Great idea, think I'm gonna try it

Post up pics if you do it. So far I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

Just one wire, I ended up covering it with a Velcro strip.

Actually they are bump and impact rated above any skateboard type helmets. I do not have the actual spec with me, but we are on the process of getting it form the manufacturer. The specs are set from Mil requirements. Hope this helps.

Vic


So Im gonna take a stab and say that this means the average skateboard probably wouldnt hold up. Kind of a bummer but oh well. Im still in the thought process of it what to get and where to get it.

I wouldn't discount using one. I used to have a half pipe in my back yard and whacked my head more than once. This was the early 90s' and I'm sure the helmet technology has come a long way since then.
If your looking to run anything other than ballistic I don't know that you would need "mil spec".
I bought my Bell Raction at Sports Authority.
Vic does have some nice stuff though!

Those of you with PT helmets and PVS7/14's... I'm not seeing any counterweights, and mine is extremely front heavy and hard to keep stable. I find the helmet sliding a bit during use and making the pvs dip forward. Any tips?

Velcro can be purchased from supply captain's store.

I picked up a ACH helmet, but it's a color that doesn't fit in well with the rest of my gear. Can you just spraypaint these things, or is there a preferable way of doing it to modify the color?

I liked it, too, but it appears they are no longer in business. Am I wrong?

I have been looking into getting myself setup with a nice night vision setup and was curious as to what you guys were paying for your rigs on average

All I really want is a quality night vision setup "goggle or monocular is fine" and a quality helmet with secure mounting.

Thanks

Top of the line PVS-14... About $3700 or so. To many helmet and mount options to even offer a estimate. Many to choose from and application is the key ! Call TNVC. Top notch guys and products. They don't cut corners and offer the best available !

That be a NV clip on compass and that little pad at the top (er bottom when flipped down) is the pressure pad. These have since been halted for production with error induced readings because of the magnetic NV monocular cut off switch interfering with the compass readings. It does not do this on all the units, but the military complained enough though. Hope this helps.

Vic


I gave my compass away. The thing never worked out of the box. Maybe I just got a dud. Just as easy to keep a small compass in your pocket or vest if needed IMHO.
