Actually ops core just released two new liner kits, one with a new type of dial liner the other with an h-nape.

So, what's the verdict on the new Lux Liner with Worm-dial? More comfortable and less bulky in the neck than the Occ-dial? Is there any difference fitting headsets under the shell?

I have an Ops-core on the way and am thinking of getting the Lux Liner, but am not sure about the Worm-dial vs a regular H-nape. I may want to wear a headset under the helmet like I'm used to with a MICH. I will run PVS-14 NODs on occasion.

Another alternative could be to run Team Wendy EPIC AIR Pads along with your H-Nape.
I put that in my Ops-Core, and the comfort level went up by more than nine thousand.

That said, I don't use my lid in the ways that you would, so I would suggest grabbing some more opinions on the matter as well.

I have the lux liner w/ h-nape. I'm not a fan of the 'worm dial' or the occ-dial. I get tremendously horrific headaches with the occ-dial suspension, and the standard h-nape is comfortable for me.

That option is on the back of my mind Pkekyo. It would be forefront if the Lux Liner didn't exist, so I'm curious now how that option is performing.

pkm - Got any opinion on how the Lux Liner compares to EPIC Air?

If you intend to use a regular headband earpro system you may have a problem with the Lux liner, as there's no way of chaneling the headband between the upper pads (unless they amended the design). Some people don't mind it, some really hate that.
There's also a stability trade of involved with the lux liner and H Nape, but there again, you'll have to see for yourself how much balance you're willing to let go for comfort.
I would say that Pkekyo's option is the way to go (plus Camfit if you need more stability), but YMMV.

Oh yeah, the Cam-fit. But I think that has the similar issue as the dial systems regarding under helmet headsets, or am I wrong?

All that said, as I think about it, I've been able to run my PVS-14s with a regular MICH and the Airframe with just the H-nape without really much issue. I just keep hearing how much more stable the dial systems are, but maybe that really only matters with dual-tube NODs.

Well, when I get my FAST in, I'll see for myself. :)

The LUX Liner with Worm Dial is the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. In fact, I went back to wearing my FAST helmet in lieu of the AirFrame after I installed the LUX. It's just that much more comfortable. As was said above, it is harder to channel the headband of comms under the LUX, but that is not a problem if you use rail-mounted headsets.

I love the AirFrame's design, but I will take comfort every day of the week and twice on Sunday when I'm wearing it for 8 hours+

As for stability, the Worm Dial version is actually very stable. I would put it right up there with the OCC.

I have worn both the Airframe and Opscore. I currently own the Opscore and wear it on my tac team call-outs etc. I chose the opscore because the Airframe just didn't feel as comfortable, it was a little tight towards the back of my head. I like the options to replace the opscore suspension system, which is something I was wanting to do.

It seems that the ops core is "winning" the battle. :D
Looks like CAG also uses only ops cores now.
Does somebody know if they use the normal or the maritime version?

As of right now, it appears to be the high cut (XP), not the maritime version.
