New Alpha Eagle Helmet Questions?

Recommended Posts

I have an AE helmet with rigid dual visor assembly (incl NVG mount). My personal opinion is that it's the best helmet I've ever worn. I have a rather large melon and bought the max size - no complaints about comfort. Visor quality, area coverage and visor mechanism are all outstanding. I particularly like the feature of the adjustable tension earcups/seals for donning/doffing the helmet and the ratchet adjustment for the nape is a first rate design feature. I also have the volume control knob installed on the left side of the helmet. I've used flex mics before and don't like them, so the articulated wire boom mic was the way to go for me. The mic cord is the curly type plugged into the middle of the back of the helmet - helmet cord never gets in the way. Yes it is a larger profile helmet, but the advantages outweigh the disadvantages in my opinion. I'm 6'1" and was flying a 212. Hope this helps.

I agree loach man. Did you upgrade your liner. That the major reason I resurrected this topic. I'm looking into the Oregon aero stuff aswell.




R0T0R - I did not upgrade my liner. I used the existing fitting pads and liner assembly. By looking at the Oregon Aero liner, it may be a little thicker than your existing liner, so you may have to play slightly with your helmet adjustment for a while until you give the new liner a "memory".
