    MK4 lid with Mk5 liner (Turtle shell)

    Hi Guys.

    Here's a typical example of the kind of lid worn in the Falklands by the British sqauddie.

    This is a Mk 4 Lid,fitted with the later Mk 5 liner which is a lot more comfy over the old Mk4 liner.!

    Very neat helmet, but I must say the liner piece looks like a stretched Army sock! lol!

    Thanks again Ben.


    Your not far off on this one, lol!
    Basically the design is a stretchy tubular material,that fits over the inner cradle and is held in place by the spider of the liner,and is held in place with snaps.

    I have posted a pic to show you what I mean

    It looks more comfortable than the standard MK6 liner... I tried my helmet on when I got it and the cloth adjuster ring at the top always makes my head feel weird because of how messed up my hair gets! Laughing

    Yeah,this liner is probabaly one of the comfyist liners the Brits ever developed,except for when it's wet of course.

    And they take ages to dry out too.

    cheers Ben Wink
