Luftwaffe LKpN101 Netzkopfhaube

The famous \'net\' or \'mesh\' top flying helmet. This proved popular with Luftwaffe aircrews as it was designed for comfort and without a chinstrap. This example is the earlier variant having attachment points for just the 2-strap oxygen masks. It has dark brown leather earcups and banding with lighter tan \'mesh\'. The neckline has integral spring elastication to improve fit. All of the leather parts are very good and the netting on ly has a few small holes. The avionics are complete with the longer type wiring loom, round Mi4c magnetic type throatmicrophones and four-pole break coupling. One of the plastic \'soundboards\' is missing. An excellent helmet. Stock code H16162.
