Any suggestions for an inexpensive bump helmet to use with my PVS-7 ? I see Lancer, PT, and G-Force out there in the airsoft world but do not know which would suffice for my needs. I like the 1/2 shell or FAST style and need a shroud that will fit a Notoros. I have read that a lot of the Chinese stuff out there have shrouds that do not fit properly. Any feedback is appreciated. I am looking for something sub $100

I have a Lancer and it's ok but after about 4 miles it was really starting to get uncomfortable.

There is another one that SOT recommended to me but I forgot the name of it. I'm going to get that next to see if it's better.

Does anybody make a bump helmet that is not vented? I would love a lighter helmet, but it rains enough in Oregon that I like that my ACH doubles as a rain hat.

Me too. Need something a bit more covered. When its cold or rainy, or both, i go to my ACH. But then, i no longer have the lightweight comfort of the opscore.

As with many things in life, duct tape shall provide! 

(Or masking tape if you are even more temporary and don't want to scrub adhesive forever.)

... or just a sheet of plastic under your helmet cover, if you have one.

I gave serious thought to a night cap, but stuck with bump helmets. Here in the woods, I am forever bumping my head and, rarely, tripping.
DSG has the Pro Tec bump helmets on sale for 40 and 50 bucks right now.
I run a TNVC Ops Core, which has a mount molded in and is much more expensive. It looks like the PT requires you supply your own shroud and seem to be designed for it.

What's the deal with Ops Core / Gentex and when will they get their act together re shipping helmets on time?
