Abstract
Helicopter helmets in the Canadian Forces are required in two interchangeable roles, white and camouflaged. At present, helmets used by members of tactical helicopter squadrons are painted green to achieve the camouflage effect. Painting and stripping of helmets are time-consuming tasks which may deteriorate the impact protection of the helmet. It is concluded that the adhesive vinyl coating is superior to the gun tape on the basis of appearance and discolouration of the helmet shells.
