All helmets, liners, clothing and accessories sold by Top Pots are tendered as historical collectables and sold for display purposes only.
They are not to be used as safety equipment for any kind of activity,such as horseback riding, motorcycle riding, rappelling, skydiving and (God forbid) actual ballistic protection, etc… . These helmets are over 75 years old. Though beautifully restored, they are meant only for the mantle place, museum pedestal or living history display and not as protection for your head, neck and body.
Purchase of any item from Top Pots is an acknowledgement of being briefed on this fact and is a liability release from for any injury that may arise from misuse of these items.
Just a quick note to say we are in the final stages of importing what may be one of the last large caches of original US WWII M1 helmets and liners (full cargo container full). To say this, along with being forced to run every strand of yarn on the three 80 year old original shuttle looms we had, has been a distraction the past 18 months, is putting it mildly, but we pulled it off.
All current custom helmet and clothing orders are being processed and will be updated as they go out the door.
More info, pics and video on the import and the final helmet webbing production will be posted over the next few months. At the moment we gotta get caught up on helmets... and make space!
