Crye Precision - Airframe Helmet

This thread is over three months old. Please be sure that your post is appropriate as it will revive this otherwise old (and probably forgotten) thread.

Recommended Posts

I'm sure you've all seen these helmets somewhere on the web, and everone probably has their own opinions on it. I just want to know what you guys think of it? Is it the coolest thing you've ever seen? Or is it a little wierd, a little too spartan? (if you can even be too spartan). I personally think they are awsome, and will definately be purchasing somthing very similar (without the huge price tag).

 

So what do you think?

TMC make one that's really quite impressive for the price:

I've swapped out a lot of bits on mine but it's one of the few bits of ACM kit I still own. You'll need to check your sizing of course because it's got a very small amount of adjustment but I think they only make the one size.

 

Review I did of mine a while back:

It looks like a good fit :) did you get any of the extras, like the ear protection or the chops? :)

I have the ops core fast jump helmet, pretty much the same, you can get the side covers etc for it but its hot enough without that!

 

I prefer the look of mine, I don't like the way the front and the back are joined with what looks like a seem

a little too spartan?

1. how do you rest your cheek on the cheek rest while wearing one?

 

2. no.

 

3. I think a spartan would have been quite a embarrassed walking around in full bullet/splinterproof.

 

 

not sure if i hate it as much as I first though. would make great movie probs if nothing else, but I wouldn't want to wear it.

The helmet itself looks fine, very similar to MICH 2001 or a fast jump one. However, With me the jury is still out on the "chops". While I do kinda like the old school Greek/Trojan Helmet look to them and having them in a lain colour rather then MC definitely looks better. It does ave quite a futuristic look to it without making the wearer look like a storm trooper. You would definitely need the whole tacticool MC loadout for them to work though.

Yeah I wouldn't use the actual face protection add-on myself, never going to get a cheek weld like that. The helmet itself is designed in two separate parts for a reason, it increases airflow and helps absorb the blunt force trauma when hit. Obviously the latter part doesn't matter in airsoft, but then plenty of people carry around fake tourniquets/GPSs/armour plates/smoke grenades/plasti-cuffs that are no actual use in skirmishing.
