    You glue a black tshirt over the entire helmet, and trim the edges. Then there's a thick elastic band you stretch and glue around the bottom of it. Pretty simple.

    Sorry for the really crappy quality... camera is down so I'm working with the iPhone.... IDF loadout circa 2003-2006 Second Lebanon War... Just need some headgear, but a real Orlite is not in the budget right now, so I may attempt to modify a fiberglass MICH copy by removing the "ears" All comments and criticisms are welcome!

    I dont know how to explain this in English, you need to tuck your pant legs with rubber bands, gomiots. just read this thread you will see all the old recommendations that apply to you already posted.

    What Climber means is you should blouse your boots. The IDF doesn't tuck them into the boot-tops, rather you take some elastic and tie it so it's like a large rubber band able to fit snugly over the boot and onto your leg (without cutting off circulation.) Roll the pant's cuffs around the elastic so they blouse over the boots.

    Thanks this was definitely helpful.... I knew this needed to be done, but was a little lazy in doing it... Now I also have a great visual and it seems super easy

    You don't even need rubber bands if you're REALLY lazy. You can just stretch your socks as high as they will go, and roll the excess down over the tops of the boots. Then tuck your pants up between the sock and boot. Most people lose their elastic bands or whatever at one point in time or another and this is the quick solution.

    I'm 6'2" and a 38" waist it was incredibly difficult to find these pants.... They still feel a little too short...

    lol when I first joined I had elastics, not rubber bands. After a while they got lost and I switched to rubber bands. After a while they got lost and broke, I got hiking boots from my unit, and I never bothered replacing the bands again since I only ever needed them for yetziot.
    I hear ya about the uniform sizes. I needed the bagginess of gimel but the waist of a bet. When I wore gimel the waist was always too large, but if I wore the better fitting bet, I'd always, ALWAYS tear the crotch going down to kriya. Also, we always had a shortage of bet shirts so my gimel shirts were always too baggy. Oh well lol
