Stahlhelm Stamp

For those who don't know about the Stahlhelm, its that "German Helmet" "Biker Helmet". None made any stamps for them. And it was so good that most combat helmets you see them today are based on it. But honestly, i do want a Kevlar/Aramid version of the M1916 or the M1935 helmet. I've never owned one, but if there is chance, even if its in plastic, i'd buy that. :D

Whoever made up the shape of this kind of helmet, was a genius - during WW1, British Brodie and French steel helmet didn't protect head as much as M1916 Stahlhelm.

I wonder, if American M1 steel helmet wasn't based upon the German headwear, since both have similar shapes.

I don't. But there are easy-to-find photos of Armia Krajowa members wearing those helmets - check in Google.

To be perfectly honest, I'd like a helmet that could save me a bullet shot or 2...Most helmets act similar to hard hats: good for protecting your skull from falling debris, but it won't keep out a 9mm bullet. ;p

i'd have my own helmet with aramid and metal on it. even if it destroys my mobility. :D

;p Helmets don't constrict joints, so it doesn't do much to mobility. Plus, the rest of armor absurdly outweighs a mere helmet, even if that helmet were made of pure steel. At worst, it'd give a serious cramp in the neck if there's nothing adequately supporting it aside for your neck and skull.
