The iconic US M1C WW2 helmet is synonymous with American paratroopers. With its legendary silhouette, it represents the image of the US airborne forces throughout World War II and until 1985. This particular model is the M1C version with swivel loops.

Shell

M1C US WW2 paratrooper helmet shell reproduction based on an original Austrian steel helmet shell and produced between 1975 and 1990. It features a rear rim seam and swivel loops. 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. The shell has a granular coating thanks to the addition of cork during the painting process.

Replica Liner

Recent plastic reproduction of the M1-style liner. Similar to the US M1 model with a headband, front eyelet, and brown faux leather chin strap. Modified with added A Yokes to secure the leather chin cup.

Fiber Liner

Compressed fiber M1-style surplus liner from Belgian origin (ABL). With headband, brown leather chin strap, and neck band. Also features the typical front eyelet of American liners. Modified with added A Yokes to hold the leather chin cup

Keep in mind

All of our helmet shells are made of steel and are surplus military equipment. Some are over 50 years old. They may show signs of use and aging due to storage. Although they are repainted and refurbished, some evidence of their past use remains visible.

Size

The liner is one size fits all, but can be adjusted in depth and head circumference.

M1C Paratrooper Helmet

The M1C helmet is a crucial component for paratroopers. It shields them from debris, sunlight, and rain. In everyday life, it serves as a basin for shaving or a cooking pot in difficult times.

  • M1C Paratrooper Helmet paint

    This paratrooper helmet is painted using a paint based on the shade used by the American army between 1936 and 1944. It has a matte finish that will tend to become satin with time and wear, just like the original helmets.

  • M1C Paratrooper Helmet texture

    The M1C paratrooper helmet is coated with a "cork" texture to closely match the original models. This coating was used to break up the soldier's silhouette and reduce sun glare.

  • M1C Paratrooper Helmet chin strap

    The helmet chin strap is a paratrooper reproduction made by Mon Casque M1 with woven strap copied from the original model. It also has snap buttons at the ends for attachment to the liner. The metal hardware is post-war military issue.
