    At just under 1kg, that's basically expecting someone to carry out their duty wearing a modified motorcycle helmet on one's head. Hope it comes with a neck brace for those troops who are mechanised.

    You do realise it is not a modified motorcycle helmet? Motorcycle helmets aren't exactly designed to stop small hard pointy things going thru the helmet...
    Everyone who's ever loved you was wrong.
