when you first get yer PC, machine wash it. Thenm take the wet hat out of the machine and roll it how ever you like it
sit it in the sun til its dry and it will stay rolled pretty much all the time. Some poeple but small "keeper stiches" in the back and/or sides to keep the roll.... but the main thing is, once its set, wear it alot and never wash it again.
as far as ballcaps, i produce and sell the " MIck Custom Modular Mission Cap"... its my rip off of the Killer Studios Mission Hat.... It s an Otto flex-fit hat in Khaki or Foiliage Green with a 4x2 velcro patch on the front , and a 4x1 velcro patch in the back. Mounted in the back stiched under the velcro is a loop of nylon and a D ring for securing the hat to your gear with a "biner... my ansewr to Killer Studios brim grommet. There are pics on this site somewhere, but i cant find em1 a few guys have bought em, and others are pateintlly awaiting delivery, but orders have WAY outpaced my sweing ability and i'm backed up a bit.
i never got the whole protec skate helmet thing......prolly cause i grw up skating in one... i have a MICH replica that needs an ACU cover, and BHD PASGT (6 color cover, my name in sharpie, helmet band and SWDGs ziptied together)
I also have PCs in every color ( 3 and 6 color desert,OD, ACU, MC, woody, MARPAT, desert marpat) and a couple boonies (ACU, woody, desert marpat)
but my usual headgear is my 5 year old never been washed perfectly crushed and rolled Ranger Cap
thats me on the left, and my Battle Buddy Punchline on the right..... his hat has been through everything mine has!
That liner looks to be from WW2. I can't tell what the color of the webbing is, but if it's khaki then it's WW2, if it's olive drab then it's probably post-war (Korean era). WW2 liners and shells were often used up into the 1980's. If it's WW2 you might be able to get more for it, you might want to check the shell also.
Edit: Unless of course if it's a Belgian liner, then it's worth very little.

Also where did you get that Danish Desert cover Kevlar?
Dunno why your pictures didnt show up here. A damn shame though since I´d love to see them. For what I can see you have an awesome collection there. I´m truly jealous.
About the Danish desertcamo cover - I was so damn lucky to get in touch with a guy who had a few of them for sale (didnt ask him where he got them from and probably dont want to know!). It cost me a fortune but it was worth it I think since they are extremely hard to find...
Can I ask where you got your Danish M84 helmet from? Whats the story behind it? Just curious since they are rather hard to find aswell...
Take care fellow kevlarcollectors
