AUSA – Airborne Systems Part II

I thought some of you jumpers might be interested in this parachutist helmet from MSA Gallet exhibited by Airborne Systems. It is a derivative of a Gallet helo helmet.

    MFF-specific helmets are a step backwards. Integration with the ballistic helmet is the way forward. IMHO.

      Exactly, most of the new helmets coming out have attachment points for the O2 mask, and provide ballistic protection when you hit the ground, I really see no use for this item. I still have to have my combat helmet in a bag for when I insert, so why use this. Both OPS CORE and CRYE Airframe are completely compatable with O2 through the use of rails.

    Not sure how that shield will keep wind from going into my eyes at 120MPH, seems like I would still need to have eyewear on making the shield redundant. Looks like large gaps at the side and bottom, and not a tight seal on the face.

    I concur with what has already been said. It bothers me that companies still make military jump only gear that has no applicability to the battlefield. I guess you can’t really blame them though, there’s still military units allowing their Free Fallers to jump as if they’ve just been ejected out of a fighter plane. The most common configuration for a Free Faller until recent times is a Gentex or PM HALO helmet, a flight suit and no combat equipment. I guess it’s the perpetuation of this by way of the industry and non-tactical military jumpers (<how is that even allowed to happen?) that is the most frustrating.
