    PASGT Helmets

    Post by mk1rceme on Wed Mar 06, 2013 12:56 pm

    Not Canadian, but used by Canadians during peacekeeping missions. Sorry about the covers...I don't have a UN cover for these yet.

    I just got an XL sized K-pot and wanted to show the size difference...this thing is massive compared to a large size!

    Canadian Used PASGTs

    Post by edstorey on Wed Mar 06, 2013 3:45 pm

    Here are a couple from my collection. This first one is a surplused example that I bought in 1996.



    This second one I wore in Canada from 1995-2000.



    The third one is the one that I was issued and wore in Croatia from May 1993-May 1994.

    Nice lids Ed! After digging around a bit, I guess I do have a UN cover...it is one of the trial covers with the elastic around the edge. I will have to see if it will fit this XL pot.

    Not a chance...this cover is a medium size. Oh well, the search continues.

    Nice lids Dale and Ed!! Dale I have a small sized PASGT in my collection, It is tiny compared to my medium ones I think It would almost fit inside your XL one like the liner in a ww2 M1 Very Happy

    I have a rather large melon, size 7.75, and the XL looks goofily huge on me. I would like to see all the sizes lined up for comparison...that would be a neat to see.

    This is the one I was given to wear when shuttling vehicles around with the AOA MCU boys. I was never so happy as to be able to leave my green lid in my living quarters and NOT feel like a moron taking it to and from Canada 15. Since I rode a bicycle, I looked like a dork with a green lid. It was also nice to finally not have to stop to clean that dust out of my eyes. LMAO

    PASGT vs CG634

    Post by edstorey on Wed Mar 13, 2013 4:01 pm

    Cliff:

    Nice helmet, but it is a Canadian manufactured CG634 and not the earlier US manufactured PASGT. By the time Canada was involved in Afghanistan, the PASGT had been replaced by the CG634.

    Huh! Learn something new every day. A couple people told me it was a trial cover. I should be asking the right people here on our forum!

    Yeah Ed, you are of course correct, and I know you know that. LOL I was not paying much attention to headings or even the photos when I posted this. I am afraid I may never recover from this brain rot that is 202WD.

    Brain Rot!!

    Post by edstorey on Wed Mar 13, 2013 7:16 pm

    Cliff, I would have thought that 202WD would be a great place to work, lots of cool kit to look at every day. You were pretty mellow a couple of years back when you were working hard in the Kandahar heat, no brain rot there.

    I was issued an PASGT helmet when posted to 1PPCLI in 84. As part of the trials, half the Coy got PASGT, the other half Israeli helmets. By far the Israeli helmet was the popular choice. I will see if I can find pictures.
