WWII US Army Reproduction M1 Infantry Helmet Shell Chin Straps - OD 3 Khaki Tan (Shuttle Loom Webbing)

WWII US Army Reproduction M1 Infantry Helmet Shell Chin Straps - OD 3 Khaki Tan (Shuttle Loom Webbing)

 WWII US Army Reproduction M1 Infantry Helmet Shell Chin Straps - OD 3 Khaki Tan (Shuttle Loom Webbing)

This is the premier set of US WWII era M-1 helmet infantry chin straps.  They are simply the best available in the market.  The material is produced from the only still functioning original US WWII era M1 helmet webbing shuttle looms still in existence.

There are a limited amount of these, as we are using the production over-runs of shuttle loomed khaki chin strap webbing for these, as the balance is reserved for our helmets.  Again, all the webbing material is made on a set of original US WWII era shuttle looms that we obtained, purchased, restored and operate ourselves  For more information on what we achieved, please visit our page about WWII ERA US M1 HELMET WEBBING SHUTTLE LOOMS.

These M-1 helmet chin straps have the distinctive 11 row weave, white cotton filler, distinctive raw edges (no needle loom markings on the side) and were woven with the correct mercerized yarn.  The work that was involved in bringing this to fruition is too much to detail here and is explained in the link above.  All we can say is that there is finally a seamless replacement chin strap for any original US M-1 infantry helmet shell... you can do no better.
