    The first 'duckhunter' camo looks to be a genuine WW2 marines helmet cover with it's two tones of rainproof fabric and mosquito net. I've seen them around quite a lot on eBay a few years ago, all in relative good knick. I bought on e for a mere 30 Dollars US , and I may even have it still deep down in the piles.

    The other helmet cover I can't recognize, on the helmet it strikes me as Eastern-European-looking?

    I concur with Saltefanden's ID of first helmet cover - also used to a lesser extent by US Marines in Vietnam.

    That cloth of the second cover is ripstop?!? I don't think I've seen anything like that before. Very odd slots cut into it too. Weird!

    The 1st cover was actually used from WW2 trhu Korea and into early Vietnam. It wasn't a marine thing, but was issued to all branches in tropical environments. Usually, the mosquito net was cut down and tucked and just the camo cover used. In WW2, the marines had a camo cover already before this type was produced. Marine helmet covers do not have the net and are of HBT material. Most the ones like this on the market are Korean War era. This one looks cut down a bit and looks to have had the lower ties removed.. Nice one still in my opinion.
