Light Weight Helmet

Recommended Posts

i have a lwh sprayed with a tan color. is/was there a lot which was tan or was it sprayed by the pre-owner? cause all others i've ever seen were forest green....

thanks

 

Gentex, which makes the Lightweight Helmet for the Marines, makes a law enforcement version available "a variety of colors: Black, Olive Drab, Green 383, CHP Blue, UN Blue, Desert Tan, and Foliage Green."

 

And for those who don't know, the Lightweight Helmet is standard issue for the Marines. Its look pretty much like the old PASGT helmet and the USMC version looks like this:

Here's a tan version in a configuration designed to provide room for earphones.

By the way, the USMC versions are marked as such on the suspension with an EGA (Marine Corps emblem):

Our Sniper teams / STA platoon spray painted their helmets and most of their gear...standard issue stuff / green and woodland and sprayed them down with a khaki paint. This was in '05 prior to deployment...a LOT of the khaki / coyote / desert issue wasn't yet fielded at that time so they had to make do.

Here's one for a Sniper painted up and named...no longer in my posession, and a "normal" LWH on the right. These are not the factory-made khaki helmets made that way, it's just a normal LWH that a guy painted up instead of wearing his helmet cover in the desert.
