Hi,
I bought an NAF-1092 helmet with ANBH1A receivers from a very helpful forum member last week and have been looking for a set of AN-6530 goggles go with the helmet.
I enquired about these nice original goggles and found that they had belonged to the seller's father, a 20 year Navy veteran.

They should look great with the 1029 helmet, hope you like them...
Cheers, John

I'll be very happy to post photos when the goggles and helmet arrive, here is the helmet, I think they will look pretty good as a set! A big thanks to the forum member who sold me the helmet for putting up with all my questions and everything!

cheers, John

Great pair of goggles with the original pad. Glad to see that you didn't get a pair with the reproduction pad that some guys are selling.
