Facemask and Helmet Combo

Post by ty2610 » Mon Apr 14, 2014 11:21 pm

I was just wondering if anyone knows if this combo will work. I have regular goggles and Bravo V2 Metal mesh for a face mask. I run a black hat to protect my forehead, but I'm looking to upgrade to a helmet. I am looking at a Bravo PJ Helmet, but I don't know if it will actually fit with my face mask. Even if it did fit, where would straps go? Hit me with some of your infinite wisdom please, it would make my life a ton easier. There may be a cheaper and better helmet I'm not aware of, but I would like an ACU helmet to match my load out.

You can find cheaper replica Ops-Core helmets (and more variety) from overseas retailers. Anyways, you can always rig your face mask to the arc rails with some paracord and arc rail adapters (comes with repro Ops-Cores)...

I have my mesh mask attached to the helmet by the include goggle clips that attach into the arc rails

I don't have my face mask with me currently, does it have clips for a helmet?

The clips came with my helmet. They are slotted for goggle straps but you can weave the mask's straps through them with some modification. This is where I got the idea, but I did mine slightly different https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IH1UyggNXt0

I run my facemask with helmet clips as well. I cut the elastic straps that were designed to go around my head to hold up the mask, and used some buckles to attach the helmet clips onto them.

My clips also came with my helmet, and the one you linked to does as well - they are fitted into the accessory rail, right where it bends around the ear.

Yep that's exactly what I did except I used plastic sliders instead of buckles
