Restoration of an ACH


Recommended Posts

Hard to believe, but the ACH is approaching 20 years of service soon. I found a shell that needed some help and gathered enough parts to restore it. 

The shell is a MSA with original black straps and buckles. I found used black and green MSA pads and NOS green eye-wear retention straps. 

On top is a black label and strap MSA reversible cover. The goggles are desert tan, but whoever Garrett was, he had a sense of humor.

I'm still looking early green/black goggles. Opinions and feedback? Thanks!

Nice family of woodland helmets...the Dover AN store had boxes of goggles...will see what they have...in black or green strap...


Thanks! Looking at the dates, that's 20 years of evolution from 1983-2003. That's my Kevlar in the middle that I wore from 1991-1994.

I was told the early goggles are green frame and black strap.
