The helmet is equipped with reproduction chinstraps. It has been sanded and repainted in Olive Drab 7, a color used by the American army between 1936 and 1944.

Pacific Helmet

The M1 helmet is the indispensable element of the Marines. It protects it from debris, sun and rain. But it also serves him in everyday life as a basin for shaving or as a saucepan when times are difficult.

  • Pacific Helmet paint

    The M1 infantry helmet is typically painted with a shade of paint that matches the US army's color from 1936 to 1944. The paint has a matte finish that gradually becomes dull over time, providing an authentic, weathered appearance, similar to the original helmets.

  • Pacific Helmet texture

    The M1 infantry helmet shell was coated with a cork texture that served both practical and aesthetic purposes. The texture broke up the soldier's silhouette and reduced sun glare, providing camouflage and protection. The cork is applied with the paint, making it an integral part of the helmet's design.

  • Pacific Helmet chin strap

    The M1 helmet's chinstrap is a replica created by Mon Casque M1, featuring a woven strap that accurately resembles the original. Although the metal buckles used in the chinstrap were produced after the war, they still provide a secure fastening to the helmet and contribute to its durability.
