I wear that underneath. For a helmet I use an Austro-Hungarian Pikelhelm looted from a dead guy on the Somme in 1917. Or a Scottish Burgeonet looted from a dead guy in a borders raid near Hawick in 1597... Or a German Coal-Scuttle helmet left me by Uncle Hermann in 1946 after we smuggled him out to Argentina... :shock:

Actually, having read the reviews of those hemets, they seem to have a short strap so better to try before you buy. They also have snow-sports helmets for snow-boarding, skiing etc. which cover the ears, thus saving you from the old Big-Lump-Of-Frozen-Precipitation-Right-In-The-Lughole scenario. Eyeshieds too - don't forget your eyeshields...windblown ice is no fun to the unprotected eyeball.

Long time ago , I was woken up.at around 2am ,and told 20 minutes and your in the water ,i pulled on my thermal undersuit put my hard hat on and donned my rig boots ,the sleet was driving across the Jack up fit deck , I could hardly see , I now fully appreciate the need for goggles
After putting on the freezing cold diving gear I was then lowered over the side and into the North sea ,it was 130ft to the bottom :crazy:
