Vietnam Helmet

The M1 helmet is an essential item for soldiers in Vietnam. It protects them from debris, the sun, and the rain. But it also serves them in their daily lives as a basin for shaving or as a cooking pot when times are tough.

  • Vietnam Helmet paint

    This complete Vietnam-style helmet is painted with 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-like over time and wear, just like original helmets.

  • Vietnam Helmet texture

    The M1 infantry helmet shell, Vietnam type, is smooth and sold with a helmet cover.

  • Vietnam Helmet chin strap

    The chinstrap of the helmet is a Vietnam-type reproduction made by Mon Casque M1 with woven strap copied from the original model of the time. The metal hardware is post-war military origin.
