thanks mark!! is it better than what we use cos when ours are full of twigs and leaves surely that does the same job. dont they flap around over the eyes a lot? They just seem to be a bit impracticle but they must work if they still use them. i aso saw they only wear one colour camoflage whereas everyone else seems to have dpm - is what they wear special to wear they operate cos i dont suppose the isrealis can really deploy anywhere else can they?

Leaves and twigs tend to be a bullet magnet in the middle of the Negev desert!

I've wondered that myself, the cover is made of some sort of mesh, it would be easy enough to gather at the back with a safety pin. Stockpot Boy is smarter than he looks; who could stop laughing long enough to fire an aimed shot at him?

This is a pretty great idea for a thread well done. On the 10 O'Clock Show last night they showed a load of these barmy bowlers. My favourite was the guy who'd taped bread rolls to his head!! I mean maybe it was a protest to his wife's cooking I don't know.
This fella you mean........fed up with rioting....have a bite of your helmet!
