FEATURES: Gentex Cloth Helmet Liner. We believe this cloth liner is from the 1940's/Korean War era. We believe this to be for a United States Navy pilot. The inside product label on the backside of liner states Gentex, General Textile Mills, Inc. New York, NY USA Pat.
They ear coverings are black rubber on the exterior and a padded moss green velvet on the interior. The 3/4 chin strap has a black metal snap and a tri-glide buckle for size adjustment. There is another adjustable ribbon type strap at the very back, down by the neck, it too has a black tri-glide buckle for size adjustment. There are four panels of very fine mesh netting, two above the ears and two on the top of the head. The black rubber around the ears on the exterior is to aid in keeping headphones comfortably in place.
There is a very soft, like lambskin, thin layer of leather on the inside of the cloth piece that covers the forehead. This is a super cool helmet liner and it is in excellent shape!
