Bravo, send me the link to the completed listing. I really want to add that guy to my good sellers list. You can PM it to me if you don't want these other guys to see.

You would be surprised by the amount of guys running Gen.3 NODs now - so having an IR strobe can be a good idea...

I got a real one because i got it for half the retail (and because I'm a whore), but also because most stobes, including the more common MS2000 and VIP, also work on visible light. I personally carry my VIP on hikes in case of emergency. There's many uses beyond the look :)

I just got my new manta IR strobe...
Made a lanyard for it so I don't loose such a pricey piece

Wey, What color paints did you use for that helmet? Would you even mind doing a quick How to?

Awesome paint job Taliban. I soo want to do that to mine now.

MilanWG May 2nd, 2011 20:24

Thanks ;)

The way I did it was:

1) Made some digital shapes in Illustrator.

2) Printed out the shapes and spayed-glued each one (seven in total) to a thin card-stock (I used a couple old file-folders).

3) I then cut out each shape with a ruler and sharp xacto knife.

4) I was left with seven individual digital shape "cards" - this lets you hold up a different pattern and spray without worry.

5) Taped off the veclro that was already on the helmet and sprayed a good base coat of Krylon tan.

6) First I sprayed a random layer of digital shapes in Krylon brown - then dusted over that with a light mist of Krylon tan.

7) Then I sprayed a second final layer of digital shapes in Krylon brown - then dusted over that as well with a light mist of Krylon tan.

8) After everything was dry, I removed the tape on the velcro and gave it a light mist of Krylon tan - then sprayed random digital shapes onto the velcro with Krylon tan.

I recommend to practice with your stencils first before using them on your helmet. I found it was best to hold the spray can a medium-to-far distance for the best results.
I have some tan adhesive velcro on order to replace the black velcro on the helmet now - but I am like how it turned out ;)

Nice helmet! Thanks for the run down on the how to. I just did mine up but not really feeling it. I think I'll give the digital look a shot. I know you don't care for the Base Jump but it is wayyy better than the Protec, especially with the NV's.

Any who. Here it is:

I have nothing against the Base Jump - I will admit it is a much better helmet than a Protec ;)

But I would rather save the money for a FAST Carbon Helmet.

Definitely give the digital camo a try - would look awesome on your helmet :)

What kind of NVGs are you runnin?

Karma_ May 3rd, 2011 17:12

Yeah, I'll give it the digital a shot and post it up.

The NV is a D-300 Gen2+ mil-spec. The best Gen2 out there, unless it's a 2HP.

Got it from Double Tap Tactical.
