    You are right, nothing else needed, direct plugin to the brain.

I have a few DIY "miner's helmets" with permanently mounted headlamps for hands free safety work ....
    Illini Warrior makes a VERY good point about the hard hat for recovery work.

    You can get a face shield on a military helmet .

    Ahhhh, yes! The good ol' steel pot.
    You can wash in it; dig an emergency foxhole with it if your motivation is strong enough, such as incoming fire; use it as a parking brake for a jeep; sit on it; carry water from the stream in it; carry your cigarettes and a bottle of gun oil under the elastic band that is designed to hold branches to help you look like a bush; and many other uses.
    Draw backs - in the monsoon rains the rear lip seems designed to pour even more water down your neck than it is already getting; don't fasten the chin strap or any close by explosions can give you a concussion; running requires one hand holding your rifle and one holding the pot on your head; and they are heavy.

    I'd like to have one. Just to sit on the shelf, so I could gaze upon it in my old age.

    Yes, get the best one money can buy.

    BUT...

    Wear it ALL the time.

    If you don't, I...er...someone...will wait until you walk out of your homestead to take a leak or grab a smoke and send 168 grains of .308 projectile at 2700fps into your unprotected noggin.

    Then get all your stuff and take a dump in your commode.

    Just sayin'

    We have black mil surplus. I doubt they'll stop much but if challenged I want them to see them thru their optics and recognize our boat intends to fight back.
