US Advanced Combat Helmet ( ACH )

Recommended Posts

US Advanced Combat Helmet ( ACH ) in field used condition it was devoid of all tags and the stampings and the dome is obscured by strips of Velcro, I did manage to pull the Velcro back a we bit and remove a bit of contact cement to reveal a small production label I have found but two other references on line that indicate this type of label can be found in helmets produced by MSA in this time period it is so marked ( S1GVTE-26 and dated to 2007--09-05 )...

It is sporting a Team Wendy Cam Lock Retention System and upgraded with Team Wendy Epic padding and has been outfitted with a low profile universal shroud and a Norotos Rhino nvg mount..

It has seen a fair bit of service and has been over painted at least twice in its service career and I am of the opinion the camo was applied by painting through a laundry bag in the field.. There are remnants of removed Velcro strips on the exterior of the helmet body that have been painted over...


Regards Mark

Great helmet.  I have one with similar camo patterns as well as an M4 magazine with the same pattern.  I read that the pattern is common with SF and 75th Rangers.
