    Hi what is a good price to get one of these helmets for? Ive been offered a Lightweight Helmet for $100 with the MARPAT reversible cover and the night vision bracket on front. Im thinking this is a steal at this price but i wanna be sure... Any ideas?

    Thats a reasonable price for a LWH, they go for 150-200 on ebay on average.

    Okay awesome! Im trying to figure out the condition of the straps and if it has a good helmet pad system. Guy used it in Afghanistan. Tried to grab it for $75 but he said no lol

    Well im going to grab it now. He said its all in good condition except for the Afgan dust on it (lol). He's also throwing in a FROG battleshirt, score! I figure the LWH and a FROG shirt is pretty good for $100!

    x2 that's a steal! My local surplus shop wanted $75 for a thrashed LWH that didn't even have a complete suspension system or cover... so you definitely made off with a deal.

    The FROG shirt turned out to be just the long-sleeve undershirt lol. Either way though i think im gonna snap it up from the guy. Worse case i can always resell it and make a few extra bucks lol. BUT I do need a replacement for my USMC PASGT Smile
