Originally a World War 2 era design rejected by the H-man himself, the Soviets later picked it up and rolled it out to the East German Army. Just like the Berlin wall, these helmets are just as iconic and closely associated with the people who guarded it. A solid steel shell with gentle slopes - quite nice when laying prone as its pretty hard to dig one into your neck! The helmet straps firmly to your head and has a leather yoke backed with sponge to cushion your head from knocks.
