The helmet retains its receiver carriers is fitted with a set of grey sponge rubber ear cushions - these show wear and are a bit dry and \'crispy\' but retain some flexiblity. All straps are generally good and both Bennett buckles have their leather covering. The chin strap is also very good and retains the metal end-piece. The chamois lining is reasonably clean - more on the donuts as usual. Fully labelled. Unwired. Named inside to 2nd Officer R Reis??? ATA\'. The inside of the earpieces are also faintly named \'W.O.House\'. A very good \'+\' helmet. Stock code H15067.
