    Ripstop Jigsaw Elasticated Helmet Cover.

    Post by Gulf91 on Sun Aug 02, 2015 7:45 am

    Apologies for no pics,camera is playing up,hope its just the cable that is dodgy(have a new one on the way).

    Have recently bought a lightweight ripstop cover that has an elasticated edge and one velcro strap to the rear.

    Label is white nylon type material and has the following details printed on it--

    BIMEXCO NV
    POLYESTER/KATOEN
    COTTON POLYESTER
    OD1314
    8415-90-003-9026
    HELMOVERTREK/COUVER CASQUE
    LARGE

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks

    I don't think I have seen any Belgian-issue ripstop covers for the composite helmet, and there are usually three velcro tabs. Also, I don't think that '90' represents any country in the NSN country code system.

    Interesting Andrew.

    Will try to post pics up when the new cable arrives(praying its the cable and not the camera).

    is there any remnants of the two frontal velcro tabs or was it designed with only the one

    I've also never seen a helmet cover in ripstop before. However, I've been continually surprised NOT to see one, so maybe they started making them?

    I cannot quite make out the label, but it looks like an aftermarket item. These, as well as other commercial jigsaw items, are commonly stocked in the Belgian surplus stores I have visited.

    Thanks for posting the pictures!

    Good eye, Andrew. The label says "Large", which is not the sort of thing I'd expect to see on a Belgian item. "L" is usually what they put for Size Large.
