Without the benefits of a flip-up style helmet, that answer is no how. In the market to replace my aging yet favorite workhorse helmet, the Icon Alliance , we ordered up the reasonably priced Fulmer M1 Modus for testing. The M1 Modus is available in 15 color combinations ranging from flat black to our wicked Blue Trident. Unlike an earlier version of the Modus, tested by our old pal Eric Bass, both the head liner as well as the cheek pads are removable on the new M1 Modus helmet. The cheek pads are held in place with snap links, and the head liner utilizes sewn-in plastic edging that slips in between the outer shell and foam interior. The D-ring retention strap has also been updated to include the familiar plastic snap used to harness the loose, whipping end of the retention strap. Fulmer offers a wide range of faceshields; along with the standard clear shield and typical smoke versions, Fulmer offers High-Def Blue and Yellow, a black-to-chrome graduated mirror finish and solid mirrored finishes in black, blue, ice blue and fire. For cold-weather riding or snowmobiling, Fulmer also offers shields in dual-pane and electric versions. Plug in the heated shield for snowmobiling and swap it out for a smoke when you take the motorcycle out in the spring. Ventilation is done with the simple flip of the chinbar or faceshield, as well as via the simple and flimsy and quickly broken lip vent that has just two positions — open or closed.

Barnes and Major Brendan L. In this article, we will do the same for the M1 helmets found in the same warehouse. The M1 helmets as they were removed from their storage bags and placed on the armory floor before sequence numbers were assigned. Under the guidance of the 28th Adjutant General of Virginia, Major General Timothy Williams, we performed an inventory and analysis of the helmets in order to properly account for them and to share our findings.
We know that there are many people interested in the multitude of variations of M1s that were produced by the United States from WWII until after the end of the Vietnam War. What follows in this is our collaborative process of documenting, preserving, researching, and interpreting these materials to share their significance with the public and other historians. Over the last few years, these helmets have migrated from being considered surplus scrap metal to becoming very collectible.
A sample of the helmets showing the different paint shades and textures: The large amphibious re-enactment took place at Fort Story, near Virginia Beach. The Virginia National Guard recovered 32 of these helmets, all in various states of condition, ranging from very good all the way to very rusty. There were no chin straps on any of the helmets.

The net is secured under the arms, with four long cotton ribbons. They were often used as an ordinary helmet cover with the net stuck up under the liner. After the war, large quantities of them were repackaged, possibly for use in Vietnam.
History[ edit ] The M1 helmet was adopted in to replace the outdated M A1 “Kelly” helmet  after research was done in the s by Major Harold G. The M1 was phased out during the s in favor of the PASGT helmet ,  which offered increased ergonomics and ballistic protection. It should be noted that no distinction in nomenclature existed between wartime front seams so-called due to the location of the seam on the helmet’s brim and post war, or rear seam, shells in the United States Army supply system, hence World War II shells remained in use until the M1 was retired from service.
In Israeli service, reserve soldiers have used the M1 helmet in combat as late as Helmet covers and netting would be applied by covering the steel shell with the extra material tucked inside the shell and secured by inserting the liner. The outer shell cannot be worn by itself.
