Original U.S. Vietnam War / Post War Stripped P64 Liner for the M1 Helmet - Liner, Helmet, Ground Troop’s
Original Item: We just received a decent amount of NOS as well as service used Vietnam Era P64 M1 helmet liners! All liners are more than able to be paired with an M1 shell, or they display just fine by themselves. Condition varies as well as appearances such as; paint colors, decals, with or without suspension, visible markings/stickers and some may not be complete with attachment points and rivets. None of these will have the web rigging installed inside, and are "stripped".
A wonderful opportunity to complete the appearance of your M1 helmets that are without liners!
A new suspension system for the M1 Helmet Liner was introduced in 1964. The new system featured three webbing straps that could each be adjusted to hold the liner at the right height on the head. The liner also had a new neck band assembly, which consisted of a rectangular webbed body with three straps that attached to small buckles inside the liner. The P64 Infantry liner was also the first version not to have a leather chin strap.
Between 1964 and 1969 the new helmet liner was made from laminated cotton duck. However, the P64 liner was also produced in laminated high strength nylon fabric between 1964 and 1974. The nylon helmet liner offered improved ballistic protection and was 2 to 3 oz heavier than the cotton duck version.
Liners were often painted and worn without helmets by various units in Vietnam, such as the Military Police.
