The PASGT helmet was in use from the 1990's until the adoption of the Rabintex ACH in 2009 (though it hang around for many years after that).
This particular helmet is made by GENTEX though I have also heard of UNICOR helmets being issued as well. Id appreciate any clarification of which was issued, and when.
The cover on the particular helmet is made with a rip-stop material which means it was made in 2008 or later, I have another helmet cover which is identical but made in the previous non rip-stop material (2003ish-2008). Both covers are made by Hills Hats
The covers have elastic sown into the rim and secures to the helmet via 8 pieces of webbing that are sown onto the rim of the cover and are wrapped around the liner of the helmet and Velcro back onto themselves.
This PASGT helmet is very similar to the later ACH cut helmets except they has a slight brim on the front and has a few cm more coverage on the back and sides, it also weighs about .5kg more.
This helmets liner has been replaced with a aftermarket SKYDEX kit, I am not certain if this was done formally. (Input please)
