The iconic US M2 WW2 paratrooper helmet. With its half-moon fixed chinstraps, it was the early headgear of the US paratrooper during World War II. It was quickly replaced by traditional M1 models and then by its successor, the M1C.


Paratrooper M2 helmet shell made with an original Austrian made postwar steel helmet produced between 1975 and 1990. Rear seam and welded D loops. Helmet chinstrap reproductions in OD#3 color. Repainted in Olive Drab 7, the shade used by the US army between 1936 and 1944. The shell has a granular coating due to the addition of cork during the painting process

Replica Liner

Recent plastic reproduction of the M1 type helmet liner. Similar to the US M1 model with a headband, front loop, and brown faux leather chin strap. Modified with the addition of A Yokes to secure the leather chin cup.

Fiber Liner

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

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.


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

M2 Paratrooper Helmet

The M1C helmet is the parachitist's indispensable gear. It protects him from debris, sun and rain. But it is also used in everyday life as a basin for shaving or as a saucepan when times are hard.

    M2 Paratrooper Helmet paint

    This complete M2 paratrooper helmet version is painted using a paint based on the shade used between 1936 and 1944 by the US army. Being matte in nature, it will tend to become satin with time and wear, just like the original helmets.

    M2 Paratrooper Helmet texture

    The M2 paratrooper helmet shell is coated with a "cork" texture in order to be as close as possible to the original models. This coating was used to break up the soldier's silhouette and reduce sun reflections.
