I saw a few guys discussing this helmet.
What do you think? what are your opinions regarding the future use of this helmet by US Military forces?

ive heard of this before. although i do think it would be alot safer, i think it might get kind of annoying to where. I also so a full face helmet that was suppose to help with explosions. that would be hella annoying.

I thought the concept would be of some use for a "static" deployment, like check points and such. I'm not sure how the cheek weld would work though. I hated the kpots we were issued, and the "new" MICH's we were issued seemed to expose too much. Granted the kevlar helmets were not meant to stop a direct rifle round, merely to protect your dome from shrapnel and other noggin injuring objects.
The concept of facial protection is nothing new, I wore a savephace mask during convoy movements.

It is too expensive when compared to other options out there. It actually is a very lengthy discussion hehe

I think peripheral would be ok, the sides seem to stop where the standard strap comes down which would put the plastic behind the corner of the eye. Really canít tell too much from the pics though. One of those find out when itís on your head things really.

the 'chops' are add ons, so when removed the air frame resembles a 2 piece ops core fast helmet, also that last pic seems to be a MICH type helmet with crye precision 'chops' style face protection added

Good eye on the MICH, aeros. Looks to be a 2000 model.

lol yea I see that. Anyways those "chops" look like they can get very annoying, Id rather just wear a standard 2000 or 2001 model lid.
