathable

Cons:
-shell cracks easily
-straps rip easily
-the foam pads are very hard packed and difficult to break in, especially for a guy with a dome like me
-goggle strap doesn't work too well
-it's just a cheap waste of money

I really regret buying this thing cause it barely lasted me a couple weeks. I'm trying to sell mine now with the broken strap, but it won't be easy. Don't buy this thing. Don't be deceived. If you're a hardcore milsim guy like me, then invest in something better. There are so many better options out there. I give this helmet a 2/5.
