Original U.S. 1980s HGU-84/P Size Large Flight Helmet with Avionics, Extra Visors & Carry Bag
Original Item: One-of-a-kind. Per the Gentex Website, the HGU-84/P was:
Designed by Gentex for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, the Gentex HGU-84/P Rotary Wing Helmet provides protection and comfort in a lightweight, low-profile design. In addition to the unique bungee-style dual visor capability, the HGU-84/P easily integrates with Gentex performance enhancing accessories to provide industry leading comfort, stability, retention, and protection.
The helmet is a widely used design, and looks to still be in production today.
This example is on very good condition and consists of a Gentex manufactured HGU 84/P Flight Helmet in size LARGE, with an intact manufacturer tag under the lining. It has complete avionics, with headphones, microphone, and even some type of transmitter in the back. The helmet is definitely designed for rotor wing / helicopter use, and has both a clear and tinted visor attached. These are attached with elastic straps to stacked snaps on the sides of the helmet. The chin strap for the helmet is intact and functional. The helmet outer shell is entirely covered in white retro reflective tape, something we see often, which makes the helmet very visible in the light when it is dark.
The helmet comes with a very nice original carry bag, named to BRODERICK, the same name that is marked on the back of the helmet. There are spare visor pockets in the bag, each with two visors in them. One pocket has two visors like the ones installed on the helmet, and the other pocket has two visors for a different helmet configuration, both in protective cloth sleeves.
A great display flight helmet from the 1980s, complete with some great accessories, ready to add to your collection!
