Original M83 South African Paratrooper Helmet

Made in South Africa and issued to South African Paratroopers, the M83 Kevlar helmet was built with the design of the successful Israeli Orlite helmet in mind. The outer of the helmets are textured and earthy brown (Nutria) in colour with a black rubber rim around the bottom. Internally, the helmets have a leather sweatband with adjustable webbing, which has a maximum head size of 55-57cm. Each helmet has a 3 point chinstrap, complete with metal buckles. The metal buckles and screws are rusted so great care should be used when adjusting the size.

Product features:

  • Textured nutria brown exterior
  • 3 point chin strap
  • Leather sweatband
  • Adjustable up to 55-57cm.

These are fantastic helmets but as expected, due to their age there is some wear on the exterior, and corrosion to the metal buckles. They would still make an excellent addition to your collection, and still very much look the part for military reenactment purposes.

Please note, these are surplus items and as such the condition and quality varies from product to product.
