Starting from largest to smallest these are my two 2" nets

First one with no scrim. I wanted to display one of these nets 2" nets in my main collection and I think the helmet and net pair nicely

Next up is the net with "original" burlap. Not 100% on the markings on this helmet (they're made of what looks like masking tape rather than medical tape) but I got the helmet and the net cheap so I decided to have some fun with this one.

Next is a green 3/4" net. Currently I have it on an overpainted NCO marked helmet. The helmet has signs of ghosting from a net of about this size so it's likely something like this was on the helmet in the past.

1/2" kahki net. I currently don't have this one displayed but just threw it on a helmet for some pictures

Next is a slightly different style 1/4" net I have on a FS FB Schlueter. Not sure why but I really like how this net pairs with this helmet

Next up is a 1/4" Canadian two-tone net

Another Canadian net, this time cut from vehicle netting. I have this one on an early FS FB McCord with some wear and tear. The helmet sports a war time field repaint so I felt adding a late war net would make for a nice representation of a helmet that saw use throughout the war.

Last but not least is my 2" net with "Dennison 1944" tag. The tag is a bit worse for wear but is still holding on. I don't have this one displayed and have no plans to display it on a helmet in order to try to preserve the tag.
