Interesting news.

"The US Marine Corps (USMC) will induct the new enhanced combat helmet (ECH) in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, following successful completion of stringent tests."

I called Max Pro Armor this morning about getting one. They said you have to go through their vendors (There is not list on the website, you have to ask them for it) and it should be available in June! (Glad I don't have to hope for a deployment to ever see one. :lol:)
