  1. They're great. Next to the 3 piece sleep system and the slave cable power inverter, it is in my top 3 pieces of issued gear.
  2. Hello, I saw you got issued one of the IHPS helmets, do you happen to have an extra cover by chance?  Mine is no bueno so I've been looking for some who would be willing to sell one

  3. Notice variance in NOD mounts. Or lack thereof.
  4. 82nd on a recent (48 hour ago) jump into Colombia
  5. 4th group: with cover and raises front, side, back, inside with some pads removed 5th group: nape interior (Suede), 3M branded locking mech for chinstrap (tow back, two front), J hook attachment for helmet cover and J hook attachment for side rail, side by side ACH and IHPS without a level base or anything to measure against, sorry. You’ll notice in the one with rails versus the one without, the one without rails still has the brown filler screws in the holes where the one with rails has black screws in it holding the rails on. They are just a tad bit longer obviously. For install

  7. For a forward. These are generally only issued now if your orders specified countries currently in conflict, not CENTCOM as a whole. Things I noticed off the bat: the helmet is noticeably lighter. Obviously the cut is different. It generally sits better on the head. After wearing it for the better part of two days my head and neck do not hurt. The sizing is way different; literally all of my guys got a large All of them. Moving pads around adjusts the size And everyone seems to be extremely happy with it whether they wear a small or an extra large. The chinstrap feels cheaper however I dont
  8. Nooo. Didnt you read it was my second favorite thing ever?! But I can post for detail...just need to know what to focus on
  9. We just got these over here. Next to the 3 piece sleep system its the best thing Ive ever been issued. No. The screws for the attachments on the side do not go all the way through. Theyre retainer screws. The helmet cover is very tight in there is Velcro on the shell plus there are clips around the edge that fit around the lip of the helmet. The chinstrap to me feels extremely flimsy and cheap even compared to the army issue one that comes on the ACH. Thats my biggest qualm. Yes the pads are the issue pads but just like my other helmet I stripped out several of them to mak
  10. Canned bulk sausage http://www.shopfoodex.com/beverly-brand-bu...ge-p-34779.html Its basically pork...parts.
  11. Someone did though, NickD! One day he will try to sell it and not get any of that back because At The Front (www.atthefront.com) or someone will buy all the helmet covers, provide ways to tell them apart from originals, and price them around 24.95 or 2 for 48 shipped. I really hope so, just so that guy feels REAL stupid.
  12. Very cool...you don't hear about the balloon guys too much; the advent of the aircraft really overshadowed them a whole lot. Great find.
  13. Bear Creek is right up the road from me...like to see something from so close to home.
