This is the premier US WWII M1C paratrooper helmet liner A strap webbing on the market. This ten diamond weave pattern material is the only true shuttle loom M1C liner A yoke webbing to be made on a set of original WWII era looms. We produce it ourselves in our factory bay on a set of original WWII era shuttle looms which we purchased and carefully restored.
This M1C jump liner A strap webbing is made from yarn dyed olive drab 7 20/2 resultant count (40 tex) gas mercerized cotton yarn. It features a distinctive nine diamond weave pattern and possess the raw edge finish of webbing made during this time period. We also slightly distress the webbing to make it indistinguishable from any original… especially when paired with original buckles and within an original M1 liner (see pic above).
This is excellent webbing, but the extra diamond was a mistake in our early production run. Is it noticeable? Absolutely not, but we wanted to do this right and corrected the pattern.
If you have bought reproduction M1C A strap material or even a complete M1C helmet liner from another vendor, we are not saying you have wasted your money, but you have. If you have an original liner that you want to restore or convert and want it done right, this is the webbing for you.
To back up our claims, we have included detailed pics of the webbing, the looms, how the material appears when in use and even included a video of the actual material. If that is not enough, we have even included the exact manufacturing specifications for you below. At Top Pots, it’s about M1 helmet preservation... not just restoration.
