    You .mil types must have 20 inch necks to support all that stuff. Seriously, is there any indication that too much weight on a lid may result in neck strain or injury, even in something as simple as a fast drive down a bad road?

      Your head is about 5kg without any gear, at 12Gs during a collision that’s 60kg.. I don’t know the math (I remember it from getting my license), but add a couple of kg to that and you’re probably touching 80kg.
      What it is during “fast drive down a bad road” is beyond me, but I’m sure it’s more than the normal G, add a helmet to that and you’re setting yourself up for a good life with the VA.

      While you do have a point you also have to look more closely at the picture because not everything in it would actually always sit on the helmet or on it at all when being worn. The goggles are pretty minimal and would only weigh ounces and aren’t always going to be on the helmet and may be only worn while jumping since they’re so low profile looking. Then there’s the ear pro whose weight is going to be more on the sides of your head than on the top and are also fairly light weight I’d imagine.
