I was in the local Army Navy store today looking around and was asked twice "did I need some help" I enquired about Woodland Pattern Helmet covers. The guy went to a bin of brightly blue coloured cloth and pulled out a Woodland cover. I checked it out and said that it did not look like a real one. (meaning American issued with the correct makers label) The dude replied with "are you saying its fake?" rather abruptly. Oh dear. I felt like I'd offended him but he knows exactly what he has in stock. Turns out the cover was bought by NZDF with Korean M1 made Helmets but never issued.
It has a white made in Honduras label and was only $5 so I bought it. It has been made with Ripstop material which means it is quite thin so would go with my lighter jacket rather than the heavier Uniforms which is what I was after.
This Cap is a Modern BD type. I bought it to throw in the car for work to wear under a hood for when it rains.
The hat below is the hat my partners niece helped me buy in Cambodia. Its the best thing to wear in the sun and rain but is very difficult to pack for travelling.
I might take this hat travelling with me as its supposed to be crushable, packable and floatable. Also very Indiana Jones, lol. Not sure if its going to be too hot to wear though. I might just end up buying a local hat again as we want to go to Cambodia again soon.
