Sadly yes? I can fathom spending the cash on a real OPS Core for Airsoft but an 800 dollar helmet for airsoft is a tad too much hahaha. The replica looks just as good. I was thinking about getting one but meh lol. If I were to get one, I would get the real straps for it.
<AT>Bob, is that a David Clark Headset boom mic light? My squadron issued those to us for when we are flying haha, I happened to put mine on my helmet as well as a flash light is easier for me to use than extra crap on my headset.
That's why I have a replica.
However, I always like having real gear. Plus, an AirFrame would make an excellent addition to my SHTF kit; I'd rather have that than a MICH for sure.
As for the straps, the ones the TMC helmet come with are pretty good, but I'd guess the real OPS Core would fit a bit better (never used them).
And you mean the Base Jump, right? 'Cause the Carbon is $600, and the ballistic is almost $900, heh.
