Benefits of Army Head Gear For Soldiers and Civilians
You don’t have to be in the army to enjoy some of their gear. However, finding a local shop can be difficult. Thanks to the internet we are able to purchase army surplus items quickly and easily. One of the more common items is army head gear.
Army head gear plays a large role out in the field. One benefit is that it can protect you against the sun. If you have never been a victim of heat stroke then you are a lucky person. Heat stroke affects most of us at one point or another. By wearing a hat and drinking fluids you can help protect yourself against sun stroke. This condition can be fatal so it should not be joked around with.
Another benefit of army head gear is that is protects you from shrapnel or other falling debris. Some companies have even adopted army helmets in the construction industry because of their known strength. Many are able to stop a bullet and this means that there is a good chance it would take a hit from a small brick without doing much damage to your head.
One overlooked benefit is that an army hat or helmet can provide space to store items. These items may be in the form of small food rations or more high tech like night vision glasses. Even if you aren’t in the army, you can benefit from an army hat when out fishing for two reasons. The first is that it protects you from the sun and the second is that it gives you a place to store your lures.
Buying an army hat is simple. You can many items located on small surplus stores or my favorite place, auction sites. The only thing you need to keep in mind with auction sites is that, depending on the country you are living in, there might be laws preventing you from purchasing such items.
